Randy was born in Warrensburg, MO and grew up in Monroe, LA. He grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ when he was a teenager. He graduated from Northeast Louisiana University (now known as the University of Louisiana at Monroe) with a B.S. in Pre-Medicine. He then attended Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport, and subsequently did his residency in Family Medicine at the same institution. He is bi-vocationally called and is currently serving as a Medical Director for CareNow, a local urgent care company, in the Frisco area. He is serving Lakeland in an interim capacity since March, 2016. He is leading worship for our corporate worship services and giving general leadership to our Worship and Technical Arts Ministry during this time. He is married to Karla and they have two adult children who are both involved in worship ministry as well. His hope for Lakeland is that we would be a church family that is continually understanding what it means to worship God with sincerity and passion.
