bobby linkous, Lead Pastor
In August of 2015, Corner-Stone welcomed Bobby Linkous as our new lead pastor. Bobby and his wife Carlie were married in 1984 while he was serving in his first ministry position as a Student Minister. The couple has two daughters, Ashley, 26, and Bethany, 20.
Bobby graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from Georgia State University in 1984 and went on to receive his Masters degree from Southwestern Theological Seminary in 1988. He has served in ministry for 33 years in roles ranging from Student Ministry, Education Ministry and Lead Pastor. Most recently, Bobby served as the Lead Pastor at Shadowbrook Church in Suwanee, Georgia for 23 years.
Bobby believes that the church has been called to serve the surrounding community by sharing the truth of the Gospel in both word and deed and is best carried out with Christ-centered preaching and Gospel-driven ministry. Bobby's burning desire is to carry out the beauty displayed in 2 Corinthians 5:17-19... "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation."
The body of Corner-Stone looks forward to serving our community alongside Bobby and Carlie as we walk into this next phase in the history of our church.
