This week I speak with Randy Kinnick. Randy was raised in Tenn. The divorce of his parents, when he was 12 years old, rocked his world. As Randy grew he began to have a more mature understanding of his faith and relationship with the Lord . At age 19, after making plans to pursue a degree in architecture, God changed his direction completely and He answered a call to ministry. In those years of learning and growth, Randy sensed that mental health therapy would play an important role in his ministry and enrolled in college where he earned an M.Ed. in Counseling. He has since seen God’s hand at work to lead him into and through many wonderful opportunities of ministry around the world. Randy has served in pastoral roles, through preaching, teaching, counseling, and evangelistic effort. His skills of writing have been utilized to contribute to both published and non-published works of Bible study materials, small group curricula, periodical articles, and blogging. His gift of teaching has taken him across the United States, France, Canada, and the country of the Philippines. And has had opportunities to touch lives in the Philippines and Honduras. Randy’s burden for battling human trafficking has led him to work in the country of Thailand. Randy has been amazed to see the hand of God at work to do things above and beyond his imagination He currently serves as the Therapeutic Foster Care Program Director for the Mid-North Region of Tennessee. This week, we discuss his own traumas and struggles and the real need for normalizing mental health in the church and the world. You won’t want to miss this vulnerable and honest discussion!
