Robert Carver Washington was born March 19, 1969 in Clearwater, Florida to Mr. Elzie and the late Mrs. Betty M. Washington. As a child growing up in the south, he was reared in a loving Christian environment. He eventually joined a gospel group, "The Gospel Company", as a guitarist. Without any prior lessons he became the group''s lead guitarist. This was the first brick laid in the building of a blessed career in music ministry. Because of his love for music and desire to play for the Lord, God anointed his hands at the age of 14. God further blessed him with an oft-desired musical inclination, the ability to play by ear with perfection. At the age of 19 Robert''s life began to change. He realized he needed to make a total commitment to Christ. He accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior and never looked back.
Robert graduated from Seminole Warhawks High School on June 9, 1988 and embarked on a career in the U. S. Army. After Basic and Advance Individual Training at Ft. Jackson, S. C., he was assigned to Ft. Hood, Texas. While in Texas, a prophetic word proclaimed God had anointed him to play the guitar and through his playing evil spirits would be cast out. That prophetic voice has followed his ministry to this day. On September 15, 1989, Robert was joined in Holy Matrimony to the former Ms. Tina Co-Francis Williams. Tina never floundered in her support of Robert''s musical endeavors through deployments to the Persian Gulf for Operation Desert Storm and special duty in Israel and Africa for famine relief.
After accepting a higher calling from God to the ministry, Robert served in several positions in the 1990s and continues to serve at every level in the Church Of God in Christ, Inc. During this spiritual uplifting God allowed him to serve and play with Gospel great, Carlis L. Moody Jr. He diligently sought God for the ability to write songs such as the ones Carlis wrote. Immediately his prayers were answered and since then he has written approximately thirty original gospel songs. He has worked with Rev. Timothy Wright, David Curry and the late Dr. Mattie Moss Clark. In 1993, during the annual COGIC Holy Convocation, he played before the Honorable William (Bill) Clinton. He has also played for the former First Lady of Germany, Mrs. Kohl, during a charitable event. His choirs have been the opening attractions for such famous gospel-recording artists as The Winans, Evangelist Shirley Caesar and Hezekiah Walker/LFCC. His latest project is the founding of the gospel choir, "The Excited Voices Of Christ." Robert along with the EVOC recorded and released "Confession" in 2001. The album was third in balloting in the Gospel Album of the year category during the 2002 Just Plain Folk Music Awards. Two songs from "Confession" were also nominated for song of the year for the 2002 Just Plain Folk Music Awards. In December 1998, during the annual Germany Auxiliaries in Ministries (GAIM) convention, Bishop Carlis L. Moody, Sr. appointed Min. Washington as the Germany Jurisdiction Minister of Music. In April 2001, during the annual Germany Jurisdiction Women''s Convention, Bishop Carlis L. Moody Appointed Min. Washington as the Pastor of Frankfurt COGIC, located in Frankfurt Germany. Also in August 2001, in the Germany Jurisdiction''s 24th annual Holy Convocation, Bishop Carlis L. Moody ordained Min. Washington as an Elder in the Church of God in Christ, Inc.
Elder Washington served at New Birth Church Of God In Christ, Inc. under the guidance of the Superintendent Elder Carl G. Singleton, Sr. where he was a faithful member for over 11.5 years. God recently fulfilled another promise in his life as well as a dream come true for Robert with the release of his 1st CD on December 2, 2001. Robert yet aspires to become a fulltime gospel music recording artist and songwriter while conducting musical workshops all over the world and to become an anointed preacher of the gospel while striving to be a great husband to his wife.
Robert C. Washington''s Motto is "Pursuing Excellence in Music Ministry".
