Randy Maxwell Expands Leadership Role

Washington Conference is pleased to introduce Randy Maxwell as vice president for administration.

“Throughout the pandemic, our team saw Randy Maxwell demonstrate great spiritual leadership through prayer ministry, mentoring and church planting,” said Doug Bing, Washington Conference president. “I look forward to his continued spiritual leadership with our pastors, educators, members and communities in western Washington.”

Maxwell first came to Washington Conference in 2016 to pastor the culturally diverse and vibrant Adventist community of faith in Renton. He additionally served as prayer ministries coordinator for the conference and is nurturing a church plant in Issaquah.

During the pandemic, Maxwell organized Faith Over Fear, a teleconference prayer time. He participated in pastoral accountability prayer calls, planned a virtual week of prayer for camp meeting, provided multiple prayer conferences for local churches, wrote curriculum for Marriage Revival Challenges and encouraged families to "Alter the Altar" through worship times.

Previously, Maxwell pastored in Kuna, Idaho, for ten years. While there, he served as Idaho Conference prayer coordinator and as a member of the conference evangelism and church planting committee.

Maxwell also has 18 years of experience serving as an editor and creative director for advertising at Pacific Press Publishing Association in Nampa, Idaho.

Maxwell is an author, conference speaker and the founder of If My People Pray ministries, through which he has presented prayer and revival seminars across North America and internationally. He is completing a master of ministry degree from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University.

His library of published books include: If My People Pray, Bring Back the Glory, On Eagles’ Wings, Five Steps to Christ-like Living, Boot Camp for the Last Days and Closing Prayers. He is also a teaching pastor for seven DVD series.

Maxwell and his wife, Suzette, who serves as associate vice principal for student life at Auburn Adventist Academy, value their family time with three adult daughters, their son-in-law and two grandchildren — while they remember a grandchild who is sleeping in Jesus until the resurrection.

Besides his family, Maxwell’s passions are prayer, making the Word plain and practical in our everyday lives and leading people to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.

“I am humbled at the opportunity to work alongside our administrative team to equip and inspire the members of the Washington Conference to be the church and advance the Kingdom of God,” Maxwell said. “My prayer is that we seek the Holy Spirit as never before, calling on God for the boldness and creativity in mission, demanded by a world that has forever changed. The need is great. The key is prayer. The time is now.”
