Caring for Pastors & Annual Meeting
Thursday, May 15, 12 PM – 1:30 PM
The Barristers Club, 1114 W Walnut Street, Allentown, PA 18102
Being a pastor is a wonderfully rewarding calling. However the shifting landscape of ministry in today’s world, shrinking budgets, changing demographics, and expectations of a congregation are immensely challenging. All of these issues can leave pastors feeling overwhelmed, overworked, ineffective, insecure, isolated and alone. Together we can relieve some of that stress. The Conference of Churches is planning new and innovative ways to help pastors and congregations. Our guest speaker inaugurates one such opportunity. Join Coaching4Clergy’s J. Val Hastings as he shares ways to care for and equip those called and charged with guiding congregations in their spiritual journeys.

Our speaker will be Robin Smith. Robin’s inspirational music reaches both young and old alike. She is worship leader at Labor of Love USA, in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. She is also a motivational speaker and minister.
Robin sings for local and state politicians at their campaigning events. Annually, she sings for the Pocono Leadership Prayer Breakfast attended by 700 local business men and women including the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court judges, senators and local and state leaders. She’s asked to sing at city wide events including the annual Christmas Tree Lighting in downtown Stroudsburg, fireman’s banquets and special events for the Pocono Medical Center.
Twice a year East Stroudsburg University, Robin’s Alma Mater, hires her to perform for the students at their Late Night Cafe. In June 2012, Robin and her sister, Kimberly, were featured on a two hour film documentary produced by WVIA called “Our Town the Stroudsburg”, where they were interviewed for their local ministry outreaches that have impacted the community. They have also been featured along with East Stroudsburg University, Pocono Medical Center, The Monroe County Historical Society, the Sherman Theater and many others.
Robin has trained since 2010 with Dr. Cate Madill, Voice Specialist & Speech Pathologist of Sydney, Australia. Since 2007, she has ministered weekly in a second chance school, PA Treatment & Healing (grades 6th – 12th) through a program she calls “The Awakening” which dramatizes the Word of God and makes it come to life. In October 2011, Robin was hired to bring “The Awakening” program into a public high school assembly for the first time, which brought a message of purpose to the whole student body grades 9 through 12.
It is Robin’s desire to see lives changed and inspired through her music and ministry. Robin said, “My own life’s experiences, as well as the pain my family’s battled over the years, has given me a heart to bring hope to others. Her favorite Bible verse is Psalm 37:4 – Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
