  • Christie Robinson

    Christie grew up in the Peoria area and attended Mt. Olive as a child.  She moved to Florida for 10 years where she met her husband, Scott.  they have three grown boys.  Christie and her husband have been married for 28 years and enjoy going for rides in their convertible, and going to the beach.  She has been the administrative assistant for over 10 years.  growing up at Mt. Olive has brought her many fond memories of the families that she grew up with and seeing some of them still committed to the ministries here gives her a renewed commitment every day to Mt. Olive and it's outreach to the Peoria area.
