We are pleased to announce that last month we officially named Rev. Colin Robeson as our Associate Pastor/Director for Family Life Ministries (FLM) in the Belong + Grow department. After a year of serving as the Interim Director and following a discernment process that was confirmed by Elders, congregants, and Dr. Scott Dudley, we are excited to celebrate this new chapter for FLM.
Over the course of the past year, Colin has led FLM through a season of renewal and growth. In addition to supporting the team’s commitment to children, youth, and families, Colin also developed a strategic plan that outlines FLM’s goals for the next three years, implemented the Child Protection and Abuse Prevention Policy, and led a High School mission trip to Bolivia. It has been a busy and fruitful time for Colin and FLM!
Prior to joining BelPres, Colin served as an Army Chaplain and provided spiritual care to soldiers and their families. In 2008, he joined our staff as a Pastoral Associate in the Prayer + Care department, supporting individuals during times of transition. Colin helped launch and establish Re:New and the School of Ministry in 2011. At the same time, he was named Associate Pastor for the School of Ministry, and since then he has worked tirelessly to care for at-risk youth, guide interns and new pastors as they discern their call, and develop strategies and partnerships to create opportunities for children, youth, and their families.
As Colin continues to engage and lead Family Life Ministries, he looks forward to developing broader experiences for families to engage in mission as early as preschool, implementing ways to better support parents, and greater development of student ministries.
