Welcome back! I'm so happy to have you here. I'm Pastor Robinson. I pastor Bible Way Church in the beautiful city of Sierra Vista, Arizona.
We're continuing our blog series, "Learn About Bible Way and Our Leaders!" and this is week 6. I am going to share my professional and ministerial background with you.
Professionally, I faithfully served 23 years in the US Army and retired honorably on October 31, 1990. I was certified as a classroom instructor for basic electronic training for soldiers at Fort Jackson, SC. I graduated from the nine-week Correctional Officers Training Academy (COTA) for corrections officers on September 13, 2013 in Tucson, Arizona. I was certified as a Training Officer for staff and employees for the Arizona Department of Corrections, Douglas, AZ .
My ministerial background is robust and for that I am grateful!
I became a member of Bible Way Church Atlas Road, obeyed the gospel and received the baptism of the Holy Ghost in 1973. I was called into the gospel ministry in Darmstadt, Germany in 1977. I was ordained an Elder in 1985 at the National Convocation of the Bible Way Church of Jesus Christ, Inc., state of Connecticut.
I serve as a leader, pastor and teacher of Bible Way Emmanuel Temple in Sierra Vista, Arizona since 2003. I now serve as a bishop in the LORD's church and am excited about the new opportunities afforded to me to serve both my local church and the Body of Christ universal. I also provide christian and pastoral counseling for church members and citizens of Cochise County, Arizona that are experiencing difficult marital and family relationships.
The church mission of Bible Way Emmanuel Temple is to "Build Christian relationships and promote individual spiritual growth through excellence in Christian ministry." Because of this mandate, Bible Way Emmanuel Temple provides a quiet meeting place for community addiction therapy group meetings. We are thankful that we can service Cochise County in this way and provide a solution to an issue that affects us and our neighbors.
What are some ways that Bible Way can help YOU build relationships and promote YOUR spiritual growth?
And I want to stretch you...
It's the pastor in me; I can't help it...
What are some ways that YOU can help SOMEONE ELSE build relationships and promote their spiritual growth?

I'm interested in learning your point of view on this great Kingdom of God mandate to BUILD RELATIONSHIPS AND PROMOTE SPIRITUAL GROWTH THROUGH EXCELLENCE IN CHRISTIAN MINISTRY. Join us at Bible Way Church soon. I'd love to share and exchange more with you as we worship Our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ!
Go into this New Year in the peace, grace and love of Jesus Christ Our LORD.
Happy New Year!
Words of wisdom to live by from our Senior Leader, Bishop Earnest E. Robinson, Sr. and other guest writers.
