Dr Chip Corbin
Since 2010, Dr. Chip Corbin has served as lead pastor at Round Hill Baptist Church. His ministry as a local church pastor has been a commitment to discipleship, family ministries and following Christ’s example of an authentic life of prayer. Pastor Corbin enjoys all the journeys that are a part of following Christ. Some of those journeys he has enjoyed in the pastoral ministry through the years are:
JOURNEYS WITH FAMILIES
Dr. Corbin and his wife Penny both began following Christ when they were in the 4/14 window (between the ages of 4 and 14). Their two children also made commitments to Christ in their 4/14 window. The 4/14 age span is where 85% of Christians first come to a relationship and commitment with Jesus Christ. Pastor Corbin shares, “I didn’t know at the age of 13 when I trusted Christ, that God would one day lead me to serve others as a pastor. I would never have dreamed that dream. That is why the 4/14 window is such an exciting work and ministry of the local church.”
JOURNEYS WITH LOCAL CHURCHES
Dr. Corbin has journeyed with churches in evangelism training with CWT and FAITH, seeing over 75 members involved in their weekly evangelistic mission; the building of an educational building housing a local church’s newly founded Christian School; and the relocation of a local church, including the purchase of 11 acres and the construction of an entire new church facility.
JOURNEYS WITH PRAYER MINISTRY
It was a prayer journey that God used in Pastor Corbin’s own life and led him into the gospel ministry full time for over 38 years. The seasons of prayer for the local church have been the most effective way of seeing transformation take place in his own life, the lives of individuals, churches and community ministries.
JOURNEYS WITH HURTING PEOPLE
In experiencing the dedication and commitment of first responders in Loudoun County and the difference each of them make in our communities, pastor Corbin served for six years as volunteer chaplain to Round Hill Station 4 and the county’s chaplain corps who minister to those who are hurting and in crisis.
JOURNEYS WITH COMMUNITY MINISTRIES
Pastor Corbin, while serving as senior pastor, led churches in establishing a Christian School, weekday preschools, Awana clubs and Word of Life ministries. Each of the ministries exists to serve the local church communities. Pastor Corbin has been recognized by The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary for outstanding achievement in evangelistic effectiveness in the Southern Baptist Convention by the Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism, and Church Growth. He also participated in the research information for the book Effective Evangelistic Churches, by Thom Rainer.
