Interview with Robbie Seay
Over the next 9 weeks, we wanted to give you an opportunity to get to know some of our speakers and leaders that you will be hearing from at the Overflow conference on June 17th and 18th. On Tuesdays, we will be posting fun and informative interviews with them on the Overflow blog. Today we wanted you to hear from our amazing worship leader, Robbie Seay.
Robbie Seay is not only the lead of the fantastic Robbie Seay Band, he is also the Campus Pastor and Worship Leader of Bayou City Fellowship - Cypress. We are super excited and honored to have him leading us in worship at Overflow. We checked in with Robbie today to ask him some questions and get his thoughts on life, Bayou City, Overflow!
What is your favorite song on your playlist right now?
My favorite song right now is called “Lion and the Lamb” by Leeland. I love that song! Leeland Mooring wrote it and we have started to sing it here at Bayou City Fellowship. They are a band from Baytown near Houston. I love that they have that Houston toughness about them and that they never moved away from Baytown. They are still here locally.
Tell us a little bit about your family?
Our family is crazy! Liz and I have been married 18 years...notice that I didn’t hesitate to remember how long we have been married. I answered right away! We have five kids from ages 8 to18. It is a beautiful crazy! We are going on vacation soon. Summer is always hit or miss with my travel schedule, so we want this to become an annual tradition to take the crazy out of town for a few days. We love Bayou City Fellowship and our kids are all plugged into different areas of ministry and learning opportunities. It is a whole bunch of crazy, but I love it!
What has been your biggest challenge lately?
I wear four or five hats in my life. My biggest challenge is which hat God wants me to be wearing on any given day. I love that I get to serve as campus pastor and worship leader and in the broader church when I get to travel and lead. I want to serve my family and church well with the gifts that God has given me. I just want to make sure I am serving where He wants me to on any given day. But I really love our church and I am honored to serve in this body of believers.
What are you excited about for Overflow?
I love Overflow! I am excited to be in the room this year. Last year, I helped with set up and just love the heart of Overflow. One of Liz and my dear friends is a single mom, and she is raising 4 amazing kids. She is one of the toughest ladies I know. I want her to be able to take a deep breath and hear from her community. I want her to hear us say…we respect you and we love you. If that is something my church is going to be a part of, then that is a church that I want to be a part of. Single moms are serving in their homes, churches, and workplaces in ways I can’t even understand. I hope they experience a sweet sense of rest and peace spiritually and physically on the days of Overflow. I want them to know that we see them and we support them.
Why do you think it is important for the church to reach out to single moms?
I think it is important to minister to these moms and to recognize their perseverance. We want to provide a place to cheer them on. They all have unique struggles. They are some of the strongest women I know. The church says we want to serve you. We want to take some time to say we see you and we want to link arms with you. It also is the broader mission of the church. We want to serve all people regardless of their struggles. We want to link arms with you and we want the gospel of Jesus to infuse your homes and your lives.
We want to thank Robbie for taking time out of his day to give us a little insight into his world. We are so thankful for all of his gifts and for his willingness to share them with us at Overflow this year!
Check back with us next week for another interview as we draw closer to Overflow 2016. You won’t want to miss it! More information and registration at www.overflowbcf.com.
