music reflects his experience with Christ; it reflects a vibrant
experience with a God who is in the world and changes people’s
lives. His songs and his story have been an inspiration to
many in our fellowship of faith. I commend his work to all.”

is a religious experience! Jim Robinson is a gifted writer,
who knows how to speak to the heart. The words and music combine
to express the paradox of the Christian life. The lyrics haunt,
yet they comfort. The music is appealing, yet reverent. Listen
closely; Robinson's story deserves your attention."
Haislip, Pastor, Salem Fork Christian Church (Disciples of
Christ), Dobson, NC

church family recently had the pleasure of hosting Jim Robinson
for a wonderful evening of worship. Jim's honest approach
to ministry and sincere testimony of deliverance will touch
the heart of the believer and move the unbeliever to make
a decision for Christ. Jim makes a point in his concerts to
be transparent and show through the ministry of music the
love and forgiveness of Jesus."

Holiness Church, Greenville, North Carolina

Robinson is attempting to bring a new level of understanding
and awareness to church people of the need for love and acceptance
of those with addictions, so they can feel safe in acknowledging
their problems and seek help. His message is strongly redemptive
and he presents very clearly the reality that only in Christ
can these needs be met. In our Sunday evening service, following
Jim's morning concert, one of our board members’ wives
stood and shared how God had used Jim’s story in her
life—she came from a home where her father was an alcoholic—and
shared its powerful effect on her. Many others also were touched
by the message of Jim’s story, and are now seeking additional
help for their specific needs. I would encourage everyone
to consider opening your doors to this type of message, one
greatly needed in the church today."

Robinson’s message of God’s redeeming grace
brought such hope to the people of our community. We thank
God for using Jim as an instrument of blessing.”

"I can't begin to
mention all the encouraging comments we received from our
congregation about how much they enjoyed you sharing in
our services. Truly, we enjoyed your message in song and
testimony. It seemed the time went by way too fast.
I was really blessed by the song written about your mother-in-law,
'Until The Light Goes Out.' We all have members in our family
who have experienced exactly what your song expressed. Your
song was a wonderful tribute to her as well as your father-in-law,
Of course, I knew many of your songs even before you visited;
your songs are played on a station that I download while
at work. The station is KLOVE radio out of Sacramento, California.
I wish you could be with us this Sunday as our choir sings
your beautiful song, 'Be.' Having had you share this song
makes it that much more special. I know that our paths will
cross again. You have a wonderful voice and testimony and
are very musically BLESSED! I know God will use you mightily."

"Our church was recently
blessed to have Jim Robinson come and lead us in a special
time of worship through his songs and his personal testimony. His
musical talents are extraordinary, his testimony is a heart-warming
one, but most of all his heart is sincere.
Jim performed here on the day after we lost a dear friend
and member of our church who had a cancerous brain tumor. Daniel
was only 11 years old when God called him home one Saturday
night. And Jim had agreed to lead us in worship on
Sunday morning. I called Jim and informed him of the
events that had taken place the night before so that he
could plan a time of worship a little different than we
had originally discussed.
Without hesitation he went to work with the leading of the
Holy Spirit and led us in a time of worship that was conducive
to the spirit of loss we were feeling that Sunday morning.
He truly ministered to our needs through his music and testimony
and allowed the Holy Spirit to dictate how he led our time
of worship. For that, our congregation was truly thankful.
It is without reservation that I recommend Jim Robinson
to you as a musician and a brother in Christ. In whatever
capacity he is asked to lead in, I feel confident that it
will all be done in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Mike Smith, Bethel, North Carolina

"Jim Robinson tells a story
of family dysfunction and substance abuse and, ultimately,
redemption. Such testimonies are not that unusual among
Christians. What is extraordinary about Jim is this: He
tells it straight. He does not milk his story for sentimentality.
He does not over-spiritualize his story, nor does he attempt
to manipulate people with it. He just tells it. And the
power of his life stands on its own. Both in his testimony
and music, we experience the true liberating power of Christ."
Murray, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Wilson, NC

"This past February, we
had the privilege of hosting Jim Robinson at our church. His
testimonial concert entitled Healing The Broken Spirit,
brought a much needed and inspiring message of hope and
healing to our congregation. Through his music and
message, he reflected the love of our Savior, and showed
us a living example of Christ’s redeeming promise
of grace. I am pleased to endorse Jim and ProdigalSong
Ministries. This courageous communicator will be a
blessing to your body of faith."
Reverend H. Gregory West, JCL, Saint Gregory The Great Catholic
Church, Bluffton, SC
