One Candle Ministries

"You Are a Candle in the Darkness."


The Past

My name is Robinson. For almost 5 years, in the late '70s and early '80s, my wife and I were in full-time music ministry. With my 12-string guitar, the two of us performed 427 concerts of my original Christian songs in 26 states, and told how God was working in our lives, for groups as small as 9 people and as large as 3,000 people.

In early 1982, we gave up our ministry so that I could go to college.

pocket watchAfter completing a bachelor's degree, summa cum laude, a master's degree, and the coursework for two different doctorates, I became a popular and successful technology consultant and educator, teaching or training over 3,000 students, instructors, administrators, and employees at seven different colleges and universities, and in several corporations. I also shot photos and videos, and created several Web sites, including my own extensive, educational and inspirational site,, which has gotten over 19 million visits.

In addition, I took several years off to minister to others by empowering, educating, assisting and advocating for hundreds of at-risk children, seniors, and victims of domestic violence, and by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of others.

As a man of faith, I've spent my entire adult life helping others improve both their spiritual and physical lives. Through it all, God was faithful to forgive my many sins, teach me many difficult lessons, bless me with many miracles, and give me victory through many personal challenges and heartaches, including:

The Present

I'm back in full-time Christian ministry: singing, speaking, writing articles and books, and doing all kinds of other things to help change people's lives through the love and power of Jesus Christ.

I have many powerful, moving songs and stories to share. In fact, I've often said that there would be no point to my having gone through hell so many times, except that now I know how to help others get through it.

And, since you're probably wondering — my beautiful bride and I are still very happily married, and she's the executive assistant to the CEO of a non-profit organization. She's "the unseen candle behind the candle" of One Candle Ministries — working hard to earn our family's only income, so that I can minister to people.

The Future

I'd love to minister to your Florida group, whether it's a church, school, civic group, college, hospital, youth group, nursing home, conference, retreat, senior center, charity, special event, community center, coffeehouse, assisted living facility, or even a group of friends gathered at your home. Please don't hesitate to contact me.
