  • ~ An AMAZING Vacation Bible School ~

    God showed up in an Amazing way AGAIN this year at our Vacation Bible School 2017.  With 89 children registered, and an average of 73 children attending each day, our hearts are filled with hope for the future.  We are so thankful for the help of many folks, not only from our church, but other surrounding churches.  They are ALL a true Blessing and are Mission Minded right here in our own community.  Their selfless acts of kindness and giving, are an inspiration to us all.  And a Special Thank You to our Pastor for his guidance and abundant prayers. 

    But most of all, TO GOD BE THE GLORY ! ! !

  • New Liberty Baptist Church welcomes our new Pastor

    Bob was raised in a Christian home. Confirmed an Episcopalian and Baptized a Baptist, but without Christ and without hope. Graduated from high school and college in Michigan (1965), Bob was “good” and “lost”.

    He joined the US Air Force in 1966 and became a combat pilot in Vietnam (1968-69) where he won the Distinguished Flying Cross and five Air medals. Returning to the States he was stationed at Charleston, SC where he commanded four engine jet transports over worldwide routes.

    Wanting a change of career in 1972, Bob began law school at the University of South Carolina. A year and a half later he realized he didn’t need a career change but a heart change. Surrendering his life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, he joined the church and felt called to local church ministry. After graduating from law school (1975) he enrolled at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY and graduated in 1978.

    Ellen married Bob in 1976 and they have two sons.  Dane is married to Nina.  They, with Bob and Ellen’s granddaughter Naomi (2 years old), live in New York City.  Darren and Marie live in Houston where they are parents to  Bob and Ellen’s two grandsons.  Solomon is 3 and a half and Armand is 1 year old.

    From 1979 until 2001, Bob planted and pastored churches in Cincinnati, OH and Columbia, SC.

    In 2001 he became convinced that the Lord was launching him into the marketplace of commerce and ideas. Since then he has hosted radio and television programs, birthed and managed a mediation and reconciliation service and became the first executive director of “Men Following Christ” in Winona Lake, IN.

    Since moving to Greenville, SC he has preached to local churches, taught in colleges and universities and hosted TV programs for Dove Broadcasting.  He was also blessed to represent the “Fellowship of Christian Athletes” from 2013-2016.

    Dr. Bob’s passion is to deliver the message of the “Two Cross Kingdom” to the saved and unsaved alike. It’s the”Cross of Jesus” that gets us into the Kingdom of God.  But it’s the “Cross of Discipleship” that get’s the Kingdom of God into us. (Luke 9:23)  If there is little evidence that the professing Christian has “taken up his own cross”, there is serious question as to whether he or she has ever surrendered to the cross of Jesus.
