Randy has been an Open Bible Pastor since 2013 and has been in leadership in several Open Bible Churches from the Chicago area, NW Iowa, SW Florida and now St. Petersburg Florida. He was born and raised in Chicago and in 1980 moved to St. Petersburg Florida where he met his future wife Theresa. Theresa and Randy were married in 1989 and few years later moved back to the Chicago area with their two children.
Randy promised to take Theresa to church when they moved back to the Chicagoland area but Randy was a bit resistant at that time as he was busy with “more important” things, but God had other plans for them! Some time later they bought a 1968 Mustang in which he restored. They would go to car shows every weekend but one weekend in 2004 they went to a car show at Firm Foundation Open Bible Church in Roselle Illinois. There they met Pastor Eric Holdeman and decided to start attending that church, well they never left church after that!
They both gave our lives to Jesus Christ soon after. God called Randy to become a Pastor a few years later and he started that long journey. Theresa and Randy attended 1st level INSTE Bible College together and he went on to INSTE Level 2. Randy also teaches INSTE level one where he is a Master Teacher and also level 2. They also were blessed to work with Pastor Frank Dominoski with his ministry in Hanover Park Illinois
They moved to Spirit Lake Iowa in 2009 to continue their education and to serve at Spirit Life Fellowship Open Bible Church. Randy became a Open Bible Pastor in 2013 in Spirit Lake. God then called them back to Florida in 2014 where they served in several Open Bible Churches in the area.
God still had more plans for them as in 2017 they were offered a Senior Pastor position at Serendipity Fellowship in North Ft Myers Fl, where they served for 2 1/2 years. God then called them to Open Bible Church in St. Petersburg, Fl in 2019 as a Senior Pastor.
God has guided them down a wonderful path of serving Him and His people. Theresa and Randy are very honored to serve Him here in St. Pete and are excited in seeing this church grow with the new vision He gave them with this wonderful ministry to change lives here in this community!
