Open Bible Leadership
We are blessed to have a leadership team who is truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bioographies of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.
Randy & Tami Brock
Randy and Tami Brock are graduates of Open Bible College in Des Moines, IA and have been in full-time ministry for 37 years. They have served churches in Rockford, IL Midland, SD, Rapid City, SD, Cedar Rapids, IA, and most recently at Victory Church in Lakeland, FL
Randy and Tami have three children: Daughter, Sheena and husband Nathan Newton along with their daughter, Arabella, live in Montgomery, AL. Tara, their youngest, currently lives in Orlando, FL. Many here in Rapid City will also remember their son Ryan who took his place in heaven in 2004 after a long battle with cerebral palsy.
Pastor Randy comes to us with a wealth of experience in large church settings in the areas of church administration, pastoral care, ministry development, community involvement, preaching/teaching, and leadership training with an extensive track record of influence in both Open Bible and the Assemblies of God. Both he and Tami have a deep love for people and are truly excited about their return to Rapid City and this great church. Their first Sunday will be November 3rd. Keep them in your prayers as they transition from Florida.
