About Randy Wheeler
Vice President and Relationships Managerrwheeler@thesolomonfoundation.org
Randy considers himself a Texan at heart, having spent his formative teenage days in Amarillo. After graduating from Ozark Christian College, Randy held youth ministries in New Mexico and Colorado before becoming the Sr. Pastor of Twin Oaks Christian church, which is now in Woodhaven, MI, in 1990. In his 28 years at Twin Oaks he experienced just about every side of ministry that could prepare him for his role with The Solomon Foundation.
Randy’s heart is firmly planted in the church. While still in high school he would raid his father’s sermons files for something to preach at a small rural church an hour away. He has a passion for encouraging other pastors and helping them succeed and achieve their dreams. He also has a heart for missions, with one son having spent 9 years as a missionary to China and through helping his wife, Chris, as she developed a child sponsorship program in Cambodia and now encourages her work with Velvet Ashes – a ministry that encourages women in missions around the world (founded by their daughter-in-law)
Randy and Chris married in 1974 and have 3 children, Josh (Kirsten), Aaron (Danielle), and Ashley (Sean) and 6 grandchildren . They live in Woodhaven, MI.
