Rob Fultz, a 2001 Lee alumnus, has been appointed the new campus pastor for Lee University, effective next month.
“We are fortunate to welcome Rob back to Lee as our new campus pastor,” said Dr. Mike Hayes, vice president for student development at Lee. “He brings a wealth of church leadership experiences and the caring heart of a pastor to the role.”
Pastor Fultz has served as the lead campus pastor for Saddleback Church in Corona, Ca. for the past three years and was the executive pastor at the Irvine Saddleback campus before that. Prior to Saddleback, he was the state youth coordinator in Fountain Valley, Ca.; the student ministry pastor at Living Waters Christian Fellowship in Fountain Valley; and the senior pastor at Centerpoint Church of God in Woodbridge, Va.
He was the interim chair for Regent University’s political science department from 2005-2007 and also served a stint in the U.S.
"I am honored to have the opportunity to return to Lee and cannot wait to begin my journey as campus pastor,” said Pastor Fultz. “God has given me such a deep burden to serve the students, faculty and staff, and I am eager to see what He is going to do in and through the university."
"Fultz uses his strengths, gifts, experiences, and resources to lead leaders and build up those who build the Kingdom," officials said.
“We look forward to Rob joining our team to help lead our efforts in developing the faith of our students,” said Dr. Hayes.
Pastor Fultz received his master of arts in Christian ministries from Biola University and a master of arts in government and public policy from Regent University. He earned his bachelor of science in Christian education from Lee University and is currently pursuing his doctor of philosophy in church revitalization strategies.
While at Lee, Pastor Fultz received the Zeno C. Tharp award, given to a Lee senior who shows the greatest promise of making a significant contribution to the Church.
Pastor Fultz and his wife, Dana, have two sons, Caleb and Ethan.
