Randy was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, along with his twin sister Rachal. While a young child, both of his parents had a radical encounter with Jesus. The effect it had upon their lives had an immediate influence on him. At the age of 7 he would sneak his sister's stuffed animals into his room and preach passionately to Ernie and Bert, Bugs Bunny, Sylvester, Tweety Bird, and many others.
As a teenager Randy began to drift from his love for Christ. At the age of 16 he was in a horrible car accident coming home from a Rock Concert after a weekend of partying. Shortly after his wreck he was confronted by his best friend Conrad about eternity and made the decision to attend his first youth group. Later that night, in his bedroom, he cried out to Jesus and was forever changed.
Within 2 weeks Randy drove to a parking lot full of teenagers on a Saturday night, dropped the tailgate of his truck and preached his first message (to real humans). What happened that night in the parking lot would mark his life and shape his future.
At the age of 20 he married the love of his life, Rebecca Marie. He has been blessed to experience tremendous revival as a Youth Pastor, where they and their teams led many thousands to the Lord, and experienced tremendous growth, having up to 850 youth in their weekly services with over 1,200 youth meeting in small groups.
Randy has preached in 11 countries and in 35 states across the U.S. His passion is to see people come to Christ and experience His mercy, love, forgiveness, and purpose in life.
He believes he has a mandate to help equip churches and Christians effectively share the gospel with others.
"If we were completely honest right now, the vast majority of people who call themselves Christians are extremely bored with Christianity. They have little excitement about attending church, and almost no desire to share the Good News with anyone else. Something must change and it must change now."
Randy & Becky were married in September of 1994 and have four wonderful children who all serve with them in ministry. Alyssa (22), Paul (19), Victoria (16), and Hannah (15).
Randy travels extensively preaching in churches, conferences, youth events, and many other settings, provoking the body of Christ to love Jesus more and to reach the lost.
