Randolph Koch has the heart of a shepherd and as a passionate servant-shepherd he has served God and His people in a variety of ministries since 1989. 

A Shepherd's Heart (Formerly known as RLK Ministries) began in 1996.

For many years he’s been a biblical “tent-maker” working full time for fortune 500 companies to support his family while serving in non-staff, staff pastoral and lay ministry capacities helping meet the spiritual and physical needs of others. 

He seeks to serve the church in and outside the four walls of the church meeting places around the world as well via the web through this website, various social media platforms, and in person. His goal is to teach and communicate God's Word to encourage, challenge, and build others up in their walk with the Lord and help lead people to Him. This also includes a commitment to encourage other servant-shepherds as well including church pastors and other staff members.

He has a passion for teaching and communicating God's Word and continually seeks to do so in a variety of ways, including but not limited to: the creation of encouraging and compelling biblical written, audio, and video resources. The resources he creates also include things such as devotionals, daily encouragements via social media, and the creation of other church related articles as well as communicating God's Word through messages via local church and school chapel services.

He is a published author and currently has several devotionals published in the YouVersion Bible App and Web site. (Please see the linked page above.) 

Randolph has a Bachelors in Ministry and practical experience and education in communications through Radio and Television Announcing and Production with on air experience. He's also an ordained and licensed minister.

He is a communicator and a proponent of social media, blogs, podcasts, vlogs as well as collaboration and other technology as a medium to communicate and connect with people in the local community and beyond.  

Randolph grew up in the Portland Metro area (Oregon) and currently lives in Knoxville, Tennessee with his wife of over 29 years. Together they have 5 dynamic "kids" / young adults all of which he refers to affectionately as his "Entourage".
