On Sunday, North Philadelphia experienced a seismic celebration of high praise and worship during the 6th Pastoral Anniversary celebration for the Rev. Michael Robinson, senior pastor of Greater Enon Missionary Baptist Church located at 1854 North 22nd Street.

The guest preacher for this anniversary celebration was the Rev. Richard Dent, senior pastor of First African Baptist Church in Sharon Hill. Dent’s acclaimed Voices of Joy Choir, led by director Minister Kenneth Wilson, performed gospel songs from old and contemporary genres that ushered the capacity audience into an atmosphere of high praise!

I cannot articulate how overwhelmed and overjoyed I am about the outburst of love shown to me and my family today. Rev. Dent and his choir gave me and my church one of our greatest worship experiences this year, and for that, I am especially grateful,” said Robinson. “I am blessed to serve such a great congregation at Greater Enon, and today, I’ve been reinvigorated to move forward to serve our church and community with even greater zeal.”

Robinson is a graduate of Cairn University (formerly Philadelphia Biblical University), where he earned his Master of Science degree in Christian Counseling; he earned his Bachelor’s degree from Clarion University in Communications. He serves as a Chaplain for the Philadelphia Police Department, board member of the Philadelphia Baptist Association, board member with the Pennsylvania Eastern Keystone Baptist Association, serves as a panelist with the Philadelphia District Attorney Office’s Youth Aid Panel (a juvenile diversionary program), member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, member of the Society of Human Resources Management, and a recent award recipient of the prestigious Philadelphia Industry Icon Award by the Philadelphia Inquirer Newspaper (2107).

Robinson is happily married with children; his wife Dana Robinson is a middle school educator in Delaware County, and they have two children Matthew and Joy.
