Robert Shaw came to be pastor of Garden City Chapel in 2001 after nearly 20 years in student ministry. He is originally from Macon, Georgia.
After graduating from college, Robert began a career in business and was involved in local ministry in Macon. Sensing a call to full time ministry, he moved to Ft. Worth, Texas, to attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he received a Master of Divinity degree.
After coming to the Chapel he has continued his education, receiving the Doctor of Ministry degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2011. His passion in ministry is to accurately handle the Word of Truth as indicated in Paul’s word in 1 Corinthians 4:1, “Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.”
He is married to his childhood sweetheart, Eva, and they have four children.
