About Pastor Randy

Welcome to Acton Community Presbyterian Church! I am happy to invite

you to join us in our small, warm fellowship of followers of Jesus

Christ. We're committed to loving God and his word; to loving one

another, and to serving the world in Christ's name.


During a junior year abroad in college I met Evelyne, a

French-speaking native of Switzerland. We were married after my first

year in graduate school for the fine arts. During the following two

years we felt God’s call to return to Europe to work with

International students. After several years in that role, we returned

to the U.S. to serve churches in California, Ohio, and the Seattle



I earned a Ph.D. in theology, and have focused on teaching throughout

my ministry. Evelyne has worked for Migrant Head Start and for public

and private schools. We love coffee, city walks, the countryside,

dogs, horses, and books.


Evelyne and I have 3 grown daughters, and are excited about recently

becoming first-time grandparents! It is our joy to serve Jesus

together and to welcome you.
