We first met Johnny and Allison Roberts at a marriage retreat. It ended up being all "network church" couples. We instantly clicked with them. Since that time, only about 7 months ago, we have been to visit them a few times and have been able to attend their church, TheBod.tv We also have had the privilege of meeting their entire family and let me tell you- we love them:) What a fun bunch! Their enthusiasm is contagious. They are ordinary people doing extraordinary things right where they grew up! We posted about them a while back and how blessed we are to have them as friends. It's great to see there are some really interesting and genuine people just right on the other side of our state we are linked with in ministry. God is so cool!
Introducing Johnny Roberts....
Where to begin? The idea for TheBOD.tv began 7 or 8 years ago as I began to envision a church that was… well REAL. The ironic thing about it was I had a picture of a church that used video as their primary source of teaching. I’m not sure exactly sure when LifeChurch.tv popped up on my radar but… as soon as it did I recognized that my idea wasn’t so crazy after all. I was ready to start but God seemed to have different plans. It just wasn’t happening. At least until December of 2007… I had finally given up. I had come to the conclusion that it would be someone else. Someone younger, someone smarter, someone with a seminary degree…. It just wasn’t going to be me. Strangely enough within six weeks of coming to that conclusion I distinctly remember God saying (not audibly but it might have well as been), “OK, you’re ready”. I was like… “No way God that deal is over… it’s going to be someone else… remember?”
