About Pastor Robby
Robby Greene began his ministry at Lavon Drive in 1997 as a pastoral intern, eventually moving into the role of Children's and Bus Pastor where he served the majority of his tenure. For the last several years he served as Assistant Pastor. Upon the retirement of Dr. Gary Coleman, who pastored the church for nearly 50 years, Pastor Robby became the Interim Senior Pastor and in October of 2014 was elected as the new Senior Pastor of the church. Pastor Robby and his wife Heather have been married since 1998. Heather teaches preschool Sunday School, serves on the children’s ministry administrative staff, and teaches third grade at Garland Christian Academy. The Greenes have two children, Matt and Julia, who both attend Garland Christian Academy. In his spare time, Pastor Robby enjoys landscaping, model railroading, riding his motorcycle and dining out with his family.
What are the worship services like?
Our desire is that each service at Lavon Drive is an authentic experience of worship where you have the opportunity to commune with God in the
company of other Christians and walk away having gleaned life-changing principles from God’s Word. Our time of corporate worship begins with
a powerful music set led by our Adult Choir and Orchestra.
Musical selections from many decades underscore our blended approach to music, with majestic hymns set alongside contemporary favorites using
fresh, inspiring orchestrations. Dramas, multimedia, Scripture reading, and musical specials round out the opening segment of the service and
are followed by a relevant, Biblical message from our Senior Pastor or another member of our preaching team. Services run about an hour and
ten minutes in length.
What will my children do?
Sunday AM: Safe and Sound Nursery is provided for both Sunday School and the morning service for infants
through age 3. For children ages 4 through 6th grade, 3D Kids provides an upbeat, relevant teaching
program including lesson time, crafts, activity centers, drama and more. Our volunteer staff has been carefully trained and screened through
background checks. With a low teacher to child ratio, 3D Kids is able to minister to your children through both the Sunday School and Worship
Service. During the Worship Services, teens grades 7-12 are encouraged to sit with their parents or in the teen section of the Gymnasium located
in the front, right section of the Gymnasium.
What should I wear?
From jeans and t-shirts to suits and ties, a full range of fashion is represented every week at Lavon Drive. The Pastors will be in suits, but the average church member will be on the dressy side of business casual, though it’s hardly fair to say that’s the “norm.” Come as you are, and you will be welcomed. It is the Lord who said, “Man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”
