Bro. Robby Hargrave was called to Holly Brook Baptist Church in August 2015 to serve the Lord here in youth ministry and also by overseeing our children’s ministry. Bro. Robby has was raised in the Woodville TX area where he graduated high school in 1996. He was raised in a pastor’s home and after some time of searching and seeking, he surrendered to the Lord’s call into ministry. He has been in youth ministry for many years and is ordained into the Gospel Ministry. He and Lacy have a passion for leading young people to know the Lord and to be disciples of the Lord. They have a son Josiah, and a daughter Ava.
At the age of nine, I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior at R A camp at Pineywoods Baptist Encampment in east Texas. The grandson of a Baptist minister and the son of a Baptist deacon and song director, provided me the opportunity to learn of Christ’s sacrifice for me at a very early age. My Christian parents taught me by word and example. While I was a student at Stephen F. Austin University, I felt God’s call on my life and changed my major study to Voice and Music to prepare for a ministry in music. I served in 2 churches while I was a college student and then my military assignment as a chaplain’s assistant had me as the music director of the chapel choir and music program at the chapel among other duties on Fort Ord. Following military service I attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth.
Churches where I have served include First Baptist, Mansfield; Portland Ave. Baptist, Oklahoma City; Hampton Place Baptist, Dallas; Hillcrest Baptist, Jasper; First Baptist, Aledo; Hainesville Baptist, Mineola; as well as Assistant Director of Missions for the Sabine Neches Area in the areas of education and music. We have served at Hollybrook since Sept. 2011. Leading folks to worship through music has been my desire and ministry for approximately 47 years.
