Gary Randle has spent his life serving God. In 1989 Gary Randle and Noble Crawford co-founded Hope Farm. Hope Farm is a leadership program guiding at-risk boys to become Christ-centered men of integrity that will be leaders in their families, churches, communities and the nation.

What Gary has done doesn’t accurately describe who he is. He is complicated. He has many Gary-isms. He is a thinker, dreamer, and always imagines more. He is not scared of a “no” but sees “no” as an open door and an opportunity for a kingdom “yes” He is a visionary.”To see photos of Gary and to learn more about his ministries, please visit our website at https://www.wonderfultotell.com/episodes/2019/5/11/gary-randle-god-dont-waste-nothin
