Wayne Randolph

Wayne Randolph gets called Rabbi even though he’s not a Jew. It may be the beard. Or it may be the depth of knowledge of 1st century judaism, and one particular rabbi, Jesus. This professional Christian man survived the life of a PK and has since worked in international missions, Christian education, pastoral roles, and — most notably — waitstaff at the fine establishment we all know and love as Red Lobster. Wayne is a dynamic educator and lifelong learner…
