We have engaged in this ministry which allows us, and others, to pursue God, to proclaim Christ and to produce disciple-makers. In 2004, Nedra and I accepted the invitation to serve with Campus Crusade for Christ through FamilyLife in equipping couples with practical, scripture-based approaches to real-world issues through conferences, broadcasts, and resources.
I (Randy) serve on the FamilyLife Ministry Advisor Team. Our team engages with individuals, couples, churches and organizations, to equip and guide them in the use of various resources. We minister to and minister with others as they have a desire to engage in their own personal marriage and family ministry. I also serve as a CRU Ministry Partner Development Coach for New and Senior Staff. Our team of coaches offer resources and encouragement to missionary staff as they engage with and encourage their respective ministry partners. Our objective is to help those who are missionary staff to report and stay healthy...spiritually, emotionally, relationally and financially...so they will be able to give themselves fully to the ministry God has called them to serve.
Nedra primarily serves with the Legal Administrative and Support Team at FamilyLife. She is intimately involved with corresponding with the network of FamilyLife writers and publishers to insure contract agreements are satisfied. She and her Team also keep all FamilyLife Staff informed about proper operating practices to protect FamilyLife from harm in confidentiality and intellectual property agreements with staff and others. Nedra and I together also serve together to grow local Marriage Champions, those who desire to develop personal marriage ministry in their church and local area.
We have two adult boys. Our oldest son, Ryan, lives in Lawrence, KS and our younger son, Travis and his wife Julia live and work in the Northwest Arkansas area.
Nedra and I are thankful for this ministry. It gives us direct opportunities to tell others about Christ and build up believers in the faith. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve and help people understand and implement Gods truth for marriage and family. We recognize this is a team effort in which God allows many people to participate. We cannot do this alone! The Lord uses people like you make it possible for us to stay engaged in this ministry. We are responsible to identify and maintain consistent monthly financial support. This support allows us to serve full-time at no cost to Cru or FamilyLife. Currently, we are trying to identify new ministry partners. We invite you to become monthly prayer and financial Partners with us.
