Reuniting after Military Deployment
Help for the Transition
Your excitement at the prospect of reunion is tempered with anxiety. You have heard the stories of divorce, discouragement, and depression. Will your account be any different? Rob Green assures you that successful reunification is possible because of the help found in Jesus Christ. Green offers practical advice for seeking to understand your spouse’s struggles, reevaluating schedules and responsibilities, and using your new family time with purpose. By taking steps to intentionally transition out of “deployment mode” and back into the unity God has given you as husband and wife, you can rebuild a family that is stronger than ever.
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.
