Bobby joined our staff team in August 2020 as one of our Youth Ministry Interns, where his focus will be on middle school operations and River Youth Live. Bobby has been at The River since summer 2011 and has been serving with the youth group since 2016.
Bobby's previous experience includes working at a youth and children’s community theater in Milpitas. He began in 2009 and is still involved in productions there today. During COVID, his work life transitioned a lot allowing him to apply for this youth position. He is looking forward to exploring ministry. Bobby explains, "my middle school and high school years were some of the hardest in my life. God stepped in and put a family in my life that showed me what it was like to live with faith, and who loved me for who I was, pretty broken. And after some years God did amazing things to renew my life. I want Youth to know that God is present in their lives and always working behind the scenes to pave a way that is good for them."
Bobby describes himself as a really visual person. He loves to create–theater design, digital art, and painting are all things he loves to experiment with. He also finds nature, camping, hiking, and beach trips to be centering experiences. He has been known to call Disneyland his second home.
