Randy and Linda Spacht
In 1994, OMS named Randy vice president of Human Resources for the worldwide missionary organization. In this position, he was responsible for placing personnel where their gifts and experience could best be expended in the mission’s goal of reaching the nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In 1999, Randy began to serve as international regional director for Latin America. In that position, he assisted field and church leaders with strategic decisions and troubleshooting. Linda served in secretarial positions in several divisions of OMS.
In 2005, OMS asked Randy to serve as director of International Ministries, and then in 2007, he became executive director of International Ministries. In this position, he is responsible for all OMS ministries overseas. Randy does that by serving, equipping and leading OMS missionaries in the world of OMS. He serves by finding answers to missionaries’ questions and trouble-shooting problems that arise. He equips through sharing God’s Word wherever he goes. He leads by confronting personal problems when they crop up, challenging ministries to new possibilities and helping focus a ministry’s attention on what is truly important.
Linda currently aids the Development Department by contacting donors and providing the necessary behind-the-scenes support without which organizations cannot survive.
The Spachts are graduates of Asbury College (now Asbury University). Randy earned a Master of Arts degree in religion from Asbury Theological Seminary, and he has done postgraduate studies in New Testament at Wycliffe College, Toronto. They have four adult children and eight grandchildren.
