Before entering the gospel ministry, he was ordained as a deacon at the Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Centreville, VA in 1996. Rev. Randolph submitted himself to the call of God on his life and was licensed to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in August 1998 at the Cole Street Missionary Baptist Church in Marietta, GA.

He was ordained to evangelism in March 2001 by the New Weeping Mary Missionary Baptist Church in Chesapeake, VA where Rev. John C. Smith was his pastor. Rev.

Lebanon Baptist Church in Norfolk, VA and was installed in January 2002. In December 2004 as a result of job relocation, Rev. Randolph and his family moved to Metro Atlanta and joined Union Missionary Baptist Church. He served UMBC as an Associate Minister beginning in 2004, under the pastorate of Rev.

In March the church voted to extend the call to him to serve as the 11th pastor of UMBC since 1894.
The Lord has richly blessed Pastor Randolph and his family. He received his Master of Divinity degree from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union University in 2005. His greatest joy is being married to his college sweetheart, Adrienne for 31 years. Their joy has been made complete sharing as the proud parents of Danielle, Tre, Alexis and Jaylen.
More than all the above, he loves the Lord; he loves people and has been born again!
