Pastor Adam Weber
Adam Weber is the lead pastor and founder of Embrace. He likes typewriters, drives a Rambler, cheers for the Cincinnati Bengals, and has seven chickens (Yep, seven). He once made worldwide news when a turkey vulture fell out of the sky and landed on his back porch during an ice storm. Google it.
Adam started Embrace in 2006 when he was 24 years old. He wasn't planning on becoming a pastor, but God had a different plan. Adam has been recognized as one of the youngest pastors on the list of fastest-growing churches in the country, speaks at national conferences, hosts a podcast, and wrote the books Talking With God and Love Has a Name.
Adam's married to his beautiful wife, Becky, and has four kids: Hudson, Wilson, Grayson, and Anderson.
Like many small-town boys growing up in the Midwest, Rob Roozeboom’s desire was to be a farmer and an athlete. Muscular Dystrophy cut short both those dreams while he was still in his teens.
But that was the beginning of Rob’s story, not the end.
Today, Rob is a man on a mission “to take what I’ve been dealt with and use it to affect the lives of others”. He’s the founder and president of RISE Ministries, Inc., an organization that teaches teens and adults how to overcome adversity in their lives.
Rob travels the country giving motivational speeches to a variety of audiences. In 2001 and 2002, he was featured nationally on the Jerry Lewis MDA telethon, along with his wife, Sharla. Rob speaks from the heart and from experience.
He’s journeyed through loneliness, depression, substance abuse, rebellion, and suicidal despair; and has come out the other side with something important to say. Rob, Sharla, and their son, Jager, and daughters, Riley and Aidan, live in Sheldon Iowa, where Rob enthusiastically helps his father-in-law harvest crops each fall.
Rob’s engaging personality and natural eloquence make it easy for others to learn what it’s like to live with a neuromuscular disease, and how to dream new dreams. You’ll be inspired in new ways after hearing Rob’s story.
Rob has shared the stage with artist such as: Jeremy Camp, Tenth Avenue North, Newsboys, MercyMe, Matthew West, Hawk Nelson, Mandisa, Matt Maher, Jason Gray, Mark Schultz, Ginny Owens, Sara Groves, along with speakers and comedians: Ken Davis, Daren Streblow, Jep Robertson, Taylor Mason, Jay Laffoon and Ben Glenn.
