Bob Forbus is someone you should know because he has served as a Sunday School director for youth and adults for 34 years. He also serves on The Alabama Baptist board of directors.
Q: Why have you done this activity?
A: I just had a heart for youth knowing what young people were facing at that time. Later, I began to work with adults.
Q: What does this ministry demand?
A: Rather than being a demand, it is a joy for me to be able to serve the Lord in this fashion.
Q: What do you get from it?
A: Fellowship, sharing joys and sorrows with each other, praying about concerns in our community and good Bible study.
Q: What led you to the Sunday School ministry?
A: A love for people and a willingness to serve.
Q: How do other family members support you?
A: My wife is fully supportive and is equally involved. We are supportive of each other as we attempt to serve others in the church.
Q: How do you see yourself involved in this in the future?
A: As long as the Lord provides help and allows me to continue in the church, I want to be of service to Him.
Q: What difference will this ministry make for you in the future?
A: I believe that I am more attuned to the issues facing young adults as they mature in their Christian walk. It may be that my role is to serve as a mentor for some of those young adults.
