Ever wonder what the Robertson’s are up to post Duck Dynasty? It seems Willie Robertson has taken to the pulpit. He’s using his new found free time to minister at his local church.

We’ve seen the Robertson’s speak to large crowds on many occasions. However, now you can see Willie Robertson speak to a congregation regularly- at his own church in West Monroe. 

Many people assumed that Willie Robertson would head into politics after Duck Dynasty. After all, he was very public about his endorsement for President Trump. He also had an entire Duck Dynasty episode about his run for homeowners’ association president. However, it seems Robertson had a different agenda on the brain–or heart.

He’s headed back to his roots, preaching in front of a congregation. Willie said, “So I’m kind of back in the ministry aspect which is something I started out in. I started in seminary so I was able to do that again.”

The family was criticized for turning a church service into a publicity stunt. However, they never turned anyone away. They reasoned that even if someone was only motivated by pop-culture, at least they’d be exposed to the message along the way. Miss Kay explained, “…when you come here, you’re going to hear the Gospel of Jesus, and you’re going to hear everybody worshiping, praising God. So how can that be bad?”

There were security concerns. At one point police officers guarded the church and controlled crowds during services. However, the family remained an active part of the community, and not much else changed. Missy Robertson still sang in the choir. The kids still all sat together in the pews.

Now Willie Robertson is glad that things have died down because…
