Pastors Remember A Fallen GIANT

Christopher C. Thompson


drstaffordA GIANT of a man in terms of physical stature and ministry experience. His big booming voice proclaimed the providence of a big powerful God.

Dr. Randolph P. Stafford has served as Conference Adventist Youth Director and He was also Union Ministerial Director and Division Director of Church Growth. He has pastored over 31 churches throughout the United States and baptized over 24,000 people during his 42 years of ministry. Pastor Stafford is the founder and director of Directional Relationships (DR). He has conducted marriage and family counseling sessions and has been the guest speaker of colleges, universities, churches, and training conferences worldwide. He was also the Speaker and Director for the award-winning A Closer Walk, radio program for many years.

He leaves to cherish his legacy, his wife, Dr. Debrah Wright Stafford, two children, April Stafford Rolle, Esq.; Randolph Stafford II; and two grandchildren, Ashley Rolle and Jonathan Rolle II.

Yet, beyond those closest to him. He leaves a long list of ministers who seek to fill his big shoes and make giant steps toward God’s kingdom. Several pastors changed their profile photos to one of Elder Stafford as soon as the news of his passing was announced.They spent entire weekend remembering his legacy via countless social media posts. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
