Church Consulting and Revitalization
“Empowering churches to move forward in expansion spiritually, constructively and practically”
How many times over the many years of my ministry, I felt stuck or frustrated, praying for God to send help and guidance. This is why I have created “From the Wooden Desk.” Some of the greatest lessons and insights I gained were across the desk from a mentor, coach or another pastor. I believe this is the reason God has called me to consultation and revitalization.
Thank you for taking the time to consider partnering with, "From The Wooden Desk." We are here to serve churches by providing new and rejuvenating perspectives, processes, and plans to enable ministries to touch lives and reach communities. We believe that through consultation and training, both spiritually and practically, we can help churches reach their potential to increase God’s Kingdom.
Randy & Kathy Wooden
My name is Ransom (Randy) Wooden and I am excited to introduce Church Rejuvenation by From The Wooden Desk. After 36 years of leadership and successful pastoral ministry, I am launching a new ministry to help pastors and churches revitalize and refresh.
I have been married to my wife, Kathy, for 43 years, have two children and five grandchildren. They are all the joy of my life.
I have had the privilege to pastor, plant churches, plant church campuses, and oversee and work with many teams and staff members. I developed a leadership center where we trained leaders and set forth over 80 ministers to go out and begin their ministry. Internationally, I have had the honor to provide multiple conferences for pastors and leaders. I am now serving as a "Certified Church Consultant".
My greatest joy in ministry is working with pastors and churches. I want to help the leaders gain fresh perspective and understanding of their church health, culture and community. I look forward to partnering with you to provide a new set of eyes, wisdom and honest assessment to provide recommendations, helpful resources, and practical tools to increase your effectiveness and bring new life to your leadership team and church.
My heart is that God will use my life to bring about transformation in churches and their leadership team.
