Together From Your Pastor

Dear Church Family,

 

I am excited to share that by recommendation of the Personnel Team, and endorsed by the Deacon body, Randy Poe has been selected to serve as our new Business Administrator.

 

Many of you know that Randy has served as our Missions Associate for the last three years. During his tenure, he has coordinated our extensive mission efforts through Go Love Tell. Under Randy’s leadership, Dawson opened an English Language Center in the world’s largest Muslim country, established financial and ministry relationships with multiple churches in Maine, and opened The Learning Center on Green Springs Highway in Birmingham. During his tenure, he has coordinated the work of 318 volunteers in Maine, 42 volunteers in Southeast Asia, and 237 volunteers in Birmingham.

 

In addition to his work with Go Love Tell, Randy and his wife, Monica, have been integral parts of our Hispanic congregation since they joined Dawson in 2003. Randy has served as the volunteer student minister in that congregation for 13 years.

 

What you might not know about Randy is that prior to his tenure as our Missions Associate, he owned several small businesses in the areas of marketing and real estate. In addition to his ministry service, Randy brings a wealth of business knowledge and experience to his new ministry position as Business Administrator for the Dawson Family of Faith.

 

Please join me in praying for Randy and his family as he makes this transition to a new area of ministry and service.

 

Blessings,

 

Pastor David

Randy Poe To Serve As Business Administrator

On behalf of the Personnel Committee and with the endorsement of the Deacon body, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Randy Poe as our new Business Administrator.

 

Since 2015, Randy has served as Dawson’s Go Love Tell Missions Associate and has been responsible for the successful development, implementation, administration, and operation of Go Love Tell—a 5.6-million-dollar missions emphasis. In addition to his Go Love Tell responsibilities, Randy, who is fluent in Spanish, has been serving with Dawson’s Hispanic Ministry in various roles since 2005, including Student Minister and Hispanic Finance Committee Chairman.

 

Randy is an effective communicator and an excellent manager who is analytical and detail-oriented. He excels in strategic planning and forecasting and brings a special understanding of church operations and ministry purpose. In 1994, Randy received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Samford University. Shortly thereafter he rose to the position of National Sales Manager for an advertising company and later opened his own event marketing firm. In addition, Randy has used his experience in the business world, as well as his extraordinary work ethic, to run successful real estate businesses of his own.

 

Randy grew up as a missionary kid in Chile, and met his wife, Monica, while they both were attending Samford. Randy and Monica have five children: Carla, Ferrah, Jordan, Jessie, and Zander. The entire family is active in the Vestavia Hills community. Randy and his family continue to participate in mission projects beyond Go Love Tell and have served many times in countries such as Ecuador, Honduras, Nepal, and Nicaragua.

 

In addition to the attributes listed above, Randy is uniquely qualified for this position because of his heart for God and for sharing the Gospel. Randy was licensed to Gospel Ministry in January 2011 at Dawson and ordained in January 2015.

 

Please join us in welcoming Randy to his new ministry role and his new responsibilities as Business Administrator.
