  • Robin Jennings

    children's ministry director

    Robin is excited to be serving as our Children’s Ministry Director. She has spent many years teaching in private schools and as an administrator. Her gifts of administration and classroom instruction have drawn her to serve the children of Bethany. Robin views Children’s Ministry not as babysitting or entertainment for kids, but as a mission to reach the souls of children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is an opportunity to combat daily the lies of Satan with the truth of God’s Word and to help kids make the faith their own. She desires to come alongside parents as they teach the Gospel daily in the home to their own families. Robin has a Bachelors in Liberal Studies, a teaching credential, and a Masters Degree in Classroom Instruction from Biola University. She is the mother of three children and has been married to Pastor Jeff for 13 years. She loves reading, good black tea, genealogy, and traveling with her family.
