Pastor Randy Sands

Pastor Randy serves as our Senior Pastor.

Pastor Randy and Barb came to Hillsboro in the summer of 1987 and literally planned to retire there.  They have been married for 30 years and have two married children, Matt (Missy) and Mark (Elisa). They were recently blessed with a granddaughter, Alma Faith Sands born on May 1, 2013. They also love their grand-dog Shooter.

Randy enjoys fishing, playing online spades and running (it slows down the aging process).  Barb works full time at Greenville College and is completing her accounting degree online.  She is passionate about helping individuals with their personal finances and leads Financial Peace University.

Cruises are their favorite vacations and they hope to take more before Jesus returns.

After serving over 25 years, they believe their best days are ahead of them!
