When I met Bobby, he was traveling with a group known as Mid-South Boys. When they came off the road, he continued to serve the church in many areas. Recently, we have had Bobby bring his music ministry as often as we can get him to Cornerstone Church, and his ministry has been wonderfully received and blessed. I shared with him via email just a few days ago that there is an obvious difference in the anointing that is on his music at this point in his life.
I would highly recommend the anointed ministry of Bobby Bowen for your church, and his family is a wonderful example of godliness.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to give me a call at 615.865.6655.
Sincerely in Christ,
Our congregation has been blessed many times by their ministry and as soon as I can, will have them back again. I obviously don't travel with them but have had numerous conversations, listened and watched them conduct themselves before and after service, and shared meals with their family. Their children are well mannered in and outside of church and Bobby and Becky are real down to earth God fearing Christians who are not singing for their own glory but for the glory of The Lord. They have never mandated a certain offering and have been more than humble in their presentation of the gospel through their music ministry. Yes, they travel as opposed to music ministers who go to the same church week in and week out and sing or do their best to "work up" a spirit before the pastor is called forward. The glaring differences are that those who are paid do not have travel expenses to meet every week and I've never witnessed or heard of The Bowen Family trying to whip up the congregation.
Many churches invite evangelists in to preach and think nothing of providing hotel rooms, meals, fuel or airplane tickets, and a nice offering. Well, I've heard more gospel and seen more compassion and character in the Bowen family than some evangelists that churches book each year religiously.

It is my privilege to recommend Bro. Bobby Bowen and his dear family to you and your congregation. God has gifted this entire family with musical talent, but even more is the presence of His Spirit upon their lives and ministry. We laughed, we cried, we rejoiced, and we felt the Lord’s presence deeply in all that was done in the worship service. This is truly a family ministry and it will bless every generation in your congregation. From the oldest (90) to the youngest (7) the unanimous response was, “This was absolutely wonderful. They are truly a blessing and his children are unbelievable!” Bro. Bobby was here on May 1st and our folks are already asking when we can have them back. You will not be disappointed; but greater than that, you will be blessed and thankful you had them come.
In Christ by grace,

I have known Bobby Bowen all this life since I am his elder cousin, Rick. When we were much younger we use to play together at family reunions and had quite a friendship.
When Bobby was a kid he was always a good singer. However his voice was much higher then. Sometimes when one’s voice changes there is a scary trepidation that grips you saying, “Will I still be able to sing as well?” In Bobby’s case he just kept on going and even developed his voice as well as his ability to play the guitar and bass. He was one of the core members of any singing group he was a part of.
Bobby hasn’t strayed from his Christian upbringing. He developed and maintained a walk with the Lord at a young age. When he married, he chose a wife that was a strong Christian and so it follows that his family is a strong unit and has a POWERFUL testimony!
I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Bobby’s ministry to your church or community. He will come and minister in song in an anointed yet relaxed way that encourages everyone present to simply allow God’s Spirit to minister according to the need and the time. If you want a refreshing spiritual experience have Bobby come as soon as you get the chance. For more information please feel free to call 765-289-1650.

What a great concert! The people here in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area are still talking about the great vocal talent of Bobby Bowen and that they heard him live.
God has blessed Bobby not only with desire but with the gift and talent to bring peace and enjoyment to the hearts and souls of those who are fortunate to experience his music and song in concert. A great musical witness for our Lord.
What fun! I really enjoyed Bobby's humor and wit. Glad to be able to call him friend and Brother in Christ. I still think that Ricky Scaggs (who is my second favorite vocalist) should get together with Bobby Bowen (my favorite vocalist) and work on a project together. I'd be first in line to buy it.
Thanks again Bobby. May God continue to bless you and your lovely wife and children. I will continue to keep you in prayer before our Great God.
