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 had our own 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, 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 20 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 forgave my many sins, taught me many difficult lessons, blessed me with many miracles, and gave me victory through many personal challenges and heartaches, including:

The Present

In 2012, I quit my university job, started One Candle Ministries, and returned to full-time ministry: singing, speaking, writing stories and books, and doing other things to share the love and power of Jesus Christ with others.

As you can imagine, 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. She's "the unseen candle behind the candle" of One Candle Ministries — working hard to earn our family's only income.

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.
