Pastor Bobby was raised on a farm in central Shenandoah Valley. After graduating from VA TECH he spent several years in sales. He met Wanda at local church and they married in 1988. During that first year of marriage God called Bobby to prepare for ministry, which took them to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa OK. While Bobby completed a Master of Divinity, Wanda finished a Masters in Church Music.
During their stay in Tulsa, they both interned at a United Methodist Church.
Upon graduating Bobby and Wanda moved back to VA, where Bobby begin pastoring in the town where he grew up. After six years, the Lord made it clear their next season was to church plant. In seeking the Lord as to where, the Holy Spirit pinpointed Winchester as the place. Crossroads was planted in 1998.
Since beginning in our home, Crossroads has met in seven locations around the Winchester area. The current space has been our home for over ten years. Bobby carries a pastor’s heart and a passion to see other local pastors working together in relational support to become a united voice for the community.
