  • wc hoecke

    WC Hoecke is a converted Yankee from Connecticut but moved to South Carolina as fast as he could. He has lived in Columbia for 34 years.  WC is the co-owner of Furniture Medic and Executive Director of Harmony Christian Community. He and his wife, Catherine, have been married for 29 years and have 3 children: Karl (25), Franklin (23), and Anna (19).

    WC's favorite passage comes from Philippians 3:14, " I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."

    When WC isn't working on furniture or hanging out with his family, he enjoys going on a long hike, sitting in the hunting stand, or taking nice, long naps in his hammock.


  • Bob Wilson

    Bob Wilson was born and raised in Charlotte, NC.  He and his wife Debbie met in Wilmington and have been married since 1979.  They have two adult children and six grandchildren.  They moved to Lexington in 2018.

    Bob has worked at industrial sales for the last 40 years.  Since his salvation, he has also served bi-vocationally in several different capacities.  He finds joy in serving the church through leadership and teaching, trusting one of his favorite verses, "For we are His workmanship, created in Jesus Christ for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." (Ephesians 2:10)

    Bob and Debbie enjoy spending time with their six grandchildren every chance that they get.  It is one of the blessings of moving to Lexington, SC.
