Pastor Buddy & Robin have served as the Senior Pastors of Life Church since 1995. Buddy is a native of the Richmond area and has called Mechanicsville home for nearly all of his life. He loves living in Hanover County and believes his life’s call is to reach the community that God has planted him in -the Metro Richmond, VA area. Buddy serves as an advisor to several churches around the country and has been actively involved in ministry since he was 16 years old. In 1990 he married his college sweetheart, Robin and they have two beautiful daughters, Lauren and Lindsey, and a grandson, Mason, who are the joy of their life. Buddy received a Bachelors degree in Theology in 1990 and is also a licensed Realtor. Buddy relaxes and gets frustrated by the same things: the Dallas Cowboys, the Virginia Cavaliers, and his golf game. His life scripture is Matt 6:33 – “but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Robin currently serves not only as the Pastor’s wife, but also as the Children's Minister at Life Church. Robin’s love for people and her fine example as a wife and mother have made a great impact on the Life Church family. Robin speaks all over the country at Ladies Conferences, Retreats, and Seminars. Robin has a heart for God and for his people.
