Greg Robbins, Director of Christian Education
Since my youth I have served in local church ministry. Children and their families hold a special place in my heart and I have been blessed to have served in a few churches for a long-term impact on God’s kingdom. I received my BA in children’s & youth ministry from Pacific Christian College (now Hope International University) and have developed a philosophy of striving to reach all generations with the Good News of Jesus Christ. As I enter my fifth year in ministry here at YLUMC, I am so excited about our growing ministries which include our Kids Kingdom Sunday School, our Preschool & Kindergarten program and a Cub Scout & Boy Scout program. I also enjoy working at my part-time job with FedEx and spending time with family. Our family is made up of my wife Julie, two grown children, one adopted youngster, a couple of grandkids, along with a home full of frogs (not real ones) to help us all…F.R.O.G. = Fully Rely On God! I look forward to serving your family and the community around us!!!
