Robby has served as Long Hollow Baptist Church\’s Senior Pastor since 2015. He wasn\’t always a pastor, though.
For three years, he battled a $180 a day drug addiction that ravaged his life. After losing eight friends to drug related deaths, watching six other friends get arrested and completing two stints in rehab, Robby remembered the Gospel he heard in college and was radically saved on November 12, 2002.
Robby met weekly with David Platt, a seminary student for accountability, prayer and Bible study, which instilled a passion for missions, expository preaching and disciple-making in his life. he holds a Masters of Divinity in Expository Preaching and a Ph. D. in Preaching from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Today, Robby\’s gospel conviction and evangelistic zeal drive him to passionately \”make disciples who make disciples.\”
Robby and his beautiful wife, Kandi, have two young sons: Rig and Ryder
