Dave and Heather love people and the local church. They met at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee, where they were both studying. They married on August 8, 2003 shortly after graduation and continued pursuing higher education. Dave and Heather have been in fulltime ministry in the local church since 2004 when they took their first Youth Pastor position in North Alabama where they served for 11 years.
In 2014, God began to stir their hearts for transition. It wasn’t until an unexpected time of loss in their immediate family that the transition to church planting became clear. The Hobby’s moved to Louisville, Kentucky, along with another family and a young adult in August 2015, to begin the process of launching a new church.
Dave and Heather have a vibrant and creative daughter, Rebecca, and a loving and helpful son, Tanner who became a part of their forever family on July 6, 2015. Their entire family has developed a love for the city of Louisville and are excited about what God is doing in The Ville.
