Pastor Randy and Judy Bennett began their ministry here at Blue Water on June 18th, 2012. Pastor Randy is a graduate of Greenville College and Asbury Theological Seminary. He has been a pastor for 30 years, some of that time being in our East Michigan Conference. Their oldest daughter, Katie, is married with 2 beautiful girls and twin boys and lives here in Port Huron. Ameilia is 20 years old and is transitioning between high school and college.
Pastor's life verse reflects his heart's cry: "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:1-2
From Pastor Randy: A personal relationship with Christ is vital to living in today's world. "Life in Christ" means walking and talking everyday with the Lord, depending on God to meet "all our needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus." I can't imagine living life any other way.
