Robert Sheffer

We have 3 children – Kylie, Chloe and Katelyn.  I graduated from Lamar High School and Midwestern State University. I began my career in law enforcement in 1989 where I have served locally as well as with the U.S. Government. My hobbies are hunting, shooting, motorcycles and spending time with my family. My favorite bible verse is Proverbs 3:5-6 – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” My favorite Christian song is “Amazing Grace”.

I married by high school sweetheart, Melissa, in April of 1994. We have been blessed with 3 wonderful children: Emma, Faith, and Samuel. I am the pharmacy manager at HEB Pharmacy in Waxahachie. As well as being a deacon, I get to work with the children’s ministry. My favorite verses (for now) are Ephesians 2:8-10 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -and this not from yourselves, it is a gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” My favorite song is “In Christ Alone”.
