Delroy Robinson grew up in the church and at the age of thirteen, he devoted his life to Christ. Early on, Delroy became active in the church and grew in a solid foundation of faith and Biblical teaching. Though he was sheltered from “worldly” ways and did not experience many of the things his peers were involved in, Delroy faced other challenges that come with being saved at an early age. During high school, Delroy learned to defend his Christian beliefs. “There were times that I was criticized and called names, but I was able to survive the temptations I was faced with because I relied on God’s strength and Spirit,” Delroy said.
Delroy became a youth pastor and spent many years serving young people in his church. But, twice in his life, he brushed death’s fingertips and was spared.
The first time, Delroy was visiting his friend’s apartment when a colleague pulled out a gun and demanded a shoot-out. Delroy, afraid of what might happen to him, cried out to God. “I remember telling the Lord that if he could just spare me, I would do more work for him,” he recalls. Miraculously, the situation was resolved with no shots fired and no one hurt.
Then, the next year, Delroy faced the terrifying possibility of death again. Late at night, he was sitting by his broken down car waiting for help when suddenly police arrived and two officers came towards Delroy with guns pointing right at him. The officers had mistaken him for someone else and once again God protected him from danger.
