About Our Minister in Residence Program

The Community Church does not have a permanent minister. Rather, it has developed a unique program whereby retired clergy from the US are typically invited for a period of two months to lead our worship service on Sundays and assist in the spiritual and other short term needs of the congregation during their stay. We provide round trip transportation between San Miguel and the minister and his/her spouse's closest to home international airport, and we provide an apartment for them to live in while they are here.

Currently we have several ministers who have returned one or more times. Our ministers are ordained in various denominations such as: Presbyterian, United Methodist, ELCA (Lutheran), United Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, Episcopalian and others.

Our Ministers in Residence

Rev. Tony Robinson - March-April, 2024

Tony and Linda Robinson are thrilled to return to The Community Church of San Miguel de Allende! Tony is ordained in the United Church of Christ. He served four congregations in Washington, Hawaii and Arizona over a thirty year period. For the last 15 years he has done a variety of things including writing many books and articles, speaking at conferences and events nationally and internationally, teaching in seminaries and consulting with congregations and seminaries as they seek to respond faithfully to changing times. He describes his theological bent as one of “generous orthodoxy.” Linda is a retired school principal who enjoys painting, teaching yoga and studying Spanish. Together they have two sons and daughter and six grandchildren. They divide their time between Seattle and summer months at a family cabin in the Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon.
