Pastor Jason Robinson

Jason Robinson was called by God to plant a life - giving, bible obedient church in Ypsilanti, MI. The call to plant Reach Church came to Jason during his work as a Student Advisor in Higher Education. After starting a bible study with a few families, Reach Church was officially launched in September 2014. Pastor Robinson leads Reach Church with the deep conviction that when God raises up a group of believers in the local context, that community should be impacted consistently.

Before planting Reach Church, Pastor Robinson served as Pastor of Christian Education at Canton Christian Fellowship (Canton, MI) with Senior Pastor David Washington Jr., who also was a founding pastor. While serving under Pastor Washington, God began to confirm and solidify the call to church planting. Prior to this assignment, he also was graciously blessed to be called, trained, licensed and ordained at Mt. Zion Baptist Church (Kalamazoo, MI) under Dr. Addis Moore.

The work of Reach Church has been to train and develop people in practical Christian living. The church has focused on teaching and training individuals to impact the community. The church serves the local community through many programs and outreaches including; financial peace university workshops, fitness and nutritional classes, holiday help for families, home-buying workshops, back-to-school giveaways, providing meals for hundreds, clothing giveaways, and scholarships for graduating high school students.

Pastor Robinson who was born and raised in Gary, IN completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Communication at Indiana State University, a Certificate of Biblical Preaching from George Truett Seminary and a Certificate of Theology and Ministry from Princeton Theological Seminary. Pastor Robinson is married to his college sweetheart, Ebony Robinson, who is also highly involved in ministry. Together they have four children; Naima, Tahirah, Solomon and Sanaa.
