Luke and Robyn Spaulding: SEND Program Facilitators

By Lydia Gingerich

RMM excitedly welcomes two new staff members to fill the role of SEND program facilitators: Luke and Robyn Spaulding. In the past, Luke and Robyn have both been involved with the SEND Department as REACH participants (2013-2014), Luke as a team leader (2014-2015), and Robyn as a SEND intern (2015). They enjoyed the community they experienced at the Rosedale International Center (RIC) and look forward to joining the staff as program facilitators.

After getting married in 2016, the Spauldings spent the last year and a half in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where Luke held a job in construction and Robyn helped teach a preschool class and worked at a coffee shop. Luke and Robyn like to spend their time together drinking coffee, running (usually on treadmills at this time of the year), and exploring new restaurants.

Moving to the RIC is a refreshing change of pace for this people-loving couple. In his construction job Luke spent most of the day wearing earplugs, “as an extrovert that didn't do well for me.” He hopes to be a marriage and family counselor one day and looks forward to using his relational skills as program facilitator for SEND.

“We all have the same goal and the same thing that’s driving us. And the prayer times with everyone – you can’t find a job or environment like that easily.” Robyn also welcomes the opportunity to build relationships with those who come to the RIC as well as the rest of the RMM staff. “We all have the same goal and the same thing that’s driving us. And the prayer times with everyone – you can’t find a job or environment like that easily.”

The program facilitator position within the SEND Department includes planning and providing leadership for City Challenge and REACH as well as discipling and mentoring the SEND interns.

In this new position, the Spauldings are eager to meet lots of people, work closely with the SEND interns, and use their gifts to invite the nations to worship Jesus. RMM is reciprocally glad to have them here and excited to see how God will use them.


Pray for the Spauldings as they transition into this role and begin to train the 2018 SEND Interns. Pray that God would bless their work and that young people would be drawn to Jesus through their service.
