Rob Lester

I was born in Tucson but only stayed for 2 months since my dad was in the Air Force. We moved to Oklahoma where I grew up and graduated from high school. After graduating I tried the college route but was unsuccessful and found myself joining the Army. I served in Germany, Desert Storm, Korea, Ft. Benning and Ft. Riley. When I got out I tried many things from becoming a certified Aircraft Mechanic, a youth pastor, to Senior Pastor. Eventually I found myself back in Tucson with my wife and 5 kids going to the U of A getting my Bachelor of Science in Physical Education. I graduated from the U of A in 2011 and started working at Elvira Elementary as their PE teacher. After a 3-year stint at Elvira, I accepted a full-time position with Higher Ground as the program director, since then I have worked in every position here at HG. Now I have the privilege to serve as “Batman’s” Executive Assistant... or better yet “Alfred”.
