Randy and Suzette Maxwell
Since January 1, 2016, Randy and Suzette Maxwell have served as the pastoral couple for the Renton Seventh-day Adventist Church, a culturally diverse, and vibrant community of faith in Renton, Washington (home of the Seattle Seahawks). Their previous pastorate was in the Idaho Conference at the Kuna Seventh-day Adventist church—a post they held for ten years. Randy also served as Idaho Conference Prayer Coordinator, and as a member of the conference Evangelism and Church Planting Committee.
Prior to this Randy served the church for 18 years as an editor, and the Creative Director for advertising at Pacific Press Publishing Association in Nampa, Idaho.
Randy is an author, conference speaker, and the founder of IF MY PEOPLE PRAY MINISTRIES, through which he has presented prayer and revival seminars across North America and internationally. Randy’s seven books include If My People Pray, Bring Back the Glory, On Eagles’ Wings, and Boot Camp for the Last Days. Randy is also teaching pastor for eight DVD series, and has made several guest appearances on 3ABN.
Originally from Los Angeles, Randy and his high-school sweetheart, Suzette, will celebrate their 38th wedding anniversary this December. In her capacity as administrative assistant at Auburn Adventist Academy, Suzette is assistant to the principal, and chief “air-traffic controller” for staff, teachers, parents and students. Prior to this she served as Communications Assistant for Washington Conference. In Idaho Suzette was administrative assistant for the Caldwell Adventist Elementary School—a position she held for 15 years.
The Maxwells have three adult children, one son-in-law, and three adorable grandchildren who are the loves of their lives (one sleeps in Jesus awaiting the resurrection). Besides his family, Randy’s passions are prayer, making the Word plain and practical in our everyday lives, and leading people to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. The motto that drives his life and ministry is: “The need is great. The key is prayer. The time is now.”
