As a child (in 1974) John’s family began attending Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, where he attended elementary school, junior high and Calvary Chapel High School. Following graduation, he went on staff at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa as a janitor. During this time he met his wife, Michelle, an elementary school teacher at Calvary.
After four years on staff serving the children’s and high school ministries and in worship, John joined the staff at Calvary Chapel Vista, Calif.
In 1997, the Randalls set out on a venture of faith to the west coast of Florida to plant their first church—Calvary Chapel of Brandon. After 10 years of ministry in Florida, the Lord called the Randalls back to Southern California where John currently pastors at Calvary Chapel San Juan Capistrano. Pastor John has been serving in pastoral ministry for over 20 years and is the featured speaker on the Bible teaching radio program "A Daily Walk." He is known for his clear and relatable presentation of the Scriptures. John and his wife Michelle have four children.
