Pastor Robert Hoyle

I was born and raised in the foothills of North Carolina.  At the age of 18, I realized my need for a Saviour and called upon the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.  About a year later, I met the young woman who would become my wife.  Her family moved to the area after her father retired from the Air Force.  In 1995, the Lord had called me to preach and we started to pray about what God would have for us. We had joined and served together at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Granite Falls, NC until God brought us to Little River Baptist Church.


I have had the privilege to be the pastor of Little River Baptist Church for the past 16 years.  The Lord has truly blessed my family here.  My wife, Jeannie, and I have been married 29 years and have 8 children.  We love serving here and seeing God work in the lives of those seeking Him.  

My hope is that everyone that visits our church will be encouraged and strengthened in their walk with the Lord.  I would like to invite you to worship with our church family in any of our services.
