Pastor Roy K. Robbins

   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!

Linnea Pierson

   Linnea Pierson was born in Delano, Minnesota into a Lutheran Swedish immigrant family. She spent the first four years of her life on her family's dairy farm in Hennepin County, Minnesota. In December 1954, just one month after her fourth birthday, her father died of a heart attack. Her mother decided to relocate to California, and in July of 1954 they moved to the city of Montebello, where they attended the First Lutheran Church and later Shepard of the Hills in Whittier where she was confirmed.

   During Her years of working as a Decurion manager and at Pacific Theatres all over the western states and Hawaii, she attended many churches on Sundays.

   The year before retiring she was 'church shopping' and visited Christ Lutheran Church in Chino and joined a few months later. Then one Sunday, Phyllis, a member of the church, asked what she was doing on the following Tuesday, and the next thing she knew, she was on the Board of the Preschool.

   Trusting in God, smiling, and doing the right things are the approaches she takes each day!
