Our Church Leadership

Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who are a part of our leadership.




                         Randy Gibbs - Pastor

Pastor Randy Gibbs is a born and raised Kansan, from Phillipsburg. He has a BA degree in Sociology from Dana College, a Lutheran College in Blair, Nebraska. He is a graduate of Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN and served St. Peter Lutheran Church in Byron, NE for 10 years before coming to serve Bethlehem in WaKeeney 30 years ago. He has been a Pastor with Prairie Faith Shared Ministry for the last 10 of those years.


On a personal note, he loves to play golf & bagpipes, and considers them almost as fun as Parish Ministry (or maybe they help make Parish Ministry more fun.) He loves good theological discussion and Bible study.  Pastor Randy doesn’t like driving miles and miles to attend boring meetings. He also doesn’t like pina colada’s or walks in the rain. He has a good sense of humor, although a bit on the offbeat English type side.
