Bob Edwards/Music Minister

Bob Edwards BIO

     Bob Edwards has been a music educator for more than 40 years and a minister of music for 15 years. His mother instilled a love of music in him when he was a small boy and she was his school band director. After graduating from Plantation HS (Florida), he attended Florida State University and received a degree in Music Education (1974). He later received a Master’s Degree in Music Education from the University of North Florida (Jacksonville) and then an Educational Specialist Degree from Valdosta State University. While pursuing a Doctorate degree at Georgia Southern University he was approached by a member of the Patterson Baptist Church to consider being their Music Minister. He decided to discontinue his dissertation and concentrate his time and energy to the music ministry at Patterson Baptist Church.
     Bob has twice been an interim music director at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Blackshear. First, when Mike Stone became pastor at EBC and again when Gordon Butler left EBC. He has also been an interim music director at Hoboken Baptist Church. In January of 2012, Bob accepted the position of Music Minister at Patterson Baptist Church. “This has been one of the most rewarding and challenging experience of my life. I thoroughly enjoy working with the Adult Choir, Praise Band, and weekly services. To serve our Lord and Savior and bring music to PBC is a double blessing to me.” Bob is happily married to Kim Edwards and they have three children (Alexis, Darby, and Blake) and two grandchildren (Christian and Caden).
