Welcome! I am Pastor William “Pistol” Robinson. I am the senior pastor at St. Stephens UMC. I started my appointment at this church on July 1, 2021. My last clergy appointment was at Cumming First UMC in Cumming, GA. I was on staff there from Aug 2015 to June 2020 while I was in seminary and appointed as an associate pastor. I just transferred into the Central Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. My wife, Amanda Robinson (also known as “Andy”), and I moved to Texas to be near our two grown children – Lauren Livingston and Will Robinson, and our son-in-law Taylor Livingston. My wife and I have been married for 35 years.
My mother Mary Robinson has also moved to Texas to be near the family. Another big reason to move to Texas was for the birth of our first grandchild who was born within a week after I arrived! We have two dogs – Savannah who is a German Rottweiler and Lewis who is a rescue dog with lots of personality.
I have had two other professions prior to becoming a minister in United Methodist denomination. I was a private practice attorney in a previous life, and I retired from active duty as a Lieutenant Colonel from the United States Army in 2015. This is a snapshot of my life story so far. I am eager to see where God is taking me and where he is taking you as part of St. Stephen UMC.
