About Robert
  • Education: I have an A.A.S Degree in Computer Electronics and a B.S. Degree in Human Services with a minor in Special Education with a License to teach in the state of Virginia. I have an M.S. Degree in Education.
  • Experience: My Dad has been a minister for over 30years and has traveled many years as an Evangelist. He has now been Pastoring for 15 years. I traveled with him playing music most of my life. I was his associate pastor until September 2009, when I began pastoring Falls Hill Apostolic Church of Jesus, located in Abingdon, VA. Later, I pastored Lake Park Church in Richlands, VA. I now am the Administrative Pastor at Soul's Harbor Church in Bristol, VA.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Read them as if you are hearing them. Then be a receptive hearer and do them.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: I have many sermons. But one sticks out in my mind that I preached called the Apostolic Doctrine of Salvation. Based on Acts 2:38 "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."(KJV)
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Tater People; two jars; and weights. Email for explanation...
  • Family: I have been married to my 17 years. She is the best thing God has gave me next to God’s saving grace. We have 1 daughter who is almost 14 and a son who is 10.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They are honored and talk about it all the time. My parents have said many of times that they are honored to have a son that listens to the "Voice of God."
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She has had great impact on them because she critiques them. She enjoys every one of them and always brags on me. She is my greatest inspiration. She helps bring me through the tuff times.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach like you’re a dying man with nothing to lose. Preach as if you are going to the cross. Preach as if there is no tomorrow and it is your last opportunity to stop someone from going to hell. There are two types of preachers that make me want to preach better, those who can and those who can't. A preacher must be ready to preach and ready to die!
  • Books that have had an impact: Prayer of Jabez, Bruce Wilkerson; On the Brink, Rod Parsley
  • Hobbies: I love music and teaching it. I play the guitar, bass, drums, organ, piano, mandolin, banjo, and do-bro. God has truly blessed me with talents. I also love spending time with my family.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Repent for the kingdom is at hand. Don’t die lost and go to hell!
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: My pants were to long so I kept stepping on them and pulling them up. Of course I didn’t realize it but my wife did. Also, I preached not realizing that my pants were unzipped until I got home that night after service.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Here lies a man of a great God.

    If you want to grow and be productive in the Kingdom of God, "It's Up to You."

    I have always wanted to raise my children in the house of God to use their gifts and talents for Christ. My wife and I have taught them the ways of God. We have worked hard to teach them how to be respectful and disciplined. We want them to grow up and be the best version of themselves by more

  • Led By Love

    Contributed on Aug 22, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    Never once did Jesus fail in this, not in his heartbreak or his anger, not in his joy or his betrayal. Jesus Led By Love. His default has always been love! He led with love because He was led by love! I believe it’s time for the church to be “Led By Love” so we can lead with love!

    The last months and most recently the last few weeks have been pretty challenging for us all. I heard one pastor say that this has been the toughest season he's ever led through from leading through this COVID 19, the political insanity, the news insanity, to the most recent events of the more

  • An Identity Crisis

    based on 24 ratings

    Sometimes in life the devil trys to make us have an "Identity Crisis." He did it to Christ but he over powered him with the Word of God.

    An Identity Crisis By Evangelist Robert Osborne Matt. 4:1-11 This is the first place where Christ has the opportunity to question who he really is. Jesus was hungry. It is one of the wiles of Satan to take advantage of our outward condition, in that to plant the battery of his more
