Robin Davis is a little lady with a big influence. Fearless as a child, she would stand up to bullies, catch snakes with boys, and swim remote creeks and lakes. At 11 years of age, she led her father, mother, and brother to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Today, Robin is a respected Church leader, spiritual educator, elementary school principal, and motivator of women. Since 2004, she and her husband, Pastor Robbie Davis, have led the Church they grew up in – CELEBRATION CHURCH at Columbia (formerly Long Reach Church of God) – to become a blossoming ministry with over 3,000 members. Robin’s parents are ordained Elders at Celebration to this day
Robbie and Robin met at CELEBRATION CHURCH at Columbia after Robin’s family became members in 1981. They would become high school sweethearts and go on to get married in 1989. Robbie and Robin led the Youth Ministry at their home Church for several years. Hundreds of middle and high school students were a part of the Youth Explosion ministry under their leadership. During this time they established themselves as young and effective kingdom leaders. Using the strength of their youth, the newlyweds assisted their Pastor, Bishop Robert S. Davis, Sr., serving the Church in several areas.
After graduating from Howard University in 1992 Robin joined the team of administrators and teachers who helped start the Celebration Christian Academy (formerly Long Reach Church of God Christian Academy). The school opened in 1992 and Sister Robin was the first kindergarten teacher. In 2011 Robin became the 6th Principal of the Celebration Christian Academy. Under her leadership, the Academy has tripled enrollment and is currently at full capacity. She has led the Academy, for the first time in its history, to become a fully self-sufficient operation – no longer depending on the Church’s financial subsidy to survive. She has also been the catalyst for the explosive growth of the Church’s summer camp program (CHAMP CAMP). The camp has grown from 30 to 200 campers.
Robbie and Robin have disciplined hundreds of engaged and dating couples through the “Before You Say I Do” class they have been teaching together since 1996. As a leader of women, Robin facilitates Bible studies, leads conferences and retreats, and personally disciples many. Her no-nonsense approach to getting things done is helping many to win in life on the foundation of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Robbie and Robin have seven children – Rhema, Rhesa, Robert III, Rhoyal, Robinson, Rheign and Rhisen.
