RANDY DUCKETT - SENIOR PASTOR
Randy S. Duckett , a native of Pleasant Grove, Alabama, became Pastor of Solid Rock Baptist Church in April of 2015. Randy married Tina Hames on August 21, 1993 while a student at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. They spent the first 21 years of their marriage and ministry in west Texas with all but two of those years in Odessa, Texas.
Randy and Tina have two boys, ages 17 and 14. They love sports and outdoor recreation, and are creative in connecting these passions with ministry.
After thirteen years of ministry visits and educational pursuits in the Pacific Northwest, doors opened for his family and ministry to move to Portland, Oregon. In March of 2015 his family packed up a lifetime of memories, said goodbye to family and friends, and began a new chapter in the Northwest after sensing God’s call to lead Solid Rock in their next chapter in ministry.
Randy enjoys spending time with his family, sailing, learning the art of fishing in the Pacific Northwest, and looks for as many opportunities as possible to spend time on the water. Baseball is a passion of the entire family, and opportunities to attend Major League games are taken as much as possible. He enjoys traveling, experiencing new cultures, and connecting with people from all walks of life.
Randy holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Samford University in Birmingham, AL. He earned his Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, and a Doctor of Ministry from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary’s Pacific Northwest Campus in Vancouver, WA.
In addition to pastoring Solid Rock, Randy spends time during the school year investing in leaders in the Portland metro area. He currently teaches the Biblical Studies track for Gateway Seminary’s Contextual Leadership Development program. The weekly encounter with church leaders is a highlight of his week. He enjoys the opportunity to connect his passion and knowledge of God’s word with his commitment and love for the church and the development of her leaders.
