Hi, I'm Pastor Roy Robbins and it is my pleasure to serve at Christ Lutheran Church in Chino. I am a "late career" pastor, but have always felt God's call to the ministry, even from an early age. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 1980 with a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology and worked at Hughes Aircraft Company for 12 years after my graduation. After taking a voluntary lay-off from HAC, I opened a used bookstore in Costa Mesa, California. I also owned another used bookstore in Garden Grove. In 2009, I started to become involved in lay ministry at Radiant Church and was urged to enter seminary by my mentor, Pastor Jeremey King. I was ordained at CLC on July 30th, 2016 and graduated from The Master's Institute in White Bear Lake, MN in May of 2017.
I have been married to my wife, Jeanine, for 39 years, and we have two children and five grandchildren. Jeanine and I love our new family at Christ Lutheran Church and look forward to what the Lord has in store for us and the community of Chino!
