  2. Does anyone know why Bobby and Tori moved? I thought he had a good job at a church in Nashville. I hope nothing went wrong.

    1. MO- Very good question. I've wondered the same thing. Such a big deal was made of the move to Hendersonville and then no one is saying what the new plans are as if it's a secret or something. Bible Baptist Church seems like a wonderful Church and Hendersonville is a very nice community. :o)

    2. I don’t have any idea why they moved. I was a secretary at a church in the past. Sometimes there are just personality conflicts between staff members. There are usually just a few staff members at any church, so they have to work closely together. There can also be problems when staff members want to take the ministry in different directions. All that to say, they didn’t necessarily leave for a bad reason or a major problem. You don’t really know how things will work out until you try them.

    3. I’m hoping it’s because they need a children’s Pastor at Gil’s church.

    4. I wonder if they just wanted to be closer to family now that they have a baby.

    5. MO- Oh for goodness sakes, I hope they didn't leave Hendersonville because it was too far away from Tori's family. A three hour drive is nothing ...

    6. Maybe he unexpectedly received an offer closer to family. I'm sure things will be revealed in time.
