Pastor Randy attended Fargo United Methodist Church as a child and graduated from Northside High School in 1972. Afterward, he attended Vernon Regional Junior College and Midwestern State University. He received his M.Div. from Liberty University and his Ph.D. from Trinity College of the Bible and Seminary.
