Resigning, Redirecting, Retooling
Dr. Randy White
I have recently resigned from my position as Pastor of First Baptist Church of Katy, effective August 31, 2015.
After 12 years of wonderful ministry, Shelley and I have decided to move into a new direction of ministry. We will miss the day-to-day interaction with our loved ones at FBC, which is the aspect of this transition that is most painful.
This fall, I will begin a ministry of writing and publishing Christian resources from a dispensational perspective. I will continue the online work of Randy White Ministries, where I will teach the Bible to the many people who “stop by” on a daily basis. In addition, I will be starting a publishing company whose sole purpose is providing dispensational resources to individual Christians and to churches.
Dispensational theology has hit an all-time low in the modern church. It is almost impossible to find preachers who teach the Word from a strong, classical dispensational approach. Finding resources for those pastors and their churches to use is even more challenging. I hope to be able to meet this need.
I need your prayers and financial support now, more than ever. I will be devoting my time to this online ministry, and will, for the first time, begin to draw a small salary from Randy White Ministries, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Without the responsibilities of the pastorate of FBC, Katy, I hope to give my energies more fully into answering your questions, providing even more resources, and mentoring a new generation of Bible teachers.
Thank you for your prayers in this new venture. It is likely that we will move the “home-base” for this ministry from Katy to Taos, New Mexico, just miles from where I grew up, and less than a three-hour drive from Shelley’s parents. I look forward to ministering alongside old and new friends in New Mexico.
What you can expect in the future
I plan to continue all the aspects of Randy White Ministries, including the Thursday online Bible studies, articles, our retreat, and our regular trips to Israel. I look forward to being available for your questions, emails, and website issues. Further down the road, I will be writing my own Bible study resources, as well as publishing the new or out-of-print works of others. Each of these works will come from a strict doctrinal standard of dispensational theology.
I invite you to come along on this exciting journey of faith as Shelley and I jump into the unknown of the future. While it is frightening to leave a large church with a comfortable income, we believe that God will provide. Thank you for your friendship, your encouragement, and your prayers.
