Founder and President Randy Smith

Dr Randy Smith is the President and Founder of YMI.

Randy served for 30 years as a local church youth pastor in 3 churches between 1970 and 2000. His first ministry church in Ohio had only 90 members, while his last church had an attendance of over 9,000 and more than 1500 students.

Randy has taught Youth Ministry courses at 5 Schools in the U.S. and at seminaries in the countries of Kenya, Tanzania, Ukraine, Mexico, Cuba, and Malaysia. Most recently (2000-11), he served as associate professor of youth and missions, and associate director of the International Center for Youth and Family Ministry at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Though Randy has always led YMI’s ministry, he now dedicates his full-time service to YMI as its president.

Randy started YMI in 1990 after conducting a youth ministry training seminar in Kenya Africa where he saw 26 nationals surrender to the call to youth ministry and subsequently request training…. and the rest is history.

Randy is married to Lynn, and they have 3 sons and 5 grand children.
