Robert L. Mason was born and raised in Cary, NC where he attended school and graduated
from Cary Sr. High.
He went on to attend Shaw University in Raleigh, NC and Apex Theological Seminary,
in Apex, NC.
Though reared in a Christian family Robert strayed away from the church and landed
on the streets, entangled in a life of drugs. After years of addiction, he decided
to turn his life around. While en route to a rehabilitation center, he passed by
a church and was drawn inside. While there, he found the true change he had been
looking for and with the guidance of a minister, gave his life to Christ.
Soon he returned to the church and began to serve. Due to his hard-working nature,
the promotions came quickly, and unfortunately, as a result, Robert fell back into
a life of drugs. Once he was restored this time, he was determined there would be
no turning back. While he battled the temptations from the outside and the church
hurt from the inside, his tests were becoming his testimony and the reason why today
his ministry is designed to rebuild and restore hurting souls.
A transparent preacher, Pastor Mason admits, “I am not afraid to say that I failed
even after I came into the Kingdom.”
Pastor Mason attributes his success in ministry to 3 key people who played a huge
role in his life:
· He cut his teeth on Superintendent Stenneth E. Powell at Abundant Life Christian
· Then at seminary school he met his mentor Alfonza Fullwood, his Homiletics professor;
under his tutelage he went on to do his internship at Riley Hill Baptist Church
· After relocating to Durham, NC, he served as assistant pastor under Bishop James
E. Daniel at Greater Joy Baptist
In April 2008, Pastor Mason gave birth to Greater Love Worship Center where the Motto
is “Serving in Love with A Spirit of Excellence”
One of his favorite sayings is, “We love you and there is absolutely nothing you
can do about it.”
