PASTORS & STAFF

Pastors

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.

Laura Lubeck

Children's Pastor

Laura Lubeck is the Children’s Pastor at Orlando North. Laura was born and raised in Lake Charles, LA. She attended McNeese State University and acquired her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. While she was in college, she met her husband Zach and they got married just two weeks after her graduation.

Laura taught the second grade for a full year, and then she was given the opportunity to join Zach in full-time ministry. She’s held many roles from Academic Coordinator at Crossroads Leadership College to Assistant Director of Mother’s Day Out. She has a love for children and her mission is help make them disciples of God and His Word. Laura is a mother of two kiddos and couldn’t be more excited to raise her little ones here in Florida. If you’re ever looking for Laura, she is probably outside soaking up all the sun or admiring any body of water/flowers.

Zach Lubeck

Student Ministries & Young Adults Pastor

Zach Lubeck is the Student Ministries & Young Adults’ Pastor at Orlando North. He was born on the mission field in Guatemala, but spent most of his childhood in Fort Worth, Texas. Zach holds a bachelor’s degree in Missions and General Ministry. He has served as an intern, Assistant Director at Crossroads Leadership College, and Middle School Pastor at Crossroads Church.

It was in Louisiana where Zach met his wife Laura, and they began their lives together. They have two children, Lillie Mae and Harrison. Zach loves to spend his free time at the movies when he isn’t chasing around his two toddlers. He is notorious for his “dad jokes” and never meets a stranger. From a young age, Zach recognized how blessed he was to be raised in a household that loves Jesus and His church. It’s these real life encounters with Christ that drives Zach to reach those who are lost and hurting.
