You and your ministry have a vision and are ready to move forward. LCEF offers critical demographic support that can help complete necessary groundwork before you move into action.
For more information about Demographics, please call LCEF’s Information Representatives at 800-843-5233 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Understanding and meeting the spiritual and educational needs of your community so you can reach them directly with your message is critical to your ministry plan. LCEF’s online Demographics tool is designed to help you achieve this understanding.
As you consider new mission opportunities, demographic data is an essential part of planning for growth, developing effective missions and ministry, planting new churches and reaching more people.
The data can also help established ministries monitor changes in their communities and share their stories with those around them.
As a consultant for Capital Funding Services (CFS), Randy enjoys assisting the Lord’s people in experiencing the joys of generosity. He is a firm believer in the Scriptural truth that “whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” (2 Corinthians 9:6). He says, “Stewardship is simply reflecting the image of our generous God, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing.” His leadership has encouraged his congregation to provide generous support for ministries locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
Randy has been a parish pastor for 35 years. For the past 28 years, he has been serving First Immanuel Lutheran Church, Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Leading a large congregation has enabled him to experience six capital campaigns, allowing him to provide great insights to pastors in capital campaigns and stewardship.
Randy has served Concordia University Wisconsin as an adjunct professor of theology for 26 years. In 2010, the university awarded him the honor of “Distinguished Alumnus.” He has also served 12 years on the South Wisconsin District Board of Directors, including six years as Board Chair and First Vice President of the district. He conducts seminars on generosity and provides encounters for parish pastors to discuss cultural issues and the church’s impact.
Randy resides in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, with his wife, Diana, who is the South Wisconsin District’s Lutheran Church Extension Fund’s District Vice President. They have two married daughters and three granddaughters. Randy’s mission statement is to serve God by serving others.
