The congregation reflected on its roots and looked to the future during a two-day anniversary celebration.
Robinson has worked at Chesapeake Conference since 2016.
Sean Robinson will soon be taking up new responsiblities at Hope Channel, where he will act as vice president for marketing and development.
Robinson has served at Chesapeake Conference as the association secretary and director for planned giving and trust services since 2016.
Robinson says he has made “many wonderful memories” during his years at Chesapeake Conference, noting that his “greatest memories are those made with the Chesapeake family who have become my dear friends.” He reports he has greatly enjoyed working with many pastors, churches and schools.
Robinson says he is looking forward to new challenges at Hope Channel, a global television network with almost 80 channels and a subsidiary of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. In particular, Robinson says he is looking forward to “being part of a team tasked with sharing the gospel with people who have yet to hear about Jesus Christ and His deep love for them.”
Conference colleagues said farewell to Robinson during a luncheon at the conference headquarters on Oct. 26.
“It is with mixed feelings that we bid farewell to Elder Robinson as he takes up his new responsibilities at Hope Channel,” says Jerry Lutz, Chesapeake Conference president. “On one hand, he will be greatly missed for the outstanding leadership and administrative care he provided the Chesapeake Association for the past seven years. On the other hand, the Hope Channel will now be the recipient of his considerable professional abilities and skills by which we have been blessed, and have enjoyed, in our conference.”
