The Life Equipping Community (LEC) is a ChurchNEXT team dedicated to the holistic formation of Kingdom servants. The team stewards a dual focus. First, LEC helps emerging leaders start well. Second, LEC helps current vocational leaders and teams serving worldwide sustain well and flourish.

The Randalls pour their lives into future leaders in order to develop and deploy a new generation of pastors, church planters and missionaries who will serve to effectively advance God's Kingdom. The word LIFE is an acrostic that describes the distinctive emphasis of their formational environment.

  • L – Learning: Missional interns learn through rigorous study of God’s Word; through interactive discussions with world-class leaders; through reading the best available texts on the most strategic Kingdom subjects; and through being challenged to apply learning to their personal life, relationships and context of ministry.
  • I – Impartation: LEC fervently believes that the promise and provision of the power of the Holy Spirit is imperative for a fruitful life and ministry as a follower of Jesus. However, interns enter a formational process so that they each graduate with the genuine instinct to believe that God is always with them, and that something supernatural can take place at any moment when serving in Jesus’ name.
  • F – Formation: LEC interns receive personal spiritual formation and coaching to spur them on to a flourishing relationship with God and fruitfulness, according to their gifting and passion, for the advance of God’s Kingdom.
  • E – Experience: Without real life experiences in the trench of Kingdom service the formational process will be truncated at best. From the beginning interns daily have one foot in the trench of missional activity in their neighborhood, weekly on the streets of San Francisco, and serve in the context of at least one international missions trip per year.

LEC also offers coaching, consulting and equipping to leaders and teams currently in active service throughout the world. LEC trains and coaches on such themes as: Spiritual Formation (Solitude, silence, centering prayer, experiencing God’s presence, hearing God’s voice); Supernatural Ministry (Prophetic gifting, physical healing, inner healing, deliverance). It is such a joy and privilege for Bill and Jill to leverage their 30+ years of ministry experience to cheer others on toward intimacy with God and supernatural ministry expectation.

Because leaders—no matter what their ministry focus is—impact the spiritual growth of others, LEC is passionate about empowering leaders to help those they serve become more spiritually formed and grow in loving and knowing God more deeply and depending on Him more fully.
