Pastor John Robbins was raised in suburban New Jersey and Massachusetts. A graduate of Hobart College in upstate New York, he worked extensively in the editing, design, and production of college textbooks. Following his call to pastoral ministry, he completed his theological work at the United Methodist Course of Study School of Ohio’s extension in rural West Virginia. He has pastored churches in Holbrook, Saugus, Stoneham, Weymouth, and Winthrop, all in Massachusetts, as well as in corinth, Maine. He also has worked with special-needs adults in a group home setting. He currently serves on the Conference Disabilities Committee and the Board of Ordained Ministry, where he co-chairs the Licensed Local Pastors Committee.
John’s desire is that the church gather for worship in the face of God’s transforming presence, encourage and build one another up as disciples, and go forth as Christ’s ambassadors equipped by the spirit to engage the world for the glory of God and eternal kingdom.
John and his wife, Roberta are the parents of three girls.
