Pastor Randy has a heart for Jesus and wants to spread the kingdom of God by sharing his story and the gospel message to others who suffer from drug addiction. He has started his own church plant in the San Fernando Valley—a suburb in Los Angeles reaching out to other recovering addicts that display a hunger for God’s word.
Pastor Randy was born and raised on the Mean Streets of East LA. He grew up in Hispanic housing projects that were low income based. His father served ten years in the state penitentiary while his mother served 17 years in a state penitentiary as a result of their drug use. With nowhere to turn Randy went to live with his grandmother in a different section of East LA—who was also a drug dealer. Naturally he followed the tracks that were laid out before him and became a heroin addict for the next 18 years after serving 7 years in the State Penitentiary. After homelessness and several overdoses, Randy entered a drug rehab in January of 2000. Randy began his new journey here, and has been clean ever since.
Randy married his wife, Maria, in 2014. Together, they have a daughter, Sylvia.
Randy attended Bible College at the King’s University, Pastor Randy graduated with a degree in theology.
