Who We Are

Pastor Bobby & Toyia

In August of 2014, Christ 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 connect 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 incredible preacher. He believes that Christ 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.

Our Mission

We are a church for ALL PEOPLE to experience FULL LIFE in Jesus.

What Do We Do?

We want to Live & Love like Jesus. We say we seek to LIVE DIFFERENT & LOVE DIFFERENT. We keep things fairly simple.

WE PURSUE GOD.

We seek God & His presence through worship and His Word. This is primarily done during our Sunday Morning Worship Experiences where we celebrate who God is, what He has done, and what He is going to do.

WE BUILD COMMUNITY.

We don’t go to church. We are the church. We are a community of disciples who want to grow TOGETHER. We do this through connecting through small groups.

WE SERVE EACH OTHER.

We discover our greatness through serving & the greatest in God’s eyes are those who serve. We serve each other by becoming CHAMPIONS who make an impact in our church through serving.

WE MAKE AN IMPACT.

We exist to go into our community and the world to make an impact in the lives of others through serving, loving, and giving of ourselves and our lives.
