Jeff Robinson - Christian Ministries Grad

Learning Greek is a lot easier the second time around, according to Christian ministries major Jeffrey Robinson ’06.

Now in his first year of seminary at Westminster Theological Seminary in Glenside, Pa., Jeff really “could go on and on about professors and how important certain classes have been,” including Dr. Jonathan Watt’s challenging Greek course that has made seminary-level study of the language a lot less stressful, he says.

“All the biblical studies, philosophy and sociology classes I took have been important in preparing me for seminary and the ministries I help out with at the church,” says Jeff, who is also an intern at Faith Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Del. “In so many ways my classes were like launching pads—they may not have taught me everything there was to know about a subject, but they got me started in thinking about all kinds of things.”

Pursuing a master of divinity degree with a concentration in general studies, Jeff is exploring options in Westminster’s missions, urban missions and counseling programs as well as the traditional pastoral ministry program.

“I think, most simply stated, my passion is for understanding God and His world and how to make His love more known to His world,” Jeff says. “I don’t know where the Lord is leading me, but I’m glad He has brought me to where I am right now.”
