Robbie Symons is the founding Pastor of Hope Bible Church Oakville. His greatest passion is to see Jesus Christ glorified as people realize their potential only through His amazing power.
With a Spirit-led resolve to proclaim the Word of God without apology, to passionately worship His only Son, and to believe firmly in the power of prayer, Jesus is building His Church. Hope Oakville has experienced the power and grace of the Lord in its growth from a Bible study of 18 people in 2003 to over 4000 people today.
God burdened Robbie and the church elders early on with the conviction to plant churches. Through much prayer, they have seen the birth of vibrant churches across Canada in Mississauga (2009), Niagara (2011), Toronto West (2013), Brantford (2014), Kelowna (2014) and Ottawa (2017).
In 2014 Live in the Light, a radio ministry of Hope Oakville, began airing Pastor Robbie’s messages in a 30-minute weekday program that plays in the greater Toronto area, Atlantic Canada, and greater Buffalo areas on weekdays on JOY1250, WDCX, and Harvester Radio. Live in the Light exists to see radical transformation in God’s people through the revelation of God’s truth.
Robbie and his wife Gillian live in Burlington, Ontario with their four children.
