    care and community PASTOR

    BOBthornton@BURKECOMMUNITY.COM

    Bob joins Darren as one of our native Texans here on staff – putting another weight on the scale of those who cheer for the beloved Dallas Cowboys.  Raised in a solid Bible believing community church in Dallas, Bob learned early the rich value and relevance of Christ to our daily lives.

     

    After enjoying a 23-year Army career with duty across the United States and overseas, Bob retired from his final assignment at the Pentagon in 2010. Soon after this, Bob joined the staff at BCC as Director for Young Adults and Singles ministries, which he led for two years.  Bob returned to the staff in May 2015 to help lead adult ministries before transitioning to serve as our Care and Community Pastor. 

     

    Bob and his lovely wife Kathi have been married for over 20 years following a story-book wedding on the beach in Hawaii while stationed there in 1995.  Kathi, who also retired from the Army, still supports the Army as a specialized consultant. They are blessed with three children together, Madison (age 189), Emma (age 13), and little Bobby (age 10) who do their part to keep Bob and Kathi young.  They also have two older children, Danielle and Bryan, born to Kathi when previously married.  Bob and Kathi enjoy catching movies and yelling at the TV during Cowboys football games when not doing their favorite thing – having fun family time with the kids.

     

    Bob has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Houston, a post-graduate certificate in Strategic Intelligence from the Defense Intelligence Agency’s National Intelligence University, and a Master of Arts in Christian Leadership from Dallas Theological Seminary.  Bob is thrilled to be on staff to encourage and equip others for healthy life while advancing our mission to know Christ and make Him known.
