Robert Elkin

Assistant Director, Training
Brooklyn, NY

Robert Elkin oversees Incubator in NYC, the flagship training program at CTC. His vision is to develop a training ecosystem that helps church planters start new creative expressions of the kingdom of God while remaining happy and healthy. 

Robert has twelve years of church planting experience in NYC including starting, closing, and replanting churches. He knows firsthand both the thrilling breakthroughs and painful challenges involved in urban church planting, and he is excited to steward his story through training and coaching other planters. 

Robert and his wife Sarah live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with their endlessly curious son and fiercely independent daughter. They love road trips, thrift shops, and long conversations with friends around the dinner table. Together they have learned to anticipate the unfolding story of God, and they live by this motto: Redemption Washes Backwards (Wait For It).
