Getting to Know Bobby
Q: When/how did you become involved with Lightbearers?

A: I became involved with Lightbearers in 2015 when I married Hannah, who had just finished the discipleship program. Since then I’ve served the Fayetteville community on and off in property improvements.


A: I’m excited about Lightbearers because it gives me the opportunity to fulfill the Great Commission while also ministering to students at a crucial point in their faith walk.

Q: What has been the most influential book you've read this past year and why?

A: The most influential book I’ve read this year is The Disciple Making Parent by Chap Bettis. Bettis gives a biblical vision for parenthood and teaches you how to keep the first thing in parenting the first thing. That is, raising your children to know and trust Jesus.

Q: How do you like to spend your time when you're not working?

A: When I’m not working I enjoy time in my small woodshop, playing guitar, drinking tea, playing board games and spending time with Hannah and my kids.
