#39: Bobby Gourley - Meeting the Needs of Your Community during COVID-19

Ryan Latham

Meeting the Needs of Your Community during COVID-19

In August of 2014, Chapel called Pastor Bobby, his wife, Toyia, and their four children to Florence, Alabama, to be their lead pastor. They moved from Nashville, TN, and left their home church, Cornerstone Nashville, to plant roots in the Shoals.  
Pastor Bobby was a self-described atheist filled with bitterness, anger, and doubt. Bobby tried to fill the pain in his heart through lust, drugs, and alcohol always looking for the truth in the world. During his search for truth, Jesus found him and revealed His truth to Bobby. Pastor Bobby experienced God’s amazing grace, and you can watch his incredible story here: Bobby’s Testimony.  

Since that day, Bobby has had a passion and commitment to connecting with people who question God and His existence and help them see God’s love, truth, and grace. Pastor Bobby’s desire is to engage people where they are, make disciples, and raise up leaders who will change the world.  

Pastor Bobby is an innovative leader and an incredible preacher. He believes that Chapel should be the most empowering place in the world and strives to equip and empower people to be everything God has called them to be. He has a unique preaching style that makes the deep truths of the Bible relevant, simple, and applicable. He preaches with energy, humor, and power. He also uses visual techniques to illustrate biblical truths and demonstrate the beauty of the gospel.
