Passion for God and compassion for people are a few words that describe Bobigene Pack, affectionately known as Miss Bobbi, the Founder and President of Love in Action Outreach Ministries, Inc., the umbrella organization under which the “House of Joy” functions.
She is a Minister and Writer whose mission to serve people was realized through the 26-bed assisted Living facility – New Beginnings Assisted Living – that she owned and managed in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for fifteen years. The business was monitored on a regular basis, as required by the State of North Carolina, the Health Department, the Fire Department, the Department of Human Resources, the Local Social Services Department and the Ombudsman Committee. She also worked with and was frequently monitored by the assisted living pharmacist and nurse consultant.
Bobigene moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma, and in obedience to God’s call she started a series of Motivational seminars, “Bringing Success to the Surface,” designed to discover and release the God-given talents in each person. She is the founder of a unique radio program, “Your Dreams Can Come True” which worship God through poetry and prose. In 1998, Bobigene published a collection of poems entitled, “God Made Me Beautiful From the Inside Out” which was birthed out of her own life experiences.
God moved mightily upon her heart, and she started a once-a-month birthday party for inner city children at two of the Salvation Army’s inner city Child Development Centers in North Tulsa, Oklahoma. In addition to this responsibility, The Salvation Army blessed her with the opportunity to head up a special community outreach program for shut-in seniors based upon her extensive rest home experience.
Bobigene attended Forsyth Tech in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the University of South Carolina at Aiken, and graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, located near Tulsa before moving to Atlanta, Georgia. She is the mother of three sons; Kwind, Emory and Virgil (the latter two are deceased).
