Featured Speaker

Dr. G. Randall Speyer

Randy is no stranger to Monterey Bay Academy. He arrived on this campus in 1968 as a 6 years old child when his parents, Fred and Patricia Speyer, came to serve as faculty - Fred as Bible teacher and pastor and Patricia as a music teacher. Upon graduating from MBA in 1979, Randy went to Pacific Union College where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Theology. He later received his Master of Divinity from Andrews University and then went on to receive his Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary. Randy has worked within the Seventh-day Adventist church for 32 years. During his career he has served as youth pastor, associate pastor, and senior pastor in Southern California Conference, Northern California Conference, Chesapeake Conference, and is currently in Southeastern California Conference where he is the Care and Counseling Pastor at Loma Linda University Church. Regardless of where God has led Randy during his 32 years of service, MBA has always been a special place for him. Not only is this place his childhood home, but he met and married his wife, Jewel Tryon, here.
G. Randall Speyer, Worship Hour Speaker
Class of 1979
