Our Lead Pastor
Derek Robinson - email
I was born in Indiana, raised in Ohio and led to Virginia. I am blessed with my amazing wife, Christy, two great sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law and, my most recent joy, a grandson. I grew up a preacher’s kid attending a church near Cincinnati where my dad served as Youth Minister. After high school, I began doing trade work, beginning as a painter. I transitioned to carpentry where I worked as a journeyman carpenter through the union. Over the years, this led to running my own home repair business.
I began attending Langley in the fall of 2000 and became active in serving and teaching with the youth group. During this time I was blessed to be a part of many youth events, retreats, camps, and mission trips. In growing under some great men of God, I was ordained as minister in the fall of 2009, after which I began serving as Langley’s full-time Youth Minister. Through the years at LCC, I was also blessed to serve as a deacon and an Elder. In the fall of 2015, I transitioned to the role of Lead Minister for Langley.
It is a tremendous blessing to grow and serve our LORD with His Family here at Langley Christian Church.
Our Associate Pastor
I was born and raised in Michigan to a family of five having both an older and younger sister. We were a religious home, but I did not come to know the Lord until I was in High School. My friends and I would spend hours in the evenings discussing our views of Scripture and through the course of this time, the voice of our Father broke through by His Word.
I heard his voice, was baptized, and moved off to college as a new believer with no experience or knowledge of what it means to be a disciple of Christ. I walked in the world following what it advised in a career, education, and lifestyle.
In my junior year of college, I joined the Navy, breezed through the nuclear power training pipeline, and along the way met my wonderful wife Dawn. We were married and the Navy sent us both to Hawaii where the Lord blessed us with our daughter Dena.
This was a time of renewal for us and we moved to New York, growing in our walk with the Lord. We then moved to San Diego where I recognized my calling as a teacher and minister. I pursued a formal education at Liberty University, graduating in 2017 with a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies. Understanding the Lord’s call to ministry I was ordained the same year and re-enrolled to complete a Master of Divinity also with Liberty while serving as the Associate Pastor at Langley Christian Church.
Now that my family and I are retired from active duty with the Navy, we look forward to continuing to serve Him and pray for the highest blessings upon all who He places in our path.
