After serving in the United States Marines he graduated from High Point University with B.S in Business Administration in 2004. He is a 2010 graduate from Wesley Biblical Seminary with a Masters of Divinity concentrating in Theology. After serving in different Pastoral roles, from Young Adult Pastor to Senior Pastor throughout North Carolina, Randy along with his wife Melissa and their two children, Kayli and Nathan, moved to Myrtle Beach in 2008 to plant a church. In 2012, God opened other doors through Evangelistic Ministry which led Randy and his family to preach in many different churches and see people’s lives changed and transformed by encountering Jesus. For fun, Randy and his family enjoy participating in Obstacle Course Races like Spartan and Battlefrog.
Two of Randy’s favorite verses are: Philippians 1:6 – “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” And Romans 12:1 – “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.”
Randy and Melissa have a love for the next generation and are excited about being a part of Waterbrook and watching God grow the Student Ministry.

She moved to this area from Indian Trail, NC in 2004 where she had a background in land development for over 20 years. She has a strong background in planning, organization and promotion. She came to know Christ in 1996 and through many different experiences God led her into different ministry opportunities from serving as Chairperson for Angel Tree Ministries, a branch of Prison Fellowship in Union County, NC as well as director for the Women’s Missionary Union for Shiloh Baptist Church in Monroe, NC and the Union Baptist Association. She currently serves on the Board for the North Strand Housing Shelter, on the W.O.W. (Women of Waterbrook) Leadership Team, as well as Advisory Board for Horry County Public School System.

DortieAnn Goll is our Church Secretary DortieAnne and her husband Bob came to Waterbrook in November, 2010 as they began “snow birding” in their retirement and became partners in February 2012. They have three children, Christopher, Jennifer and Keleigh and six grandchildren. DortieAnne was born in Corning, New York and had a career in the banking industry that spanned 42 years, having experience in many areas that included teller, new accounts, branch manager and finally a Mortgage and Consumer Loan officer. She has found that being a loan officer for 25 years is where God really prepared her best for serving the Waterbrook family as the church secretary because of the fast pace, constant gear-changing and all the personalities she worked with as a lender and co-worker. But it is here, she says, is where she has found her joy in serving God’s family to be the most rewarding and calls it her “Holy Privilege” to be in the church office. In her former church, she was involved in the women’s ministry (WOWW – women of worship and warfare), and prayer ministry. DortieAnne is also the current facilitator of WBCC Prayer ministry.
