Robby Dawkins – is the most sought after Vineyard speaker in the USA and Internationally as well. Many Leaders that were close to John Wimber(Vineyard’s founder) have said that Robby operates in a very similar anointing to John.
Robby and his wife Angie have been married for almost 20 years and have 6 boys ranging from 2 -19. Robby is a fifth generation pastor who was born to missionary parents in Japan. He served as a youth pastor for 12 years for churches between 50 to 14,000 members before he and Angie planted a Vineyard church in the downtown area of Aurora, Illinois (Chicago area) 15 years ago. Their church has many gang members, drug addicts, and prostitutes and just simply down and outers as well as a few middle class. Yet God has shown up to powerfully change these people’s lives through this pastor and church. To date 70% of their church came to Christ at their church and 60% of that through Power encounters (Prophetic, Healing, Deliverance or ministry of God’s manifest presence). The mayor of Aurora along with it’s chief of police recently bestowed upon Robby and the Vineyard an acknowledgment that he and his Vineyard church have made a significant difference in Aurora’s crime rate reduction. For the 1st time in 66 years Aurora, IL was declared homicide free in 2012.
Robby has a deep passion to equip the Church and he ministers extensively to do so (in the U.S. and in 38 countries) in various Denominational and Nondenominational circles in Power Evangelism. He was most recently featured in the movie documentaries “Furious Love” in 2010 and “Father of Lights” in 2012.
