An Impression on People:
"Pastor Randy is one of the most unique Pastors I have had the privilege to work with. He has just the right amount of what it takes to be a faithful Man of God and Friend ... a Leader and a Listener ... an encourager and equipper.
First: He gives himself fully to God. Pastor Randy has a passion to serve the Lord and to lead His People. His care is genuine, his smile is real and you can see his servant's heart in his Love/Compassion and Humor!
Second: The man you see ... is the Man of God you get! Pastor Randy does not have an "on and off" switch. Whether you are having a conversation or you are in the sanctuary listening to the inspired word of God ... You will find Pastor Randy to be the same Humble/Loving/Comical person. Kind of like ... What you see is what you get ... Praise the Lord!
Third: Pastor Randy is in touch with the world around us. He has an ability to impact his messages with humor, real (personal and family) issues and an understanding of God's Word that makes it accessible to all."
---Jim Goodrich, Worship Leader and Co-Founder of Holy Blues Bros.
It is Pastor Randy's wish that you would feel comfortable and enjoy "coming to church" so that you listen and do absolutely nothing or dive right in and be a part of an organization that cares.
He realizes, like many that already "come to church," that all of our lives will be better, full, meaningful and filled with hope because of the wonderful principles of successful living as shared in God's Word. We always look forward to it!
And so will you!
See you at the Church on Mariposa...
