Introducing Dr. Chris Robinson

We would like to formally announce that Dr. Chris Robinson of Signal Mountain will come on board as an adjunct professor to the Covenant College Sociology Department.

Dr. Robinson has a Masters of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary. He has worked as a minister to singles, youth, and families in Georgia, South Carolina, and Texas over a number of years while working towards a doctorate in Sociology from the University of South Carolina, graduating in 2007. He has been the Associate Pastor of Youth and Families at Signal Mountain Presbyterian Church for the last 8 years.

He and his wife, Lauren, and two daughters, Lillian and Marilee, love to spend time on the mountain trails, biking, walking the dog, and running. Dr. Robinson considers himself a "pretty simple guy" with a love for the church and family. When asked about some particulars of his upcoming position here at Covenant, he answered, "I don't know if I'll have an office, but I have a minivan. Her name is Betty." Dr. Robinson plans to teach Sociology of Missions, which many students have expressed special interest. He also plans to teach a course on Adolescence.

Welcome to our department, Dr. Robinson! We hope you'll enjoy teaching at Covenant as much as we are sure to enjoy your classes.
