Meet Our Ministry Team
Rev. Randy Rains
On August 1, 2018, Black Creek called Rev. Randy Rains to be our head pastor. Randy hails from Western KY, and is joined by his wife, Betty, who is originally from Alabama. Randy and Betty have three children, Heather, Heath, and Josh, as well as six wonderful grandchildren.
After he graduated from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1982 with an emphasis on Pastoral Care, Randy and Betty served overseas as missionaries for 16 years in Bangladesh, the Philippines, and Australia. Returning the States, Randy began working for the home office of the International Mission Board here in Richmond, eventually becoming the Associate Vice President of Missionary Personnel, as well as Associate Vice President of Spiritual Life and Formation.
Randy and Betty bring an enormous amount of experience to Black Creek. From Betty’s background as an English teacher, to Randy’s extended training in spiritual training, and even their shared pastoral experience, Randy and Betty continue to serve God faithfully, and will truly make an impact within our community.
