Bobby Tibbles is enjoying his fourth year of service at Vision Ministries where he ministers  many, different ways including construction work, grounds maintenance, facility maintenance and most importantly, the ministering of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Serving alongside him in both of these capacities is his wife of twenty-four years, Connie. Bobby and Connie have four adult children and two beautiful grandchildren, Alyssa, Dalton, Hunter, Christian and Kaylee and Kenzie.
