Ilderton, Rob & Jenny
Mission To the World: England Church Planting
Rob and Jenny Ilderton both came to faith at an early age and have long had an interest in serving in missions. Rob grew up in a pastor’s home in South Carolina and was called to pastoral ministry while on a mission trip to Tanzania during high school. Jenny grew up on a farm in Illinois and felt God’s calling to missions through several trips to Europe during and after college.
God brought their lives together in 2006 while Rob was completing his M.Div. at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte. Upon his graduation in 2007, they moved to Lancaster, PA where Rob served with Reformed University Fellowship as the campus minister at Millersville University and Jenny volunteered in women’s, children’s and music ministry at their local church. In that time, God has grown their family and their desire to serve overseas.
In 2012 they were called to serve with Mission to the World in England. Where they will be assisting British church planters in planting Gospel proclaiming churches. Their first two years will be in London where they will work with an established church and develop a long-term church planting partnership.
Rob and Jenny have three children: Miriam (6), Gus (4), and Lottie (18 months)
