Randy has taught adult Sunday school classes at Rutledge Second Baptist Church and Luverne First Assembly for many years. Revelation was one of his favorite Bible books to teach. He also held several other positions in the church where he attended.
In 2018, he received his chaplain certification from the Biker Bible Institute and was a founding member of Three in One Motorcycle Ministry; he and Beth operated the Living Water Coffee House in Luverne, where they held weekly Bible studies and church services.
Randy has always loved showing the maps of the United States and the world on the wall of the store; they both presented pins where people passing through Luverne stopped for a cup of coffee and a visit, and they always invited them to add a pin to their hometown.
They had a ministry to the “invisible peoples” – those whom most people overlook. He always said he had a ‘talk to me’ face, and people shared their life stories with him because he was a good listener.
Randy enjoyed riding his motorbike and studying the Bible.
On top of that, Randy loved to prank people at unexpected times. Randy was a social person, and his infectious smile drew people to him every day.
His main purpose was to lead people to Jesus.
