Who We Are

We are a booming, non-denominational Bible church with a strong emphasis on "Roots" and "Relevance". You'll find expositional teaching, exciting worship, credal expressions, missional community and a contemporary spirit in our services. We practice our identity in L.I.F.E. by Living in Community, Investing in Growth, Finding our Purpose and Embracing our Mission. Lead Pastor Bobby Conway is also the founder of LIFE Fellowship and is also known as the "One-Minute Apologist" (following him on YouTube). Our cross-generational leadership team ministers to a church community that runs the spectrum from young single professionals, to dynamic and growing families, to empty nesters. In our eighth year, we are bursting at the seams with four services and have purchased land in Cornelius, NC for a new permanent campus. Visit our website for more information!

Our Services

What are services like?
Our services vary from week-to-week with a constant contemporary worship time that may be acoustic one week and energetic the next. Whether in our main auditorium or in the "Venue" service which features a live video feed of the message, a praise band and Scripturally-accurate lyrics invite all to worship. Pastor Bobby's messages are substantive and in-depth expositions -- frequently part of a study of a particular book of the Bible. Don't expect "church-lite" here. You will find thought-provoking, relevant, practical messages built carefully on the Word of God. Services are generally 75-90 minutes in length. Kidlife provides instruction during services from infants through sixth grade. Stay afterwards or come early for Life University courses that emphasize discipleship, apologetics and practical Christian living.

What is the community like?
Our church community reflects our local community of the Lake Norman Region of Metropolitan Charlotte. People of all ages, backgrounds, single, married, young, old, professional, blue-collar -- it doesn't matter. All are welcome and all are represented. Come as you are -- you'll see everything from suits to shorts on a typical Sunday and nobody notices. Come a few minutes early for a good seat.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are more than welcome to join us if you are not a Christian but are searching for significant answers to life's BIG questions. Pastor Bobby and many others in the LIFE Fellowship community have a passion for apologetics which is the Biblical science of providing clear answers to difficult theological questions. We are unapologetically committed to the Bible, but you'll find no one getting "thumped" by it. An atheist or a theist, gay or straight, rich or poor, skeptical or agnostic, seeking or burned out by religion -- you'll be treated like family....maybe better! We accept people where they are and allow God's love and Truth to help us get where we need to be! We'll take the time throughout the week to answer any questions you might have.

Bobby Conway

Bobby Conway

Bobby Conway grew up in California. As a young athlete and quintessential Californian the furthest thing from his mind during his youth years was God. In fact, Bobby never heard the Good News of Jesus Christ until he was nineteen years of age. While playing college baseball in Southern California, a teammate invited him to church to hear an evangelist by the name of Greg Laurie. After several visits to hear this evangelist and many questions later, Bobby was ready to give his life to Jesus Christ. This marked a moment of colossal change in Bobby's story. Bobby gave up th e baggage from his past, let go of his vices and fully surrendered to live his life for Jesus Christ. Bobby has been quoted as saying, "The last job my buddies from the past would have ever imagined me doing is serving as a pastor or Christian apologist!" After coming to Christ, Bobby plugged into a great church in Orange County, CA. It was during this time in 1996, where dramatic change began to take place in his life. As he was discipled in the Scriptures, he experienced incredible growth, freedom and joy which culminated in the Lord leading him toward a life devoted to ministry with the goal of planting a church. His life as a growing disciple of Jesus was to share the story of God's salvation to anyone and everyone with whom he came in contact. As he matured spiritually, he developed a deep thirst for Truth, apologetics, evangelism and discipleship and these would become pillars in his personal approach to ministry. To prepare further for his calling, he moved to Arkansas to attend school. There he met and married his wife, Heather, whom Bobby describes as his "best friend." God prepared Bobby and Heather for the dream of starting a ch urch by giving Bobby practical hands on experience through a leadership residency at Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, an internship opportunity at Fellowship Bible Church North in Plano, Texas, and an associate teaching pastor position at a church in Conway, Arkansas. After Bobby received his under graduate degree in Bible in Conway, Arkansas, he moved to Dallas where he earned his Masters of Theology (ThM) from Dallas Theological Seminary. From there, he would go on to attain a Doctorate of Ministry in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is currently researching out different Ph.D. programs and hopes to enter one in the near future. A voracious reader, Bobby enjoys pouring over books on theology, apologetics and contemporary issues. Upon graduating from Dallas Seminary, he moved to Huntersville, North Carolina with a team of leaders who shared his passion for planting a church in the booming Charlotte Metrolina Region. In 2004, Life Fellowship Church was founded at the Havana Social Club and today it is a thriving church in that area. Life Fellowship enjoys a vibrant and growing ministry and currently meets at the Community School of Davidson where hundreds of people gather for their multiple Sunday services and Life University classes and then reconnect throughout the week in scores of Life Group home fellowships. There is a spirit of excitement in the services as this spiritual family enjoy expository and substantive teaching, meaningful and contemporary worship and praise and practical training for doing "life" together. Bobby is also the visionary founder and host of the One-Minute Apologist, a creative You Tube ministry designed to give quick answers to curious questions. Furthermore, Bobby is the author of the book, "Hell, Rob Bell and What Happens When People Die?" He is a conference speaker, radio guest and spokesperson about today‚s most pressing questions. Bobby and his wife Heather also serve on the Family Life "Weekend to Remember" marriage conference speaking team. Together they fly to major cities where they enjoy challenging and equipping married couples with tools for experiencing a God-centered marriage. Bobby‚s hobbies include: spending time with his wife and two children: Dawson and Haley as well as working out and reading LOTS of books. - Also see www.oneminuteapologist.com
