Pastor Randy Raynes was born in Cheverly, Maryland and grew up in a small town in Indiana. August of 1974 was a turning point in Pastor Raynes' life. He trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour while attending a week of camp at the Bill Rice Ranch. It was there that he surrendered to serve God with his life. Upon graduating from high school, he enrolled at Hyles - Anderson College and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pastoral Theology in 1979. After graduating, he went to Waverly, Ohio to work as an associate pastor. It was in this church where he met his wife and they married in 1980. He pastored churches in North Caroline, Michigan, and Indiana. In November 2000, Pastor Raynes was called to pastor Fellowship Baptist Church, where he continues to faithfully serve.
