Welcome Reverend Robin Dillon
Prayer for Pastor Robin, Pastor Laura and Pastor Dan and their families and our congregation as we move through the transitions ahead
It is the Staff Parish Team’s pleasure to share with you that Reverend Robin Dillon has been appointed by Bishop Malone to serve as your next lead pastor. Reverend Dillon is relocating to Cleveland from Westfield Township Ohio where she has served as the Pastor for of the LeRoy United Methodist Church for the past five years. She has also previously served the Oak Chapel UMC, Bethel UMC, and Smithville UMC.
Originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Reverend Dillon earned her bachelor’s degree in Education from East Stroudsburg University. She taught in inner-city Philadelphia for 7 years and then worked for a period in a commercial position as a trainer and equipment educator. A life-long Methodist, she found herself being called into ministry while working and living in Indianapolis.
She attended and graduated from the Methodist Theological School of Ohio and began her professional journey in ministry. During that time she has distinguished herself as a strong leader, creative worship leader, inspiring preacher, and very capable administrator. She currently is the Dean of the Licensing School in the East Ohio Conference, teaching aspiring pastors how to do ministry as they begin their time of service.
Pastor Robin is a single woman. She loves to laugh and learn people’s stories. She exercises by taking “Boxing” classes and anticipates living in the Arthur Avenue parsonage.
Bishop Malone and the Cabinet believe that you will be blessed by the ministry of Reverend Dillon and trust that the coming years will be fruitful, transformational, and joy filled. We believe that she and Pastor Laura Jaissle will create a dynamic and energetic leadership team to serve both the church and the community. She will begin her service on July 1st, and looks forward to serving with great excitement.
