What You Can Expect


Here’s what you can expect from me:
1. Prompt and professional replies to your calls and emails.
2. A personal consultation prior to your event, so we can better understand how I can best serve you and your audience.
3. An announcement about your event on my blog and social media channels. (Assuming your event is open to the public and you want additional visibility for it.)
4. A professionally prepared, dynamically delivered presentation focused on bringing to you the magic of Disney's stories and of Disneyland Park, combining them with spiritual truths, challenge, and encouragement, achieving the outcomes you want for your audience.
5. A custom resource page, exclusively created for your attendees. It will include any slides I used in the presentation, and links to books, articles, and other resources I believe will be helpful.
6. A follow-up communication after the event to make sure I met or exceeded your expectations. (I also want to know how you think I can improve.)


A Little About Me


I have been preaching for almost 20 years, presenting engaging and thought-provoking sermons and messages on a variety of topics. I have been told by previous event organizers that I have a natural rapport and connection with audiences and congregations that makes them relate well to me, engage in my presentations, and come away with a fresh understanding of the subject at hand.

At the same time, I have been a Disneyland annual passholder for 23 years, and I see the park in a way very few do. In my speaking, I bring those two together, using the magic of Disneyland's stories to help you transform your story by seeing it in a new way.

I am a member of Toastmasters International and I have won several club awards for my speaking skills.

I have written two books, Faith and the Magic Kingdom and Once Upon YOUR Time, both of which are Amazon bestsellers.

I grew up in the church, but--like many others--wandered away from the faith for a time in high school. Now, I am an ordained minister, with both a Bachelor’s degree in Church Ministry (emphasis in Preaching) and a Master’s degree in Congregational Leadership from Hope International University in Fullerton, CA.

With the heart of a teacher, the kindness of a friend, and the willingness to challenge you to reach beyond what you think you can do and be, I merge my educational experience, work experience, and unique blend of passions with a dream for helping others. Now, let me put all that to work for you!

I have been happily married to my wife, Faye, for seventeen years. We had our first child--a girl, and an answer to many, many prayers--in April of 2015. We live in Orange County, California. In my free time, I enjoy going to Disneyland (of course!) and SeaWorld, reading, and playing drums. Oh, and after 5 years of running everything from 5Ks to half marathons, I will be running my first full marathon in May 2018!


Most Popular Topics


* "Faith and the Magic Kingdom" – Discovering and exploring the lessons and illustrations of the Christian life found in the stories, attractions, and designs of the original Magic Kingdom, Disneyland. (Tell me what parts of Disneyland you want to focus on (lands, rides, shows, details, etc.) and/or what the goal/theme of your event is, and I'll create a custom presentation uniquely for you!)

* "Who Does God Think You Are?" – Our view of God, His view of us, and how those help us define–and experience–success and significance.

* "Princess Perspectives" – Whether you're facing fear, insecurity, or are just feeling "stuck," a change in perspective can make all the difference. The stories of Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Belle as told at Disneyland will bring that fresh perspective you need.


My Commitment to You


Select me as a speaker, and I will give you a 110% effort, helping you achieve the goals you've set for your event. When you win, I win. It's just that simple.


Some Testimonials


"Randy has the unique ability to combine solid content, catalytic insights, and clear passion every time he speaks. I never come away from one of his presentations without a page full of takeaways." – Larry Winger, CEO of Provision Ministry Group

"A very talented drummer, writer and speaker. I heard some of the most thought-provoking sermons ever while attending the church in Del Amo where Randy served as pastor." - Carlyn O.

"Analytical without being anal. Able to know he is right without being cocky or arrogant, and even willing to learn from the exchange. I guess that means he is willing to become more right. But again not with arrogance." - Tyson B.

"Randy is an amazing conversationalist, has a memory like an elephant, is a fantastic listener, a quiet observer, a supportive friend and one of the best speakers I know!" - Amber P.

"Kind and humble, does not flaunt his intelligence, yet he is exTREMEly so... great conversationalist, he does not listen with the intent of what HE will say next, he listens to understand and share.... amazing friend... more than anything, he loves and follows Jesus PLUS his words match his actions..." - Robyn B.

"The first thing you should know about Randy is that he is madly in love with God. Always has been, always will be. He is not, however, a 'religious wacko'. He's smart, he's reasonable, he's playful, he's respectful and he is incredibly optimistic. Don't expect him to keep a record of wrongdoings or talk down to people. It isn't going to happen. You are going to want to go to an amusement park with him at some point and when you do you will have a great time because I guarantee you, he will be having a great time. If you need a spiritual adviser seek him out. He has some encouragement for everyone. Even an atheist like me." - Lisa F.
