Orlando North



Rob Duford

Lead Pastor

Rob Duford is the founding pastor of Orlando North Church. He has served in various roles in the church world – youth pastor, young adult pastor, internship director, and now, lead pastor. Rob was born and raised in Midland, Michigan and unfortunately developed a die-hard passion for University of Michigan football. He did his undergraduate studies at Lee University and later completed his MBA from Regent University and his Masters of Biblical Studies from Reformed Theological Seminary.

In 1994 Rob did the most courageous thing of his life when, at Lee University, he asked a girl way out of his league on a date, and shockingly she said yes. Rob and Melanie have been married for twenty-five years and spend much of their free time succumbing to the schedules of their two teenage kids.

The passion of Rob’s life and ministry is to spread the message of the hope found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ particularly by living a life centered on bringing fame and glory to Him.

Elgin Combs

Worship & Young Adults Pastor

Elgin Combs is the Worship & Young Adults’ Pastor at Orlando North Church. He was born and raised in the Midwest, a native of Central Illinois (but a stranger to Chicago!). Elgin went to school at Greenville University for Music Business, and during that time, God called him and his wife, Christina into full-time ministry. They’ve been partners in ministry since 2003, having served in two other churches, as well as served as missionaries to the country of Moldova from 2018-2019.

They have three children – Lilian, Isaiah, and Judah. Elgin loves playing board games, drinking coffee, and may be the biggest fan of The Office that you’ll ever meet. Elgin loves music and is passionate about helping people to worship the Lord – not just with music, but as a lifestyle that is synonymous with being a Christian.

Mia Tearpak

Mia is originally from Colorado, and has also lived in Costa Rica and Peru.
