Our Pastor



Reverend Robbie Robinson was born in Chicago, IL, and currently resides in Bartlett, IL.  He is blessed with a lovely and dynamic wife, Letitia and two wonderful children — Lania and Royce. A graduate of Western Michigan University, Rev. Robinson, is a CPA and 30+ year finance employee and active Retiree of IBM. 


Rev. Robinson came to know the Lord Jesus Christ at an early age and has been active in church ministry since his youth. He served at New Philadelphia Baptist Church before joining Christian Tabernacle Church (CTC) in 1991.  There, he acknowledged his calling to the ministry in 2001 and preached his trial sermon which was titled “Are you fruitful or just busy?”, based on Genesis 1:28. He was ordained by Rev. Louis Stewart on June 26, 2005, and oversaw the Marriage and Youth Ministries. Rev. Robinson was an Associate Minister at the Second Baptist Church of Elgin, IL under Rev. Dr. Nathaniel Edmond for seven years. In July 2015, Rev. Robinson was installed as Senior Pastor of Christian Tabernacle Church in Roselle, IL.

Pastor Robinson is a co-founder of the R/B Youth Foundation which has served northwest suburban youth and families since 2005 and was a 2014,2019,2020, & 2021 Hanover Township community service recipient.  He has also coached youth basketball in the Chicagoland Christian Sports Conference, in addition to local baseball and soccer teams.  He enjoys golf and music but his passion, however, is using the divine gifts he’s been given to sing, preach and teach God’s Holy word to all who will listen.        

Pastor Robinson believes the universal church is a body of believers and not a building. He believes when we come together, it should be to ‘praise & worship the Lord’.  His favorite scripture is Romans 5:8 “God demonstrated his love for us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”.  He believes his greatest accomplishment is that of giving his life to Christ and allowing the Holy Spirit to use him in the building of God’s Kingdom through preaching and teaching.  While an imperfect man, he strives to live a life where his fruit bears proof of God’s calling, anointing and gifting.  In everything he does, to God be the Glory.
