The New Testament Baptist Church of Butler, Pennsylvania

Faith & Family Weekend of Learning with Bob & Jo Beth Hooker
On November 8, 1975, while sitting in his dorm room at Memphis State University, Robert Hooker realized he was miserable deep inside. He really didn’t have anything for which to live. He had seen several of his friends die while in high school and college, and knew that he too would face death someday. Robert’s heart was in turmoil as he picked up a small Bible, and started to read. God’s Word was foreign to Robert, and it was hard for him to understand; just as he was about to close the Bible, he spotted some verses in the back of the Book. After reading these verses, he understood that he was a sinner, and deserved to go to a place called Hell. Robert knelt beside his bed, and asked Jesus Christ to save him and give him eternal life. Robert realized for the first time that Jesus Christ was truly the Son of God, and had lived a spotless life. He realized Jesus died on the Cross, was buried, and rose from the grave, just so he could have eternal life. Robert graduated with a BA in Criminal Justice from Memphis State, and went on to work at Trinity Baptist Church in Collierville, Tennessee as the Youth Pastor. While attending this church, God called Robert to preach, and he, his wife and two daughters moved to Indiana to attend Hyles-Anderson College in January of 1982. Robert graduated from HylesAnderson College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pastoral Theology in May of 1985. Later, Robert received his Masters in Pastoral Theology. Jo Beth has been counseling and working with women for over 25 years. However, the Hookers’ greatest assets, and the validation of the principles God has taught them rests primarily in the on-going lives and ministries of their six married daughters who love us, love the Lord, whose husbands are all preachers, and who are also teaching and rearing their families for Christ. They don’t presume to be experts, but they do have thirty years of experience in the field of counseling on the home and family. Their goal is to inspire, encourage, and help individuals regardless of where they are in their spiritual growth.
