Pastor Randy Bevington
"...only God could have taken me from the Dog House to
the Lighthouse."


Pastor Randy Bevington is an Ohio City native and graduated from Ohio City-Liberty in 1978. After high school, he spent 3 years in the Air Force National Guard while in college and then 8 years active duty as a Naval Aviator stationed in San Diego, CA. It was while in Navy boot camp in 1982 that Randy became a Christian. "I was in big trouble so I called out to God to rescue me and to empower me to change my life. God was absolutely faithful and He did just that. There has never been a moment since that day that I have regretted surrendering my life to Him".

After leaving the Navy in 1990, Randy entered the ministry while attending Bethel Theological Seminary in San Diego, CA. While in San Diego Randy served as a youth pastor, college & career Pastor and a music minister. On January 1, 1995 Randy conducted his first service as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Christian Center in Nipomo, CA. "As I prepared for my first service at Lighthouse, I thought back to when I worked at the Dog House Saloon in Ohio City and realized that only God could have taken me from the Dog House to the Lighthouse".

As a gifted teacher, Randy makes God's Word easy to understand and applicable to how our lives are lived in this imperfect and at times troubling and tragic world. "I am not a strong believer in religion, denominationalism or man made theology. I love to open the Bible and teach what it has to speak to each of us personally. God's Word teaches us how to have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father through Jesus and the Holy Spirit and His plan for our lives".

Randy's wife Judy is a math teacher at Delphos Jefferson High School. Their son Cade works in the electrical department building custom ambulances and serves as Music Minister at OCCCoG. Cade's wife Courtnie is a Synographer at Lima Memorial Hospital. Their daughter Cassidy is a recent graduate of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology with a double major in physics and mat. She currently works as a civilian scientist for the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Corona, CA.

Randy enjoys flying, working out, sports, music and spending as much time as possible with his family.

"My desire for ministry is very simple. I have lived half of my life my way and half of it God's way. I have found that God's way works much better. I consider myself very blessed and I know I am not special. If God will do it for me, He will do it for you. I love the opportunity to show people how to be successful in Christ.
