NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF COACHES & TMP COACH, SANTA BARBARA
Rob Dayton specializes in applying wise planning today to guide the inspired futures of tomorrow. Trained in urban planning at USC, Rob was a transportation and environmental consultant in Los Angeles.

Now 30 years later, Rob continues a career of “Paradise Management,” serving Santa Barbara as a senior Public Works official. His graduation from the Master’s Program in 2007 transformed Rob’s thinking about his role in government and how to leverage his influence.

At that same time, they also opened a restaurant and bar on Santa Barbara’s main street to share a space with the prayer house. Continuing in these roles, in 2015 Rob added coaching TMP in Santa Barbara and now the San Luis Obispo area to create the kingdom thinking and culture needed for city transformation. In 2020, Rob was asked to lead TMP in the role of the National Director of Coaches for the men. Rob and Nancy live in Santa Barbara, California, where their son and daughter also attend college
