Meet Our Staff
Pastor Josh Robertson
Josh and Laquita met at the end of 1999 and married in 2005. They came to Mt. Repose in 2009 and feel that God led them straight to our church. Josh felt the call into ministry early in his teen years, but took a bit longer to answer that call. He does have a different set of life experiences from most that are in pastoral positions. Josh is the first to complete the Pastoral Internship here at Mt. Repose, and feels blessed to have been given a different perspective on life that God is using to His Glory. Josh has a full time job outside of the Church and has worked as a Commercial Electrician for over 20 years. Pastor Josh would love the opportunity to talk to you about where you are now and how you can grow into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ!
Hi there, my name is Laquita! I'm married to Josh Robertson, the Associate Pastor of Mt. Repose, and we have three adult children. We're a blended family and it's been an amazing journey. Chris, my oldest son, gifted me with Grandchildren, Mattheau and Zoey. Brian, Josh's son, has taught me many life lessons about what it means to be a step mom. My daughter, Zara, is married to Wayne and they are all wonderful kids!
My Grandson, Mattheau, was diagnosed with Autism. That fueled in me a desire to connect with other families in the ASD world and let them know they are not alone. They are loved and welcomed here at Mt. Repose!
I work from home and volunteer in the church office helping our Pastors with daily clerical needs. I'm also the lead singer in our wonderful IOU Praise band! Singing is a passion of mine. During warm weather, if I'm not at home with family or at church you can most likely find me on my paddle board at the lake soaking in the beauty of God's creation!
Praise Band/Worship Leader
At the age of 7, I was saved in this church. My wonderful Christian parents just felt like Mt. Repose was the place for them and I've spent most of my life worshiping here. God has blessed our congregation with some wonderful people and pastors over the years. I've been involved with the music at this church from an early age and it's been a true blessing to help lead our progression of worship through music. A few years ago my niece, Amanda, and I started a praise "duo". A generous donation of a small drum kit triggered more growth as our pastor's son became our drummer. Then, the Lord brought us Mike, who became not only our lead guitar player, but also a husband for Amanda! So now the band has grown into a talented group of 6; Laquita, Sami, Josiah, Amanda, Mike and myself. We are the I.O.U. Praise Band! We rework some of the older praise songs as well as covering some current mainstream songs. It's been a lot of fun, an incredible blessing, and an exciting journey. I'm sure the best is yet to come!

In 1976 she graduated from Wittenberg University with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. She went on to teach instrumental music and children's church choir for several years. She is now the adult choir director at Mt Repose Church. Her goal is to teach scripture through music and welcomes all to join our choir who love to "make a joyful noise unto the Lord!"
