Lynda Randle was born and raised in Washington, D.C. Growing up in the D.C. inner–city culture, Lynda experienced a pain and anguish rarely imagined by the majority of Christian America. Since giving her life to the Lord Jesus Christ, He has used the scars of her youth to bring a distinct depth and richness to her ministry. Her life is the fulfillment of the promise of Isaiah; "...Bestow on them the crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." – Isaiah 61:3, NIV
Anyone who knows Lynda will find themselves marveling at her bottomless supply of enthusiasm. Whether ministering to a large congregation, or one–on–one to a runaway teen, her joyful dedication to the Lord is always a source of encouragement and infectious catalyst for growth.
In November 1989, Lynda married Mike Randle of Kansas City, Missouri. Mike's background growing up on the streets of Kansas City's inner–city and his dramatic conversion experience give him a powerful voice to youth who find themselves in the same desperation he knew. The Randles enjoy the various occasions where they are able to minister together, Mike speaking and Lynda singing. Lynda and Mike have been blessed with two precious daughters, Patience and Joy.
In 2008, Lynda founded “A Woman After God?s Own Heart” conferences. Reaching hundreds of women through this two-day event, Lynda?s conferences offer dynamic speakers, outstanding singers and musicians, Christian comic relief, sacred arts performances and incredible testimonies. In 2011, these conferences take on international markets as word spread across the oceans. One remarkable thing about Lynda's ministry is her ability to quickly build rapport with audiences and "draw them out" regardless of the type of group. In fact, her message and music are truly cross–cultural. This is proven over and over through her individual performances and the women?s conferences.
