Randy Miller
Office Phone: (765) 412-3637
randylynn59@hotmail.com

Randy Miller was born in northern Iowa, in a town of about 200. He grew up going to church with the family, pretty much every Sunday. Randy attended mostly Churches of Christ or Christian Churches. As an adult, Randy experimented with going to many different churches, to get an idea of their beliefs. He wanted to get an idea of the differences between what he grew up with and what they believed. Randy have realized that he was so very unworthy of God’s love, and yet he realized God watched over him even when he didn’t deserve it. Randy has been blessed to be an Elder at Crossroads and is working hard to be worthy of that post, as a servant leader. As Paul the Apostle said, “of sinners I am chief among them”.Randy feels he, too, is one that falls into the category and is thankful for the grace of our Lord. Randy hopes that anyone that is in need of an ear to listen, anything they may be going through, knows they can come to him. You will not shock him with what you have to say, as he may have gone through the same things at one time in his own life. Randy simply wants everyone to know: “I am here for you.”
