Our interim pastor is the Rev. Sarah Robbins. Sarah is a graduate of Westminster College and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where she earned a Masters of Divinity and a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.
Upon graduation from seminary, she served in a variety of pastoral roles for Dormont Presbyterian Church from 2010 to 2015. During her time there, she aided the congregation in their difficult decision to merge with nearby Wallace Memorial PC to become Unity Presbyterian Church.
After her time there, Sarah worked as a pulpit supply minister until she was called to be the interim pastor at Cross Roads Presbyterian Church in Monroeville. She served in that role from 2018 to 2020.
Sarah has also worked for Pittsburgh Presbytery by serving on its Committee of Ministry from 2013 to 2019, and co-founding the Unglued Church Project, a discernment program for congregations, with Rev. Susan Rothenberg. In her work with that project, she has also consulted with congregations in the Presbytery of Lake Erie (2018-2019) and the New Castle Presbytery (2019-2020).
Sarah is married to Rev. Ben Robbins, who is serving as the pastor / head of staff at Northmont Presbyterian Church. She, Ben, and their 5-year old son Liam live in Edgewood. In their down time, they enjoy exploring parks, kayaking, trying new recipes, and traveling.
