About

Bob Clark  was born and raised in Memphis, TN (with brief stops in Phoenix, AZ and Los Angeles, CA) where he graduated from Harding Academy. He received degrees from Freed-Hardeman College and Harding University Graduate School of Religion. For 15 years Bob preached for a highly mobile, blue collar, ethnically diverse congregation in a large city on the East Coast. From July of 1997 until January 2010 Bob served as preaching minister for a multi-generational, white collar congregation in a small city in West Tennessee. 

Bob wore lots of hats while being the only minister on staff at a congregation of several hundred. He wore a different hat while leading a staff of several ministers. In both congregations Bob was blessed by being able to work alongside his wife, Lourene.

In May 2010 Bob began his final ministry with a rebuilding congregation in the Midwest where he served as preaching minister until his retirement in April 2021. Bob’s goal in retirement is to lead a simple and quiet life, doing more listening than talking; however, he may post on this blog occasionally.
