Prior to his work in ministry, Rob served as a reservist in the Canadian Armed Forces for 5 years. He has also spent over a decade working in health care as a care aide for people with disabilities.
Rob has a master’s degree in theology (MTS) from Trinity Western University (ACTS seminaries) and has also taken classes at Reformed Theological Seminary in North Carolina.

The Blazeckas have 3 children who attend our church. The Blazeckas enjoy art, music, and literature. When he’s not reading or playing video games, Rob has been known to occasionally go outside to hunt, fish, garden, and tend to livestock. He currently resides on an acreage where he keeps more projects going than he probably should.
A little country church - living Christ's love in our community, empowered by the Holy Spirit.
The Monarch Reformed Church was established in 1909 and is congregation of the Reformed Church in America (RCA), part of the Regional Synod of Canada (RSC), and a member of the Classis of the Canadian Prairies.
We believe in the historic Christian faith as confessed by believers through the ages. The Reformed church accepts the three universal creeds which arose in the early church: the Apostles Creed, the Athanasian Creed, and the Nicene Creed. In addition to these creeds there are four confessional statements which set forth the faith of the Reformed Church: the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dort and the Confession of Belhar. In 1978 the Reformed Church approved Our Song of Hope as a contemporary statement of faith in its ministry of witness, teaching, and worship.
