Pilgrim’s Hope Baptist Church

First Lady Files: Jasmine Morton-Robinson

Jasmine Morton-Robinson has a rich ministry and musical legacy.

As the daughter of Bishop Paul and Deborah Morton, she’s been on the front row to her parent’s ministry all her life. This is helping Ross, who married Rev. Tyron Robinson of Pilgrim’s Hope Baptist Church on March 31, 2017.
Robinson, who has worked in ministry most of her life as a worship leader and administrator says her mother’s life as a pastor’s wife has provided a wealth of wisdom for her.
“I’m Pastor Robinson’s wife first so my purpose is to serve him as he follows Christ and then comes serving the people he shepherds,” says the New Orleans native. “My mother always says ‘don’t get so close to the anointing that you don’t forget to honor it.’ So even though he’s my husband and friend, he is also an anointed man of God and that is his primary role in life.”
The 39-year-old mother of two sons ages 13 and 9, holds down a full-time job at Loyola Marymount University as well as leading worship and spearheading a growth campaign at the church. 
While Robinson has had her share of trials (she lost her first-born child in 2003, an 18- month-old daughter named Kai to a virus that ultimately took her life) but she says, once again, her parents example helped her.
“In the end, I trusted that my daughter was in a better place. I really had a peace about it because of my relationship with God and that’s a testament to the way I was raised. We’ve been through a lot but our faith is strong. I thank God for my parents and instilling that in me.”
