Partnership Manager, Central Texas
Randy joined PCA as a staff member in 2019 and currently works as the Partnership Manager covering Central Texas. As the Partnership Manager for PCA-Central Texas, he is responsible for prospecting, developing and closing partnership opportunities. Key in this process is demonstrating the value of PCA programs for youth sport organizations and schools, resulting in an increased PCA partnership base for PCA-Central Texas.
Prior to joining PCA as a staff member, Randy served over 10 years as a Trainer for the PCA in the North Texas, Houston, and Central Texas Chapters, and spent one year serving as a Lead Trainer in the North Texas Chapter.
As a scholarship athlete, Randy played Division 1 basketball at Rice University, where he earned a B.A. in Behavioral Science. After graduating from Rice, he earned a Th.M. with a focus on Christian Education and Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. Much of his work life has been invested in ministry and education. He developed and taught social-emotional learning and life skills classes on the high school level while also coaching both girls and boys basketball at both the middle and high school levels.
In Colorado, where he developed and taught social-emotional learning and life skills courses at Aspen High School, he coached both middle school girls and boys basketball moving to the high school girls varsity team that he coached a total of 10 years, taking two different teams to the Colorado Class AAA state tournament. In teaching and mentoring coaches and parents, Randy is now putting his dual masters’ degrees in theology and counseling psychology to good use at PCA.
Making a difference in people’s lives has been the driving force in Randy's life. Seeking to be a good steward of his life experience and background (all the highs and the lows) motivates him to pursue and nurture meaningful relationships where he might have the privilege of making a difference. He still enjoys coaching and is committed to being a life-long learner.
