Dr. Randall Parker, Pastor Emeritus

Pastor Parker was born October 17, 1946 in Avery County, North Carolina. Raised in a Christian home, he received Christ at an early age. He attended high school and graduated in 1965. He married Carolyn Johnson in 1967.

He has since earned his bachelor, masters, and doctorates degree, while also serving on several board of directors of different ministries. Called to preach in 1979 he started a church in North Carolina and led that congregation for 12 years.

Coming to Bethel in 1988, the church has experienced the blessing of the Lord in a wonderful way. The 25 acre campus is home to the growing congregation and the ministry reaches around the world. Pastor Parker’s family (two daughters, one son and 7 very special grand children) all actively serve the Lord. Many doors have opened for Pastor Parker and he has been used in conferences for many years.

On May 12th, 2019 after 31 years of pastoring Bethel Baptist Church,
Dr. Parker announced his retirement. His leadership has brought to this congregation many years of physical and spiritual growth. We are eternally
grateful for the wisdom he has instilled in us from the word of God,
and for the love he has shown us as a godly shepherd.

Dr. Parker became Pastor Emeritus on May 26th, 2019,
and since then has been marvelously used to enrich churches across America.
