Meet our leadership
Reverend Dr. Jeffrey B. Robinson is a pastor, teacher and an anointed evangelist. He has been on assignment as the senior pastor at Juniper Level Missionary Baptist Church since March 2013. While under his watch, Juniper Level has experienced growth spiritually, financially and numerically. In addition, the Rosenwald school, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has been completely renovated and a land acquisition of 30 plus acres of land in Raleigh has been purchased for the new location of Juniper Level Missionary Baptist Church. Prior to being assigned as the senior pastor at Juniper Level, Pastor Robinson was the senior pastor for sixteen years at St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church in Oak City, North Carolina. During that time, the church experienced tremendous growth spiritually, financially, and numerically and because of the growth a new church building was needed.
