Rev. Gail Robins - Organist

The Rev. Gail Robins is a proud native Kansas Jayhawk, but St. Louis has been her home since 1976.  After college, she taught secondary English and private piano until she returned to seminary in 1991.  Since seminary, she and her husband Robin have lived in Tulsa and St. Louis, where she has enjoyed serving in Baptist (Alliance), Methodist, UCC and Presbyterian congregations holding positions as Minister of Music and Associate Pastor.

Gail has three wonderful daughters, three great sons-in-law, and eight amazing grandchildren ranging in age from 17 down to 2.  Gail and Robin recently made the move from their Kirkwood home to an apartment and are loving the freedom and “simpler life” which that affords.  In her free time, she enjoys family time, reading, writing, sewing, cooking and digital work with Photoshop.

Gail looks forward to a long and wonderful time at Grace UMC as they take the next step in their faith journeys.
