Phil Robinson gained his Bachelor of Education degree from Stranmillis University College in Religious Studies, with a subsidiary in Physical Education and has a Masters of Divinity degree from Union Theological College. While studying for his B.Ed., he had the opportunity to take part in the Erasmus student exchange programme which involved teaching and studying in Copenhagen for five months. He used his spare time to explore his Christian faith in a deeper way and to obtain answers to several questions in his thinking. In particular, although Phil was a convinced young earth creationist, he didn’t really understand the full implications of this nor how to properly defend the biblical account of origins.
When he returned from Denmark, this issue burned in his heart and he knew that he wanted to get involved in teaching other Christians more about this important issue and to use it as a method of evangelism. For example, he has been involved with Ultimate Questions, a ‘Creation Trailer’ ministry in Northern Ireland since 2005. The following year, he founded Creation Outreach Ministries in Northern Ireland, together with eight other keen Christians, and has experience in giving talks and PowerPoint presentations in churches, to youth groups and school classes.
Phil is a qualified coach for several sports (and enjoys playing many of these himself), an experienced Beach Missions team member and was a Youth club leader at his local church. He writes, “I believe that when dealing with youth, or indeed Christians of any age, it is incredibly important to give them a strong biblical worldview and overview so that, unlike myself in my late teens, they will be fully equipped and have the resources to answer their own questions and those put to them by others.”
Phil Robinson worked for CMI-UK as a full time speaker/writer from February to August 2009, principally as the UK’s ‘Darwin Film Coordinator’. He is married and now continues as an associate speaker/writer for CMI in a voluntary capacity.
