Youth Track


Rev. Marshaundus L. Robinson

Rev. Marshaundus L. Robinson is the proud pastor of the Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church of Waterloo, IA. He was raised in Waterloo and hails from a family who provided him love and support during his early years. As a result he began going on the speaking circuit as requested by those who viewed him as an inspiration for the community and youth, especially.

He was called into the ministry at the very young age of 13 and began delivering the “Word of God” in churches and at many community events at the age of 17.  He has spoken at the Eastern District Association of the Education and Baptist Convention, the Iowa-Nebraska State Education and Baptist Convention, the Men’s Division Convention at Lake Geneva, and has been afforded many other opportunities nationally, spreading words of encouragement to youth as well as adults. By popular demand, Pastor Marshaundus is returning as our youth speaker for the second year.

As a servant in his community, he has been selected as our returning youth speaker for our 7 th Annual Conference on African American Children and Families, during a time of urgency when the youth are interested in “Pass it on: Lessons Learned from our Ancestors. Using the pulpit and the streets of Waterloo, Rev. Robinson, as a role model, is both a promoter of social justice and knows that obedience to the “Word” brings about blessings to those who heed.

Pastor Marshaundus’s passion to help youth find their God given purpose in life provides a colorful backdrop for his strong message of support representing hope for many who looking toward a bright future.

He is married to Dr. Amber (Boyd) Robinson, Director of Special Programs, Iowa City Community Schools. They are new proud parents of a baby girl.
