Rob Burdette, First Mennonite Church
Rob Burdette began as transition pastor at First Mennonite Church on September 25. He comes to Denver from Shalom Mennonite Church in Newton, KS. After his family returned from MCC service in Canada and the US in 1998, Rob served the Ohio Conference of the Mennonite Church USA initially as a consultant in dealing with church conflict. After several years in that role, he was called to the pastorate as an interim pastor and in this role, Rob began to incorporate his experience as a mediator and facilitator into his pastoral duties. His first pastoral assignments were on a part-time basis while he was holding the position as the Director of The Center for Restorative Justice of North Central Ohio (offices in Akron and Wooster, Ohio). In May of 2004, he completed training for transitional pastors with Mennonite Church USA and shortly thereafter accepted a call as a full-time transitional pastor. Networks of transitional pastors developed within the Ohio Conference, Central and Western District Conferences as well as other regional Mennonite conferences in the US. Over the course of several years, he has been participating quarterly in transitional pastors' meetings where specific topics are presented and as a group they analyze and collaborate on individual case studies. Rob has also had additional specialized training in transitional ministry through Mennonite Church USA. Rob said, "I have found each one of my transitional callings to be an exciting and invigorating time for the church involved and for me. Rob is married to Patty, a retired professor from the Ohio State University.

Beacon Journal | 01/13/2006 | War and the Fourth Estate
Many thanks to Pastor Rob Burdette of Summit Mennonite Church for his Dec. 18 letter headlined " `Swords into plowshares,' " the most inspirational Christmas message I encountered during the entire season.Burdette offered an eloquent explanation of how Scripture relates to what it truly means to be at peace and how hard that is to attain and maintain.In the past, I've had difficulty in "getting" Bok's style of truth through humor as a political cartoonist.Perhaps his portrayal of a mean-spirited view of Christians and others who pursue peace over war was actually a parody on our current national attitude that blithely dismisses peace efforts as being too meek, mild and unrealistic in these days of reckless foreign policy and warrior worship that gets confused with patriotism.If this is so, then I will chalk one up for him.More important, it has taken the faithful words of Burdette to remind Christians about the Christmas message of peace.
