An Interview with Bob Fox, KBF Moderator

by Laura Barclay
Networking, Communications & Interim Missions Associate
 
Laura: What are you most excited about regarding the future of KBF?
 
Bob: I want people to find a Baptist home where they can gather together with like-minded Christians to do ministries and missions. It’s not just about our work but also about our fellowship. One of the most important things a fellowship can provide in a digital age is actual connection and for us to have deep and honest conversations about issues that face the local church.
 
Laura: What do you believe are the biggest challenges in KBF life?
 
Bob: Our biggest challenge is also our biggest opportunity in that our fellowship has a number of diverse churches which forces us to think creatively to overcome differences in geography, size, and theological emphasis in order to make an organization where everyone who is involved is fully engaged.
 
Laura: Did Tara Edwards (past moderator) give you any advice?
 
Bob: Tara told me that she would always be available as I went through the path she went through the previous year, and I found that to be a great encouragement.
 
Laura: Tell me one weird fact about you.
 
Bob:
I started going bald when I was a junior in high school. Some of the nicknames I’ve acquired over the years are Fobert, Foxy Bob, and it’s not unusual for me to go to a meeting and having a name tag reading “Fox Fox.”
 
Laura: Are you a Louisville or UK fan? Keep in mind there is only one right answer.
 
Bob: Both (First, in my heart is UK, and a close second Louisville).
 
Laura: A natural diplomat! Thanks, Bob
