Dr. Robbins was born to tenant farmers in rural Richmond County, NC in 1942. Sports claimed his attention in Ellerbe High School but a salvation experience when he was a senior drastically changed his focus and direction. At Campbell University in NC he became a "ministerial"  student   immediately and when he transferred to Samford University, Birmingham he preached on weekends all over AL and was called to pastor Enon Baptist Church near Centreville to begin his senior year. After graduation he served with the Home Mission Board in OK and entered Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ft. Worth, TX in the Fall. Gatlin Baptist Church, Duncan, OK had called him during the summer, so he began to pastor there in Sept.1964. 

The next June he married Ginnie Page, whom he had met at Campbell, in NC. She went north to finish college at Chickasha, OK while he went south to seminary in TX. Ginnie graduated from OCLA in 1967 as Jack graduated from SWBTS. They were called to Kingston Baptist, on the TX border and began their family, and Jack started his doctorate. After moving to Velma, OK Jack completed his doctorate and a second son was born. In 1974 the Portland Avenue Baptist Church called them. After 4 years First Baptist Sulphur Springs invited them to TX.  Two daughters were born in Sulphur Springs. Jack always felt a call beyond the local church into the community and on into the world but never sensed God wanted him on the field full time.. 

In 1981 he resigned First Baptist and moved to Raleigh, NC to begin a missionary organization called LOVEM Ministries, Leaders Organized in a Venture  of Evangelism and Missions. Out of that work grew a church plant in North Raleigh, Open Door Baptist Church, which has since become a hub for church planting from MA to Chicago,  AZ  and FL, instrumental in planting more than 60 new churches.

Jack served as an adjunct professor at Southeastern Baptist Seminary in nearby Wake Forest during that time.

In 1992 Jack returned to pastor the Immanuel Baptist Church in Duncan, OK. After 12 years he and Ginnie were appointed as NAMB missionaries to north central Indiana to be the Director of Missions for the Wabash Valley Baptist Association, overseeing 24 churches in 12 counties. After turning 65 Jack decided to return to the pastorate at Berryhill Baptist Church in Tulsa, OK  in 2004 and to pursue the vision God was giving him concerning our nation and its role in the world.

Dr. Robbins has traveled in all 50 states, Canada, Brazil, India, Honduras, Mexico, Pakistan, Poland, Austira. Israel, North Korea and China, Qatar, Uganda, Kenya and others with an urgent burden to spread the good news of our Savior. Jack is convinced that the US holds a unique responsibility to stay faithful and impact the world for Kingdom Good. 

All the Robbins children are active and strategically involved in gospel ministry.  Nine grandchildren are following in their steps.
