9:30 & 11 a.m. Sundays


What we do: coordinate The Sanctuary’s care for the missionaries we support and for the partnerships in which we are involved. We also oversee the missions budget and encourage and facilitate church members to have opportunities for short-term missions experiences.

Favorite part of our job: We love hearing the stories of how God is working all over the world.

Little known fact: We have been married for over 20 years and have never paid for cable TV!

We’d rather be: playing and serving at Camp Timber-lee (but, honestly, we’re content where we are).

Randy and Linda have been the “Missions People” for the past 10 years. Their love of missions and desire to see all people come to know Jesus started while they were in college and were involved with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. They have a strong commitment to helping people see and better understand how God is at work throughout the entire world.
