I am a husband, father, pastor, teacher, and author striving to love Jesus first. I am a fan of all things Tolkien, Lewis, Marvel and Star Wars. In 2016, I released my first book, The Filling, which you can find here. In 2017, I released my second book, Pray Like This, which you can find here. I lived in Hendersonville, NC, where I worked on staff at Mud Creek Baptist Church (2001-2018). I accepted the call to become the Sr. Pastor at Pleasant Garden Baptist Church in Pleasant Garden, NC in June 2018.
I like school (Fruitland Baptist Bible College, A.A., 2001; North Greenville University, B.A., 2003; The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, M.Div., 2007; and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ed.D., 2013). I am also privileged to serve as professor of theology at Fruitland Baptist Bible College (on campus 2009-2018, online instructor 2015-present). I have been married to Diana since 2003 and we have one son, Joseph. You can connect with me on Twitter @RobertHefner.
