Bob Berry, a graduate of Johnson Bible College and Kentucky Christian University, ministered at Hempfield from November 1970 to February 1976. The church grew during this time and established a Christian Kindergarten, a bus ministry, a radio ministry and a youth “Sing-Out Choir”. The church raised the funds to build the Fellowship Hall and classrooms and completed the construction during his ministry. In addition to the growth of the congregation, numerous young people were recruited for ministry and Christian colleges.
Bob has had ministries in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Indiana, Kansas and Tennessee. Bob and Donna Sue have two children and six grand-children. Following 27 Year Ministry at Seymour, Tennessee, they retired from full-time ministry and served three churches in KY and TN as interim minister. They established Itty Bitty Seed Ministries, Inc. and lead groups to sow seeds for Christ around the world. They have taken groups to Haiti, Colombia, Brazil, Papua New Guinea, Nicaragua and Uganda.
