The following is the official statement of Dr. Robinson's resignation:

 

Pastor Burnett Robinson has resigned as the Senior Pastor of the Grand Concourse Seventh-day Adventist Church, and as a worker in the Greater New York Conference, effective immediately. The Greater New York Conference of Seventh-day Adventists recognizes many have been deeply harmed by the sentiments expressed by Robinson. The views he expressed are wrong and not accepted by our church. Rape and sexual assault of women are crimes and should always be treated as such. We will continue to educate and counsel all pastors, seminary students, and staff to fully understand that this type of rhetoric is abhorrent and unequivocally unacceptable. We will continue to pray for and seek to become stronger advocates on behalf of survivors and those still living with violence and abuse. The Seventh-day Adventist Church condemns any language or behavior that perpetrates or encourages any type of violence against women.  We humbly apologize and ask for forgiveness.

WELCOME FROM THE GNYC PRESIDENT

We at the Greater New York Conference of Seventh-day Adventists extend a warm welcome to you as you visit and learn about us. We represent one of the Seventh-day Adventist Church organizations serving the New York metropolitan area. 

Our conference of over 32,018, is a diverse conference and on any given sabbath you can find our members worshiping in different languages and ethnic groups.  If you are looking for a church home in the Greater New York Area, please connect with us and we will be glad to have you worship in one of our over 187 churches and companies.

We have a lot of fascinating information to share with you of how the Lord is blessing our conference and the advancements we have made in so many areas. There is a link to each of our Departments and I hope you will take the time to visit and see how the Lord has been blessing His work through dedicated individuals.

I pray that as you discover what God is doing in our territory you will be inspired and share it with others for the uplifting of the Kingdom of God.

Thank you for visiting us and may God bless you.

President
