Carl Robinson, Senior Pastor

Carl Eugene Robinson was born, raised and educated in the small farming community of Bremen, Indiana, located just south of South Bend. He graduated cum laude from Indiana University, with majors in philosophy and political science, and Eden Theological Seminary, which is located in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. Carl was ordained into the Christian ministry on May 31, 1987. He has served three congregations: Zion UCC, Junction City, Kansas, 1987 through 1992; Christ Church UCC, Evansville, Indiana, from 1993-2000, and has been Sr. Pastor here at Shiloh Church UCC since August of 2000.

Carl is married to Lisa Jean (Crockett), a distant descendant of the famous frontiersman. Lisa was serving as nursery coordinator and youth sponsor at her home church, St. Johnís UCC, Wood River, Illinois, when Carl was selected as that congregationís student pastor. The congregation, and particularly its youth, helped Carl and Lisa find and fall in love with one another. They were married on January 18, 1986. Carl and Lisa have a daughter, Casey Jane, who has graduated from Northmont High School and Sinclair Community College, is completing her education at Wright State University, while working as a Sign Language Interpreter for Springfield City Schools. Casey serves as ASL interpreter every other Sunday for Shilohís 10:25 service and worship leader for the congregationís 7:00 p.m. Discovery Time contemporary service. Lisa and Casey are invaluable in their support of Carlís ministry to, with, and through Shiloh Church. 

Carlís major interests include reading (particularly psychological thrillers, espionage novels, and mysteries), studying and promoting the Progressive Church movement, assisting local churches to grow into the emergent church, through consultation and guidance, golf, home improvement projects, and hunny-doís. 

Feel free to email Carl if you would like to know more about his background, education, family, or interests. If you would like to make arrangements for him to speak to or consult with your congregation or organization, please call or email Shiloh Church.
