Senior Pastor, Rob Leins

About Pastor Rob

Pastor Rob Leins and his wife Betsy came to the Elkton Church of God in response to God’s call on their lives. They were married in May of 1998 and have been blessed by God with three beautiful children named Hannah, Rachel, and Micah. Rob and Betsy have lived in Cecil County for the majority of their lives and count it a great priviledge to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their home town.

Pastor Rob was appointed as the Associate Pastor of the Elkton Church of God in February 2012 and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Bible from Lancaster Bible College.

Likes: Tea (with loads of sugar), Tacos, Movies, and Golf

A message from Pastor Rob

Thanks for taking the time to look around our site!

My name is Rob Leins, and I am passionate about proclaiming the Word of God and worshipping God with all my heart. I strive on a daily bases to touch the lives of everyone I meet with the reality of God’s love, whether they are members of my church or not.  I believe that God’s holy embrace, His life changing love and His perfect strength will see you through the storms of your life, just as they have seen me through mine. These are God’s promises to you, if you simply choose to believe in God, ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and ask Him to be you Lord and savior, no matter the life decisions that you have made in the past God will forgive you of your sins, count you as one of His own, bless your life through Christian fellowship, love, and friendship, and walk with you  all the rest of your days. God has promised his Holy Spirit to encourage us, empower us, and comfort us no matter the difficulties that we encounter in this life. My Jesus is a good God! I look forward to meeting you in person. Take a look at some of the times we gather together, and make the first step in receiving God’s promises in your life.


In His service,


Pastor Rob

A message from Bishop Woodring

Hello, I'm Calvin Woodring, former Pastor of the Elkton Church of God Praise and Worship Center. Welcome to our website. I would like to take this opportunity to personally invite you to visit one of our worship services when you are in the Elkton area. It is my desire to see every person reached with the gospel of Jesus Christ, and for them to be nurtured in the word of God, that they may experience the fullness of His spirit, and move into the abundance of His blessings for which He so graciously gave His life, that we may have eternal life.
