Randy Hinshaw

Bement Lead Pastor

Randy Hinshaw has been an educator most of his career, teaching in both public and private schools, and has served as a school administrator for the past ten years. His service on the Crossroads elder board led to many prayers about starting a church in Bement. Randy thought he would be an elder helping with a new church plant, but God must have had other plans.  He took on the campus pastor role in June of 2015, and Crossroads Bement was launched on October 18th. He absolutely loves his church family!

Randy and Jeanine enjoy time with their adult children Rachel and Ethan, and their 13-year-old, Eli. They became grandparents last year and love spending time with Miss Lilly.

Randy enjoys golf, riding his super sweet vintage motorcycle, spending special times away with Jeanine and listening to gangsta rap (just checking to see if anyone is really reading this.)
