Randy Blankenship, Sr. has a lifetime of experience in the church and in ministry. He has been a church planter of two separate congregations, served in overseas missions, served as a denominational leader for church planting, and more than a decade ago was asked to serve as Lead Pastor at the church in which he was raised. Overall, he has served in full-time vocational ministry for over 30 years, with more than 25 of those years as a Lead Pastor.

Obviously, this role has required much pre-marriage counseling, marriage counseling, teaching and study on marriage. Married since 1989, Randy's ministry experiences, personal experiences, and being an avid “culture-watcher” (not culture warrior), have contributed to these unique thoughts on the nature of marriage as a masterpiece picture painted by God, the Master Artist.

Randy received his undergraduate degree in ministry from Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida and has studied further at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, with an emphasis on missions.
