I never imagined I would be the pastor of Beaver Street Baptist Church, but I am so glad that I am.  This is the church where my wife, Marla, grew up and where we got married.  At that time, I was an Oklahoma State University engineering student from my hometown of Spiro, Oklahoma.  After we both graduated, I worked in manufacturing as an engineer and maintenance supervisor in Anadarko where God called me to a life of ministry and Bible teaching and preaching.  Soon afterward, I earned my Masters of Divinity at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas.  Following graduation I served as Senior Pastor of Oklahoma churches at Marietta, Norman, Lawton, Mannford and Sapulpa (Associate Pastor).  Along the way, I earned my Doctorate of Ministry at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri.  I also had the privilege of teaching Bible, Religion and Ministry courses for Oklahoma Baptist University (OBU).  At times between churches, I have taught math and science in both public and a private Christian school, and I have worked in aerospace at Flight Safety and Bell Helicopter (in college).  

My life verse is Ezra 7:10.  In describing the reason for God's blessing on his life and ministry, the verse says, "For Ezra set his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances to all Israel."  There is nothing I enjoy more than being able to teach and preach God's Word, and it is exciting to see how God blesses the ministry of His Word.  As far as hobbies, I love sports in general as a fan (especially Notre Dame, OSU, Los Angeles Dodgers) and golfing in particular as a participant.

We have two grown children.  Our daughter, Emily, graduated from OBU, got married to her husband Colten, and they live in Edmond.  Our son, Evan, is a senior-to-be at Tulsa University, looking forward to law school following graduation.

I really believe the best is yet to come.  Marla and I are so happy to be back at Beaver Street Baptist Church.  We would love to have you come visit us.

I have had the privilege to serve in ministry for more than 30 years and I’m so glad that God has opened the door for me to serve here at Beaver Street during this season of ministry. My journey began at FBC Broken Arrow (at it’s original location) when as a young boy I gave my life to Christ despite being a little afraid to “walk the aisle”. I am glad I had the chance to grow up in Broken Arrow and be a part of that community and school. After graduation I went on to Oklahoma State University where my call to ministry was confirmed and my ministry journey began. After graduating with a degree in Business, I moved to Texas to complete a Masters in Religious Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. It was here that I met Mike and Marla for the first time and our friendship began.

During my years in ministry I have served in almost every possible capacity of church life (except WMU director?). From cleaning toilets and changing diapers to leading youth and adults, I have seen church life from many perspectives. I have served churches in Munday (Texas), Muldrow, Muskogee, Norman, and Broken Arrow.

I did not meet my wife Trina until I was serving my first church out of seminary. It was a blind date but we didn’t keep our eyes closed for long. We have five children. Sarah teaches elementary music in Glenpool, Caleb attends OSU, Adam attends TCC (heading to OSU), Aaron is training to be a paramedic/fireman, and Benjamin is a sophomore at BAHS. Trina teaches Special Education (severe/profound) at BAHS and I work as a Family Services Specialist for Oklahoma Department of Human Services.

We are excited to see what God has in store for Beaver Street. If you like singing the best of the old and the best of the new, then Beaver Street is the place for you to come to worship and serve!

Growing up as a Pastor's Kid, I was exposed to many difficult times.  However, God called me to the ministry at 13 and I surrendered to that calling regardless of the experiences that I had grown up with.  After serving at churches in Jenks, Oskaloosa, Iowa, and Kansas City, I am back in Jenks to serve at where I believe God has called me to be.

I am married to the best wife in the world, Madison Robinson, and have one baby girl, Harper.  They are the best.

I graduated from Jenks High School, and I was part of two football state championship teams, and one track state championship.  After this, I went to William Penn University to participate in college football and track, ended my athletic career as a double All-American in the NAIA for Discus and Hammer.  Once I received my BA in music, I went to Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and received and MDiv with an emphasis in leadership.

I am currently serving as a Jenks Football Coach, a teacher, and am looking forward to seeing what the Lord is doing here at Beaver Street Baptist Church. 




Secretary & Children's Director

Pat Haney

Before becoming our church secretary in 2006, Pat Haney had been enjoying sharing the love of Jesus with children of all ages.  She feels they should have an opportunity to learn about our Savior when they come to church.  Pat began working with our Children's Ministry in 1990.  

As a life-long resident of Jenks, her background brings a variety of experiences, exuberance and great expectations of seeing children grow and develop into Christ followers. Pat passionately believes that ministering to children is a partnership with parents to be the "hands and feet" of Christ for a child. She desires to see others work and grow together in the community of faith to care, serve, and love all children. She believes "playing" in the name of Jesus is some of the most rewarding, and most challenging work you can do in the community of faith.

Pat has been married to her husband, Scott, for 41 years.  They have four sons.  Their eldest son, Dan and his wife, Renata, live in the Glenpool area and have one son and one daughter.  Jon and his wife, Lindsey, reside in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Mike and his wife, Ruthie, reside in Bristow, and Paul and his wife, Tatum, reside in the Tulsa area.
