About Rob McBryde

Rob McBrydeNative Arkansan Living in California

Welcome! My name is Rob McBryde. Born and raised in Arkansas, I have lived in states all across the country from Colorado, Georgia, and Illinois to California, and currently live in the Los Angeles area with my wife and son. We are about four years into planting a diverse church called The Church We Hope For where my wife Inés is one of two co-lead pastors. We are the parents of one amazing son who loves soccer, skateboarding, and almost all the same music I do.

Faith and Leadership

From my roots as a follower of Jesus Christ since the age of ten to earning a Master of Arts at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, my faith journey has been a guiding force. In 2003, I returned to Little Rock, serving as the young adults pastor and director of communications at the Mosaic Church of Central Arkansas. Here, I delved into self-taught web design, uncovering my affinity for the digital world.

Web Design

In December 2006, I founded IVM Communications, later rebranded as IVM Web Solutions, transforming a side hustle into a thriving web design business. Over the years, I crafted over 40 websites for diverse clients, including BBQ contest promoters, local coffee shops, churches, and non-profit organizations. Learn more about my web consulting here.

Project Management

This entrepreneurial journey paved the way for an 11-year career in project management at various digital agencies. My knack for navigating the intricacies of projects led to my current role as a Senior Program Manager of the Customer Portal at Red Hat, a leading software company specializing in open source solutions. 

Creating Inclusive Spaces

With a background in vocational ministry and extensive experience in digital agencies, I’ve cultivated a reputation for creating safe and inclusive spaces. Known for making people feel seen and heard, my leadership style thrives on collaboration, bringing teams together to form cohesive and meaningful solutions.

This blog serves as my intersection of faith, life, and the digital landscape. Explore how my diverse experiences converge, offering a unique blend of pastoral insight and professional expertise.
