Giving

 

Bold Faith

Giving

We give because God gave first. All that we have, or hope to have, comes from him. The Bible says that giving is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything. It teaches us to always put God first in our lives.

PastorRandy Craft

Randy Craft is a Southern California native. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from California State University, Fullerton, and studied at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. Before joining the Saddleback Newport Mesa team, Randy served for two years at Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee, as the Multisite Pastor of Community, leading the vision for small groups and local outreach. Prior to Cross Point, Randy spent 14 years on staff at Saddleback Church, serving in a variety of roles. He helped launch Saddleback’s first regional campus, Saddleback San Clemente, and spent 6 years on its staff. He later served for 2 years as Pastor of Local PEACE at Saddleback Lake Forest. Randy is passionate about helping people find their purpose in life and creating a safe place for those who are far from God. He believes the church is a place of hope and healing where everyone is welcome, because nobody’s perfect, and anything is possible. Randy married his college sweetheart, Megan, after meeting her at Saddleback’s College Ministry. They have three children: Kaden, Kaleiah, and Paisley Joy. Randy loves having fun outdoors and exploring with this family. He also loves the beach, running, sports, and food.
