Beginning Sunday, September 3rd, we will welcome Dr. Randy James and his wife, Mary Jane, as our interim pastor for the months of September and October. Randy James has been a part of the Church of the Nazarene for most of his life. Growing up in Indiana, he has since earned a Bachelor and Masters of Arts degrees from Trevecca Nazarene University, a Master of Divinity from Union University of California, and a Doctorate in Church Administration from Trinity Theological Seminary. Along with the position as lead pastor here at Pompano Beach (1997-2002), he has served the church as a Commissioned Evangelist, Lead Pastor (Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia), Missionary (Director of Spiritual Development, Chaplain, and Lecturer at Africa Nazarene University), and served briefly as Vice-President of Institutional Development for Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary. Currently he serves as a transitional interim pastor (TIPS) with NXT Step Church Services. He produces a three-minute audible daily devotional which goes around the world, and a monthly newsletter for those who are interested in following his journeys. He is the author of five books: Unraveling the Revelation, The Fifteen Flavors of Love, Prayers from the Psalms, Reflections on Romans, and Reflections on the Gospel of John. He and Mary Jane have a home outside of Lake Wales, Florida, and just celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary. (See photo attached.) They have two children (Toni, a TIPS Pastor, and Rick, a hospital chaplain) who are also elders serving in the Church of the Nazarene. We’re thrilled to welcome Pastor Randy and Mary Jane “back home” to PBN Church for a few months!
