About Randy

Randy & Jaycene Morgan

Randy & Jaycene Morgan

I am the lead pastor at Covenant Life Assembly in Moore, Oklahoma.  We are not a large church, but we suck less than most larger churches.  I am the husband of Jaycene, a public school teacher (a woman much too good for me and she knows it), dad to my son, Ryan (also a public school teacher and coach) and daughter-in-law, Katrina, and grandfather to Emma (pictured) and the recently arrived, Rigley (pictured, although he appears to regret it).

I’m pretty sure I have slight cases of both Downs Syndrome and Alzheimers.  I have a room-temperature IQ but I love to learn.  I am passionate about the church, reading, and spending time with (mostly complaining to) people who care about me.  I enjoy Seinfeld, anything having to do with golf, and WILL own a Harley someday I finally got a bike!

  1. Dude, you’ve got the gift. You should write a book or something. You’re hilarious. Except the part about me being irritating. That part was… irritating.
    So work on that part, then share your Downszheimers wit with everyone.
    Thanks for the chuckle. And if I struggled with pride, I’m sure your words would have also been helpful.

  2. Stumbled on your website…love the title…i mock Joel Osteen’s this way a lot…THINGS UNSEEN by Mark Buchanan is one of my top books, also…keep blogging…your’s is a hilarious voice…from one obese 50+ guy to another.

  3. Again, Randy, keep your hilarious voice alive here. I just sent your wonderful line to my Pastor……”to my beloved church family: i could never have imagined one small group of people capable of engendering such affection and frustration simultaneously.”

  4. great insights on our crazy mode of operation in dealing with kingdom and all of us who are a part of said group, i am pleased to see you maintaining your almost sanity through this blog. put me on the mailing list

  5. Hi Randy, Thanks for the good word. Just wanted you to know there are many readers who just read. We don’t normally respond I think mainly because we have nothing really important to say. You’ll never know this side of heaven the lives you touch with your blog. Keep it up.

  6. Hey Randy!

    I was looking at your church website and saw your blog. I started reading your blog about your brother Gary and I’m hooked. I thought “I am going to tell him to write a book”. Well as I read your responses, I obviously am not the first who has thought this! It has been a long time since I have gotten to talk with you, but I just wanted to let you know that I sure do think highly of you and Jaycene! Congrats on the grandbaby…apparently Ryan grew up and I missed it! I ran across some old notes of Kendall’s the other day. It was notes from your sermons and a journal he was keeping during that time. He has told me how much he learned and grew under your leadership and I know he thinks a lot of you too!

    Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and I think I’ll start reading your blog! It is entertaininig, but more importantly, spiritually challenging! Thanks Randy!

  7. Hey Randy, I finally have checked out the “BLOG” . I think you have done an incredible job. It is really interesting and insightful. Oh and you and Jaycene are HOT!

  8. What up cuz? Me and my family are doing great down in Florida hope you and your’s are doing well also. Drop me a line and we will catch up

  9. I am sooo proud and thankful you and your beautiful wife are my pastors. Fans are right….you should write a book, you are funny.

  10. Okay, I’ll admit it. I stumbled across your blog by googling my own name. I love your blog and wished that I lived in Oklahoma (okay that’s a stretch) so I could go to your church. Your insight and openess are rarely discussed in the churches I’ve attended in my lifetime. Hopefully someday soon the words “real” and “Christian” will go together in the same sentence and we all won’t have to go around prentending we’re better than everybody else. What a novel concept.

  11. Randy, It seems to me that marriages are at best when each partner learns that their spouses are gifts from God. God has given us the game plan and the brains to implement it. You, also have blogged about the modern day problems affecting couples today. It has taken me decades to figure out that my and Marty’s troubles are no different than couples in Jesus time on earth, and to get off the “pity pot” and do what is best for our family. (even those kiddos who finally moved out) Now that we are charged with raising Mikayla (our grand daughter) and I wonder if we will make it through the next 26 years, when I know that God has promised we will. If couples
    would just go back to the days when they could not wait to see one another and commit themselves to the hard work of rebuilding their marriages, instead of “oops there goes another bump in the road, I quit this it isn’t fun” mentality the divorce rate would drop. When I was teaching I would survey my student’s home life and found that my students who lived with both parents daily were few and far between. Most lived with single mothers (through divorce or never had been married), or grand parents. Keep blogging on this issue as it is sorely needed.

  12. Hey Randy, I don’t even know how to find a blog or write one but I went looking for you and here you are! I’m very impressed how many people like you! I mean, we like you but we choose to come to your church and like you. It’s cool that people who don’t even know you like you. I never realized how much Jaycene looked like a famous person, is that Jennifer Aniston?

  13. Hey Randy,
    I’m so glad I found your blog! I attended CLA several years ago (I was Katrina’s roommate back then) when I was living in OKC. There are so many people there who made such a wonderful difference in my life whom I haven’t forgotten. I will definitely keep reading!

    This is your cousin calling.

    Hey man of God.

    What an awesome and fearful responsibility but with an overwhelming joy to be a Soldier of the Cross.
    Ah, yes the KING is truly on his way. I catch myself singing a little chorus a lot lately.
    It goes like this: I’m on my way to the Promised Land, I’m on my way to the Promised Land.
    You are on your way man of God. You are a soldier every day, preacher every day.

    Sound the warning, proclaim HIS love.
    REMEMBER: II Timothy 3:1- “In The Last Days Perilous Times Shall Come.”

    Yes man of God, I believe in YOU. Preach, Preach, Preach.

    Love you .

  15. I have to laugh sometimes when you kid about both of your readers because when I bring up my BLOGLINES RSS reader, I am the 1 subscriber to your insightful blog. Keep up the good work…you are wiser than you realize!!

  16. Hello Randy,
    First blog I have ever read. Well, not the first–when I have a computer problem, I have to have a live chat with a tech, I guess this could be a blog.
    Anyhow, always have a great visit with your mom and dad as we travel to Arizona. We look forward to coffee and lunch with them.
    Your dad is some guy, I just love him.
    Bye 4 now–Bob

  17. I just stumbled across your blog searching for “your best life later” as a title to my next blog. I like your articles and I think we’re both writing similar stuff. If you want to link to my site, I will do the same. Keep up the good work.

  18. i stumbled onto your blog from someone’s blogroll this morning, and i’m excited to continue reading! i’m stitches at the way you infuse humor into your writing. bless y’all!
    p.s. i’m also from oklahoma! high five.

  19. Hello,

    I am a pentecostal theologian fresh out of seminary. I appreciate your posts and your honesty in them. The hard thing to be now is public about being christian and what it means. I enjoyed your synopsis of the Duin book. I will have to pick it up when I have the money. Thanks for having a blog that various christian traditions can come and meet and congregate on issues that effect us all. Great blog. Keep up dealing with the tough questions.

  20. Hello Randy,

    I came across your website by typing in “your best life later.” I actually had gotten that phrase several months ago and am planning to write a book by that title (my husband and I are in the process of starting a Christian publishing company).

    I was excited to see those same words on your site. A few months ago, I wrote an article on one of our (my husband’s and my) websites (KennethCopelandBlog.com) entitled, “How to Go to Hell with a Positive Attitude.” Therein, I address the “Your Best Life Now” hype. I think you would enjoy it.

    Blessings to you and your family! Keep the faith. Donna Vermillion
