ROBERT MICHAELS

In 1978, Michaels left Norfolk bound for Columbia International University in Columbia, South Carolina where he earned his B.S. in Biblical Education, and worked as a weekend announcer for 100,000 watt WMHK and helped with concert promotion. In 1981 Rob enrolled at Wheaton College where he earned a Master’s Degree in Communications through an interdisciplinary program combining marketing, public relations, and interpersonal communications. While at Wheaton, Rob served several churches in the area as a pulpit supply when needed.

Likewise in Wheaton, Michaels worked at two agencies, one syndicating radio programs and writing copy, and the other providing marketing services for student and nurse recruiting, where he developed the first concert research package for Christian artists. In 1985, he moved to Nashville as VP of Marketing for a major record company, and in 1987 launched Lord & Michaels Entertainment where he provided marketing, media, and management services for music clients and speakers for more than 20 years.

In 2008, Rob became Executive Director for Global Tribe, a non-profit addressing poverty for at-risk people groups in various countries, including India, Mexico, and the Asian continent – launched in the U.S. by Newsboys. During that time he directed six successful REACH evangelistic events featuring Newsboys, partnered with local radio stations and churches.

2008 also saw Rob come full circle, returning to serve the law enforcement community as a volunteer Chaplain for the Williamson County Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 41.

It was July 2011 Michaels launched Serve & Protect, after stepping down from Global Tribe. “In June I was praying, because I knew God was moving in my heart,” says Michaels. “It was while I was sitting in church that God put Serve & Protect on my heart, and helped me see that since leaving law enforcement, which I loved, He has taken me on a journey that has prepared me for this calling.”

AGENT DOUG MONDA

Agent Doug Monda never saw it coming. In his 15-years as a police officer, SWAT cop, drug agent, lifelong athlete and adrenaline junkie, he was the last person to see what nearly cost him his life. In 2014 Monda was a trigger pull away from taking his own life. “I couldn’t escape the pain. I was so tired of being in pain, physically and mentally and no one could tell me anything or show me anything that could make it go away,” Monda said during a lengthy conversation about why he is now speaking out. “Ultimately, in my mind, at that point, the only way I could be pain free was to leave.” But fortunately for Monda his coworkers and close friends, including Chief Mike Cantaloupe, intervened through a program called Safe Call Now. “That’s what we did. We contacted them and these people from out of state across the country came out of nowhere to help me,” Monda added. “They’re there. You just have to ask for help. This is why I am speaking publicly. I don’t want anyone else to go through what I went through.”

“It’s all about awareness and knowing there is help available if you just ask for it,” Monda said. “I am so grateful for the people who helped save my life and I want others to see that if I can make it, they can too.”
