Central Bible College
Felicia Robinson
Vital training for powerful ministry

Felicia Robinson thought she had enough street smarts growing up in Pontiac, Mich., outside Detroit to enter the ministry without furthering her education beyond high school.

“I was adamant about not going to college,” Robinson says. “I didn’t figure I needed training for the ministry.”

Then came an eye-opening three-month internship in Haiti. Robinson says the hands-on intensive outreach, plus some nudging from the Lord, convinced her she needed a college degree.

Robinson, 23, is a sophomore majoring in pastoral counseling at Central Bible College in Springfield, Mo. Now she not only has plans to graduate from CBC, but Assemblies of God Theological Seminary as well. Afterward she has other ambitious goals: open a counseling center for women, marry a pastor and become a worship leader.

This school year, Robinson and her 19-year-old brother, Mangia, hope to participate in a CBC traveling evangelism worship team. Robinson is in the choir of Revival Tabernacle Assembly of God, her home church in Highland Park, Mich.

For three months during summer break, Robinson helped counsel 13 women residents at Teen Challenge in Long Island, N.Y. She plans on returning there next summer.

The CBC experience agrees with Robinson, who played on the basketball team during her first year. “The professors are great and the whole campus life helped me grow in several areas,” she says. “I’m excited about the future.”
