Lyle is the Area Director for South Georgia Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Lyle and his family - Angela (wife of 24 years), Abigail (17) and Aaron (14) - make their home in Thomasville, GA. Lyle's love for Jesus (and others) is contagious. When he is not out sharing the truths from Scripture, you can find him doing something with graphic design, mowing grass, running, watching his son play football, traveling to some foreign country, hanging out at Universal Studios and/or eating a piece of cheesecake. He is excited and looks forward to being with, and meeting, each of you.



With honest lyrics and heartfelt performances, 4th Point is a Chicago-area, high-energy band made up of best friends who believe in what they do. Lead singer Matt Ellis started leading worship at the young age of 13 and is currently the worship leader at Lamplighter Bible Church in Streamwood, IL. Early on, the band started as a youth worship band at a local church’s weekly youth group. From this experience stemmed a new passion for the band to take their message beyond the walls of their own church. 4th Point wants to use their God-given talents to serve others and to serve Him, striving to make an impact by spreading their message of hope and inspiration.

Bobby Lingo is a Speaker and Disciple maker that has been passionate about Jesus ever since middle school when his bus driver, Polly McDuffy, told him that God wanted to have a Real, Authentic, and Living relationship with him and that God can speak ,through His word, if we will quiet our hearts and listen. As a middle schooler he went home, opened his bible, and prayed “God, My bus driver said you could talk, I want to hear whatever you have to say”. That small prayer has changed his life forever.

Since he was 18 years old, he has been serving God and investing in others (students in particular). He has served in areas of Ministry for over 24 years. Along the way he has served as a Nashville recording (hip hop) artist as well as a speaker to students. Beyond the stage Bobby has helped established the youth and college advocacy arm for Compassion International, one of the Nations largest Christian Non profits, where he had the chance to establish ministry opportunities that empower students to make a massive impact for children around the world. Most Recently he has served as the missions, teaching and student pastor at TheRoad@Chapel Hills in Colorado Springs.

These days he is serving as touring speaker, traveling with such artist as David Crowder and Jordan Feliz. After 24 years in ministry he still has a heart for speaking into the lives of students, just like his bus driver did for him.

Bobby and his wife of 17 years, lives in Nashville Tn.with their three children.



The MV Worship band seeks to live lives of worship as a unified entity worshipping with one heart, one mission, and one vision. They desire to usher others into the life changing presence of God, to steward our gifts and talents which God has given us, and to lift high the mission and vision that Jesus has laid out for our church and the world with continual excellence and creativity.
