Leonard church of Christ
My name is Bob Lewis. I grew up in the small hill country town of Utopia, Tx. I have always been associated with hard work and country living. After graduating high school I joined the ranks of the Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice- Institutional Divison. I spent several years with them before being recruited by Wal-Mart. But, the corporate world was not for me, and after being a store manager for several years I decided to slow down and return to the hill country.
My wife and I decided just a few years ago that we were in a position to do more for the work of the church than we were doing at the time. After several months of prayer, and conversations, we decided to go to preaching school. We attended the Brown Trail School of Preaching from 2011-2012 for an intense two year program of Bible study and preaching.
Early in 2011, I interviewed with the congregation here in Leonard, and to my surprise and delight, they offered me the position here as their minister. I had to maintain my last year of school and preaching every weekend for the folks here, and it proved to be difficult but worth it. We are looking forward to many years with this family here, and are very excited about what the future may hold for us here.
I have been married to my wife Emily, of Utopia for almost 18 years now, and we have three children. Austin our oldest son is 13 now, and Chase the middle son is 10, then comes Madilyn "Mad Maddie" who is 8. We are devoted to the Lord and His church, and look forward to a long and healthy life working here with the good people of Leonard, TX.
