Robin Smith

Academic Studies Manager & Principal Lecturer

Robin is the Academic Studies Manager and Principal Lecturer at CYM. Joining the team in 2016, he brings his extensive experience and insights into youth ministry across various settings to support CYM students in their learning and discipleship journeys.

Robin lived in Scotland until he completed his degree at London Bible College. Since then he has been involved in youth ministry in a range of roles: local church, outdoors education, regional development worker. Since completing an MA in Youth and Community Work and Applied Theology he has tutored on a number of ministry training courses for over 15 years. Robin is currently studying for his Doctorate in Education, lives in Leeds with his wife; he loves the outdoors, music, nature and being a ‘back of the pack’ triathlete.

My favourite moments in ministry, and now through CYM, are seeing young people and developing leaders realise they are ‘able’ – growing in confidence, inspired by God and supported by others to find their place in God’s mission.
