As a professional speaker, my goal is to help you make your event a success. I know that one of the keys in having a successful, memorable event is finding a quality speaker who matches what you need, will relate well to your audience, and deliver the content your group needs. To help you do that, this page contains an overview of what I have to offer, along with a taste of what you can expect, all in one place. You can click on the links below to take you directly to the relevant sections.
Here’s what you can expect from me:
- Prompt, professional replies to your phone calls and email messages.
- A personal phone consultation with me prior to your event, so I can better understand how I can best serve you and your audience.
- An announcement about your event on my blog and social media channels. (This assumes that your event is open to the public and you want additional visibility for it.)
- A prompt follow-up communication after the event, to make sure I exceeded your expectations. (I also want to know how you think I can improve.)
Randy Crane is a highly-regarded speaker, presenting engaging and thought-provoking messages on a variety of topics. He has a natural rapport and connection with audiences that makes them relate well to him, engage in his presentations, and come away with a fresh understanding of the subject at hand.
As host of the “Stories of the Magic” podcast, Randy is a natural interviewer and makes those he chats with comfortable enough to open up. He uses these same gifts as a life and personal development coach.
Randy grew up in the church, but—like many others—wandered away from the faith for a time in high school. Now, he is an ordained minister, with both a Bachelor’s degree in Church Ministry (emphasis in Preaching) and a Master’s degree in Congregational Leadership from Hope International University in Fullerton, CA. He has been preaching and teaching since 1998, and has been a drummer/percussionist on church worship teams since 1992. He married his wonderful wife Faye in November of 2000.
While life is rooted and grounded in Christ, Randy also seeks to know the beauty of God’s creation, and of the creations of other people. As a result, he’s an avid reader—especially of science fiction & fantasy, which he also enjoys in movies and TV—an Annual Passholder at both Sea World & Disneyland, and a Disneyland history enthusiast. He has swam with bottlenose dolphins & played with grey wolves (yes, real wolves), and is an amateur photographer. He also enjoys the beauty in math and science, and much more. Currently, Randy is combining many of his passions into a book using Disneyland as a framework and series of illustrations for the Christian Life.
It is Randy’s desire that God uses him to bring people to a greater understanding of the Truth in a way that doesn’t merely sound good, but that makes a real, deep, lasting difference in their lives.
- “Faith and the Magic Kingdom” – Discovering and exploring the lessons and illustrations of the Christian life found in the stories, attractions, and designs of the original Magic Kingdom, Disneyland.
- “Who Does God Think You Are?” – Our view of God, His view of us, and how those help us define–and experience–success and significance.
- “Princess Perspectives” – Whether you’re facing fear, insecurity, or are just feeling “stuck,” a change in perspective can make all the difference. The stories of Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Belle as told at Disneyland will bring that fresh perspective you need.
“Randy has the unique ability to combine solid content, catalytic insights and clear passion every time he speaks. I never come away from one of his presentations without a page full of takeaways.” – Larry Winger, CEO of Provision Ministry Group
“A very talented drummer, writer and speaker. I heard some of the most thought-provoking sermons ever while attending the church in Del Amo where Randy served as pastor.” – Carlyn O.
“I just heard Randy deliver a message in our company’s monthly chapel, and what I heard was someone not only speaking from the Word of God, but speaking with personal conviction. His message moved us all from knowledge to understanding to action, motivated not by guilt or achievement, but by a better understanding of who God is and who we are. I trust that God will be using Randy mightily for His kingdom in the years ahead!” – Alan C., Provision Ministry Group chapel coordinator
“Analytical without being anal. Able to know he is right without being cocky or arrogant, and even willing to learn from the exchange. I guess that means he is willing to become more right. But again not with arrogance.” – Tyson B.
“Randy is an amazing conversationalist, has a memory like an elephant, is a fantastic listener, a quiet observer, a supportive friend and one of the best speakers I know!” – Amber P.
“Kind and humble, does not flaunt his intelligence, yet he is exTREMEly so… great conversationalist, he does not listen with the intent of what HE will say next, he listens to understand and share…. amazing friend… more than anything, he loves and follows Jesus PLUS his words match his actions…” – Robyn B.
“The first thing you should know about Randy is that he is madly in love with God. Always has been, always will be. He is not however, a ‘religious wacko’. He’s smart, he’s reasonable, he’s playful, he’s respectful and he is incredibly optimistic. Don’t expect him to keep a record of wrongdoings or talk down to people. It isn’t going to happen. You are going to want to go to an amusement park with him at some point and when you do you will have a great time because I guarantee you, he will be having a great time. If you need a spiritual advisor seek him out. He has some encouragement for everyone. Even an atheist like me.” – Lisa F.
