    Bob joins Darren as one of our native Texans here on staff.  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 and completed seminary while serving as a consultant to the Army and part-time Director for our Young Adults and Singles ministries.  Bob then joined our staff for full-time ministry in early 2015.


     

    Bob and his wife Kathi have been married for over 23 years following a story-book wedding on the beach in Hawaii while stationed there in 1995.  Kathi serves as a government civilian leading a highly specialized program that supports the Army.  They are blessed with three children together, Madison (age 20), Emma (age 15), and little Bobby (age 12) 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 Dallas Cowboys football games when not doing their favorite thing – having fun family time with the kids.

     

    Bob holds 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.  He is also completing a master degree in counseling to enhance our ability to serve and support you.  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.
