Leaving Your Family Behind
Preparing for Military Deployment
As you face military deployment, you need more than sympathy and gratitude. You need hope and guidance for yourself and those you love. Jesus Christ experienced the pain of separation when he left heaven for earth, and he understands what you are facing. You can trust him to help in your time of need.
Rob Green shares timely biblical guidance for the soon-to-be-deployed on trusting God’s deliverance, cultivating a deep spiritual life now, and making the most of the time before you leave. His counsel will help to prepare you and your family for the challenges ahead.
About the Author
Author Rob Green, M.Div., is the pastor of Counseling and Seminary Ministries at Faith Church (Lafayette, Indiana). He is also a member of the council board of the Biblical Counseling Coalition as well as instructor and counselor at Faith Biblical Counseling.
Rob Green’s influences as a gospel-centered author are varied. He explains, “I have been greatly influenced by the man who encouraged me to stay in youth group when I was sixteen years old, by the discipleship of my pastor during my college years, and by the rank and file of heavenly citizens who have pursued Jesus despite trial, tribulation, suffering, persecution, or even success.”
Green wasn’t always a pastor and author; he has a B.S. in engineering physics from Ohio State University and after college wrote computer programs to process credit cards. After feeling a call to the ministry he entered seminary, eventually earning a M.Div. and a Ph.D. from Baptist Bible Seminary.
Writing, an extension of Rob Green’s biblical counseling and discipleship ministry, provides him a chance to “bring glory to God and to positively impact and encourage people to love Jesus and follow him all the days of their life.”
Rob Green and his wife Stephanie have three children. They enjoy hiking in the mountains out West, shooting guns, going on intense, activity-filled vacations, and serving in their local church together.
