Pastor's Office

Robbie L. Gibson, Senior PastorHi!,  I'm Robbie Gibson, Senior Pastor for East Sanford Baptist Church.  I want to thank you for visiting our website.  I hope that you have found this site to be helpful to you.

I began pastoring here on January 1, 2010.  This is the third church in the Moore/Lee Counties area that I have pastored.  I grew up in West End, located just about 30 minutes from here in Moore County.  I started preaching at the age of 12, but fell away from God and the church for a time after reaching the age of 18.  I am thankful that "nothing can separate me from the love of God."  God continued to pursue me and call me back to Him.  Finally, in 1995, in returned to God's house and His Kingdom plan for my life.  I have been serving His church since 1996, when I started as Youth Minister of First Baptist Church of Vass.  From there, my wife and I started an independent youth ministry ( and helped to start a new church, Open Arms Community Church, in the Vass area.  I served as pastor of Open Arms for 5 years before moving back to my home church of First Baptist Church of West End, where I served as their pastor for another 5 years, until December 31, 2009.

I have taken undergraduate religion courses at Campbell University and recently began working toward my BA in Religion through Liberty University.

I have a wonderful wife, Annette Stewart Gibson, and two outstanding sons, Joshua and Caleb.  Annette works with the children's ministry, sings with the praise team and choir, and is the church secretary and custodian.  Joshua and his wife, Lindsay have a daughter born November 2017 and expecting another in July 2019.  Caleb and his wife, Kylie, are serving a church in Castalia where Caleb serves as Associate Pastor of Youth and Outreach.
