About The Author


Hi! I’m Bobby Benavides and I am the lead pastor of New Community Church Elkins. I’m married to Natasha, and we have three (almost four) awesome children!

I am really excited to have you with me right now! You see, I am very passionate about seeing people come to a deeper understanding of their relationship with Jesus. I also like to have fun in the process. Jesus laughed. God has a sense of humor (just look at the Ostrich, the thing puts its head in the ground to hide, with a big body just popping up…that’s funny). Sorry, taht’s how my mind works.

I love to make people laugh, but I seriously love helping people grow and strengthen their faith. I don’t heistate to discuss hard topics, but I also show how God longs for His creation to step into His purpose for them.

If you’re looking for a way to be challenged, yet encouraged, you came to the right place!

I would love for you to subscribe to my blog, so you don’t miss any future posts.

Check out my books.

Listen to my podcast(s).

And as more resources are made available, take advanatage of them!

I aim to be as authentic as possible. I don’t like to pretend or be anything different than what I show here or on social media. If I had to pick one quote to live by daily, it would be , “The prayer that precedes all other prayer is, may the real me meet the real you.”-C.S. Lewis

You will always meet the real me, and I hope to meet the real you!

I’m glad to have you along for the journey! I appreciate you!
