Robert Lee Mack, Jr. was born in Yulee, Florida on March 19, 1957, the son of the late Mr. Robert Lee Mack, Sr. and the late Mrs. Bertha Lee Mack. Growing up, he attended Friendship Baptist Church, where he was baptized at the age of seven.
He graduated from Fernandina Beach High School in 1975, and attended college at Southern Technical Institute in Marietta, Georgia, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering and a Bachelor’s Degree in Apparel Manufacturing Engineering in 1979. Upon graduating from college, Robert was employed by Southern Bell as an Outside Plant Engineer. While at Southern Bell, Robert attended law school at Georgia State University Law School, and graduated in 1993. In 1993, Robert opened his law practice on a part-time basis, and in 1995 he left Southern Bell and began working full-time at his law practice.
In January 1980, Robert accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, and accepted his calling as a Teacher of God’s Word. Also, in November 1980, he began dating Rochelle Denise Richardson, who became his wife on September 19, 1981. To this union was born three children: Rachel, Robert III, and Ryan.
In 2004, Robert accepted his calling to preach God’s Word and to pastor God’s people, and on January 9, 2005, he was licensed to preach God’s Word. On October 11, 2006, Robert was chosen to serve as the Interim Pastor for Greater Works Missionary Baptist Church, a position he humbly accepted. On May 20, 2007, he was installed as Pastor of Greater Works Missionary Baptist Church, Jonesboro, Georgia.
Under his leadership, several ministries have been established to empower, teach, and engage the members in spreading the Gospel of Christ in fulfilling the will of God to make disciples of all nations. This includes a very strong and dedicated Deacon Ministry; a Christian Education Ministry which continues to grow with classes for every age group; a Music Ministry, which consists of a Mass Choir, Men’s Choir, Youth Choir, and Praise Team; and a Food/Clothing Distribution Ministry which has provided food and clothing to thousands of families throughout the Clayton County and Metro-Atlanta area.
Then, in March 2011, Pastor Mack led us to our new building and present location, in Forest Park, where he continues to preach the unadulterated Gospel of Grace. Pastor Mack simply views himself as "a Nobody, telling Everybody about Somebody, Jesus Christ, who can save Anybody."
