This is our portal to chronicle the Haynes Family and their journey as Christian disciples.

Rob is a Doctoral Candidate at Durham University in Durham, Englad.  You can read more about his research under his tab on this site.  The family blog chronicles the family’s journey from full-time, local church ministry to relocating overseas and undertaking the doctoral degree.

The central purpose of their move is a strong call to grow in effectiveness in Mission and Ministry to the United Methodist Church in the United States and around the World.  As the church grows and the world gets smaller, important questions must be asked.  Rob and his family are seeking to be some of those who ask these questions.

The United Methodist Church nor any other agency provides financial support for our education or living expenses.  God meets our needs through using His people in participating in this work.  A Scholarship Fund has been established and tax-deductible contributions may be sent to:

Haynes Scholarship Fund
Hartford UMC
205 South 3rd Avenue
Hartford, AL  36344
Make checks payable to: Hartford UMC
On the memo line: Haynes Scholarship Fund.


Donations of airlines frequent flyer miles are also appreciated.  There is a great deal of travel involved in the research and your assistance is appreciated.  For more information, contact Rob using the form below.

Thank you for your prayerful support of this endeavor.  We look forward to what God has in store for His people.

  2. Thank you Marilee,
    As you probably read in the last post God has brought a great family to rent our home while we are in England. They couldn’t be a better match for the house. God is so good. We also found a home to rent in England. Thank you for your prayers that means so much to us.
