Deacon Staff

Bob Jones

I was saved in 1972 at Buckner Baptist Church on Sunday the last day of a revival by CG Fisher and Johnny Sisemore, the pastor was Troy Hayes. I was baptized at the HWY 74 bridge. I have been a member of the church since 1970.

I have had the opportunity to serve in various roles in the church; including working as a youth leader, church treasurer, and became a deacon in 1979. I serve on the building committee.

Previously, I served as the Fayetteville Chief of Police. Now that I’m retired, I have time to tend to my garden and help the church.

I have been married to Kay. We have 2 sons Scott and Mike who are active with the church, and a daughter Brenda.

Two of my favorite bible verses are John 3:16 and 2 Corinthians 4-18.

John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

2 Corinthians 4:18.

18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

I believe that Buckner’s strength is the people who attend, their commitment to God, family, church, and their willingness to help with whatever needs to be done.
