Randy HedlundYouth/Children's Ministry
I grew up in a church-going family. At home I was taught to conduct myself as a Christian, yet I don’t recall hearing the need for personal salvation through my church. I did pray to receive Christ a couple of times at youth camp because I wanted to go to heaven, but I didn’t really understand the work of Christ on my behalf.
As a teenager, I got involved with a high school Bible study. Through the things I was learning in Bible study and the stresses I felt about planning for college and career, I came to a point of realizing the need to personally repent of my sins and I surrendered my life to Christ. I began to truly grow in my relationship with Christ through this high school study and later through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. After completing college, I volunteered for the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ and served at their headquarters for three years. I met and married my wife, Wendy, during this time.
Over the years I have developed a passion for studying and teaching the Bible which is God’s word for man’s need. We moved to Green Bay and joined Bethel Baptist Church in 1993. I began teaching adult Sunday school classes shortly after that. A few years later I began serving on the church elder board. I continue to teach adults in Sunday school classes and New Community Groups.
