Robert Davis was born in Washington, D.C. where the majority of his early education was Christian. As Robert grew older he chose to deny his calling to preach. However, as a teenager he accepted motivational speaking engagements at youth rallies in the D.C. metro area, which began his introduction to preaching the gospel.
Davis attended Oakwood University (formerly Oakwood College) in Huntsville, Alabama, where he finally accepted his calling to the gospel ministry and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in theology with a minor in biblical languages.
In 1997 Davis began full time employment with the Seventh-day Adventist Church. He planted new churches in Camden, Arkansas and Rayville, Louisiana, leading many souls to Christ as a result of evangelistic endeavors and revivals. He is founder and former speaker for both the radio program Moments of Victorious Living and the Sunday morning TV program The Smyrna Worship in Alexandria, Louisiana.
While serving as senior pastor for the Forest Hill Church, Davis also served as director of chaplains for Bridgeway Hospice in Fort Worth, Texas. Pastor Davis pastored for two years in Charlotte, North Carolina with over 130 baptisms, and began a thriving weekly TV ministry there. He holds a Master of Divinity with emphasis in pastoral counseling, as well as a Doctor of Divinity with concentration in marriage and family, both from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan.
Pastor Davis’ most recent assignment before coming to Park Hill Church was with the Berean Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he also served as president of the Berean Wellness and Community Support Center, a nonprofit organization that provides health, education and family services to low-income individuals of Baton Rouge.
He is happily married to the former Denise Grant of New York via Manchester, Jamaica. Denise is a graduate of Andrews University with a degree in speech language pathology and audiology, and a masters in communication science disorders from Southern University and A&M College. Denise is currently a candidate for Doctor of Clinical Science in speech language pathology. She is also the owner of Hopewell Pediatric Therapy in Baton Rouge.
The couple have been blessed with four wonderful children: Samantha (married to Nathaniel Blasse of New York), and Leah (currently at Oakwood University), Robert Jr. (11) and Elise (9). They are also the proud grandparents of two beautiful granddaughters: Giana and Genessa Blasse. Pastor Davis loves to tell people about his best friend Jesus, but more importantly he wants to see Jesus for himself someday.
