Meet Our Staff
Rev. Robert Brozina
Born and Raised in Rock Hill, South Carolina; Rev. Brozina felt the call to ministry while in High School. This feeling was affirmed during his Christian Education course while at Presbyterian College. Upon graduation in 1983 he became the Director of Christian Education at Peace Presbyterian Church in Fayetteville, NC.
During his time at Peace Presbyterian Church the calling to the Ministry of Word and Sacrament was intensified. He followed the call and enrolled at Union Theological Seminary in Virginia. Following graduation in 1987, Robert completed an internship at Tinkling Spring Presbyterian Church in Fishersville, VA.
Since his ordination in 1989 he has served the church as pastor at Unity Presbyterian Church, Newton Grove, NC, Jackson Springs Presbyterian Church, Jackson Springs, NC, Lake City Presbyterian Church, Lake City, SC, as Chaplain at the Presbyterian Community, Clinton, SC, and as pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church, Spartanburg, SC.
Robert enjoys time with this family and friends while also visiting the beach, reading and gardening.
