Jeff Robinson is the Senior Pastor here at First Baptist Hammond. He is the lead preacher/teacher and seeks to base his messages on a responsible interpretation of the Bible while relating Scriptures to everyday experiences in order to encourage faithfulness with regards to Christian beliefs and practices. He also provides counselling and upon request, conducts baby dedications, marriages, and funeral services.

Pastor Jeff is married to Melissa Robinson, our Worship Leader, and has three biological children, Corrinn, Christa and Davis. Corrinn is working with her husband, Chase Sims, where they serve at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, TX. Christa is working on her master's degree at Stephen F. Austin State University and working as a teaching assistant there. Davis, a gifted worship leader himself following in his mother's footsteps, is pursuing a degree at East Texas Baptist University where he plays basketball.

Previously, Pastor Jeff served the congregation of Southside Baptist Church in Lufkin, TX from 1994 until 2015. Upon assuming this role at that struggling congregation, God began a miraculous resurrection of the church and it soon became a place of unity among the saints and refuge for the spiritually wounded. During his tenure there, conversions, congregational ministries, community outreach endeavors, and world mission activities grew exponentially. Church attendance increased twentyfold under his leadership. His love for Jesus Christ and the people of God have led him to speak and preach in many churches, and conferences around the area.

Prior to that, Jeff served as a youth minister and education minister in churches in Louisiana and Texas

Missy leads us in worship! She has been worshipping Jesus as a believer since she was nine years old. As a faithful follower of Christ, she sees her task more as "lead worshipper" than worship leader. Her heart is to bring people to throne room of grace during corporate worship as she enters that place herself.

She has been serving alongside her husband, Pastor Jeff, for 32 years. She has held the official title of Worship Leader for the last 23 years. She comes from a family of musicians that use their talents to honor God. Her father and two of her uncles served in Southern Baptist Churches as Music Ministers for decades.

When not working on music ministry, Missy devotes most of her time to her family. She remains very close to her grown children, including several unofficially adopted children.
