Tri Robinson communicates with a passion that embraces his diverse life experiences as the backdrop for the greater purpose of seeing the world changed for the better. At the very core of this cause is reformation on many fronts – a deep, authentic walk with God, innovative education, ethical godly leadership, and living a sustainable lifestyle that leaves a positive impact on the environment.
Driven by a strong faith and passion for the Kingdom of God, Tri has given the greater part of his adult life to Christian leadership. After a profound life-changing experience in 1980 while working among the Karen Hill Tribe people on the border of Burma and Thailand, he and his wife Nancy made the decision that Tri would leave public education and enter full-time ministry. They served for eight years as associate pastors for the Desert Vineyard in Lancaster, California. In 1989, they moved to Idaho to establish and build the Vineyard Christian Fellowship of Boise. Over the next 25 years Vineyard Boise grew into a strong outreaching church with a membership of about 3000 people. They have developed a 25 acre campus of facilities which serves the community around them as well as the world’s poor.

Tri says: “The minute they hear the “e” word, they think you’re a tree-hugger, or you care about polar bears or seals more than you care about human life. They jump to those political viewpoints immediately and think I’m a liberal. I’m not a liberal. I believe a man should be married to a woman. I believe in the sanctity of life. I believe in those issues that are conservative issues. I was raised that way. I think the Bible says it that way. I just try to teach the truth based on the Bible, and the Bible’s full of truth about it. It’s no option. We’ve been commissioned to care for this earth.”
