Public Speaker

Robert L. Hollis, Ph.D.

Clinical Christian Counseling
Marriage Therapist / Relationship Coach

In the world of public speaking, there's knowledge, there's charisma, and then there's Dr. Robert L. Hollis, "Dr. Rob."  Engaging, interactive, witty, and deeply factual, he relates to his audiences to bring hope and practical guidance to couples, and to singles seeking true love. His passion? Unleashing the transformative potential of relatable wisdom to elevate relationships and change lives forever.

The Life and Career of Dr. Rob -- Bounce

After graduating from Notre Dame in 1992, Rob embarked on a promising career as a software engineer while embracing the role of a devoted family man. However, the painful experience of infidelity disrupted both his engineering aspirations and family life, triggering a profound faith crisis. In 2015, Rob experienced a spiritual reawakening and dedicated his life to Christ. He answered a higher calling to save marriages by speaking to the hearts of singles, and bringing couples closer together. This mission led him to his partner in both life and purpose, Winona. Together, they have founded Eternal Light Christian Counseling Services, a nonprofit organization established to make professional Christian counseling more accessible.

The Man Behind the Mission

Dr. Rob isn't just another public speaker. He's a relationship visionary on a mission to transform lives through the power of understanding and connection. His passion for this mission is palpable, and his speaking style is nothing short of captivating, engaging, and interactive.

A Blend of Wisdom and Wit

What makes Dr. Rob's approach truly remarkable is his unique blend of wisdom and wit. He's not just about facts; he's about making those facts relatable, memorable, and actionable. With a deep foundation in temperament theory, Biblical studies, applied psychology, and a wealth of clinical and personal experiences, Dr. Rob is equipped with the knowledge to inspire change.

Unlocking Insights, One Engagement at a Time

At Dr. Rob's speaking engagements, you won't be a passive observer; you'll be an active participant in a transformative experience. You'll laugh, you'll learn, and you'll grow. His presentations are more than speeches; they're catalysts for personal and relational growth.

Strengthen Your Core

As the glue that holds your core building blocks together, personal relationships hold tremendous power and influence over the health and vitality of the larger structures they are part of.

The ripple effect of strong marriages and family relationships is profound. It starts at the core and extends outward, shaping the character of corporations, communities, and congregations alike. By investing in the well-being of these foundational relationships, we can create environments where people thrive, trust flourishes, and unity prevails. So, let's start with strengthening relationships, for they are the bedrock upon which a brighter future for all is built.

Guiding Lives with Skill and Grace

Robert L. Hollis (“Rob”) excels as a teacher and exhorter. He is capable in both the study and unpacking of Scripture for audiences at various levels of maturity. Over the years I have watched as Rob had developed skill in (1) explaining the relevance of a topic, (2) stepping through the parts of a passage to help people understand the meaning, and (3) clearly communicating expectations based on a clear teaching of Scripture.

Beyond his ability to handle Scripture well in the pulpit is his ability and willingness to do discipleship. Rob has seen success and fruit in the work of mentoring young men toward maturity. In the context of counseling he has helped people understand their own issues and how to apply biblical principles toward getting better. Some of the people that have been mentored by Rob have moved out of divorce and dysfunctional views of relationships into productive friendships and marital bliss. The Lord is using Robert L. Hollis to bring people good news about the good life in Christ.

I have always been glad about what has come as a result of people spending time with Rob. He is a good counselor and a much needed light in this present darkness through a persistent example of following Jesus.
