Robert Nolen

Youth Pastor

I have been blessed to have been called back to FBC Columbia in 2015, having served here from 2008 to 2011 before going to serve with Global Youth Ministry. I have been active in Student Ministry for over 16 years and it has been an amazing journey seeing God work in the lives of young people.
I have been married to my wife Dee Ann (‘Deedie”) for almost 34 years (we’ve been dating for almost 37). We have two beautiful daughters, one son-in-law, and one beautiful granddaughter.
My interests include …
Sports …. If it has a ball …. I like it. I like watching sports, playing sports, coaching sports. I also enjoy the outdoors …. camping, fishing, hunting, and just being in nature. I also have a heart for local and country wide mission’s opportunities.
My goal in life is to be better today than I was yesterday. Better as a husband, father, grandfather, friend, minister, teacher, and servant of my Lord Jesus Christ.
I look forward to serving with you here at FBC Columbia.


WIRED exists to unite local churches from throughout the Wiregrass area so that we can serve those in our community who are less fortunate and are in need. Through this, we can show our community how beautiful the united body of Christ is as we work together to be His hands and feet throughout the Wiregrass area. Whether it is through teaching students how to serve at the various ministry sites during the week of WIRED or during our Bible study and corporate worship services, students and adults alike are discipled throughout the week so that they can have a better understanding of who God is, how He has called them to live, and what His purposes are for their lives.


Each Member Attending the full week of Wired will be placed in one of our many Ministry Team Opportunites and serve there the entire week of Wired. Contact Robert for more information.
