family

Gary and Marjorie grew up together. They attended the same church and the same school. Their parents were close friends since their own teenage years.

weddingGary and Marjorie were married in 1961 and have three grown children; Stephanie, Michelle, and Gary Todd.

Gary has often spoken of Marjorie's rock solid support of all the ministries they have been involved with. He has often said, "I could not have done the things we have done without God's blessing and Marjorie's support."

As youth pastors, Gary and Marjorie gave themselves to helping kids in the 1960's and early 1970's. As their children were born, they simply took them along.

Before the children were actually teenagers themselves, they had been to youth camp, hung-out with the youth choir and had made friends with hundreds of teenagers in Salem, Oregon, North Hollywood, California, and Portland, Oregon.

They also grew up in the media. The family owned three Christian radio stations, two in Oregon and one in Alaska. when Gary hosted the Gary Randall Program, which originated at KOIN-TV in Portland, Oregon, the kids were frequent guests on the program with Marjorie hosting the program when Gary was traveling out of the country on a mission.

familyIn the later years of The Program, Stephanie became Associate Producer, then Producer of the show after graduating from Seattle Pacific University with a degree in both communications and history. She did her internship in the KOIN-TV newsroom and was awarded the Angel Award for her documentary on Teenage Suicide. Stephanie is married to Rick Wilson and they have one son, Brent Randall Wilson who is four.

Michelle became very interested in ventriloquism at an early age due to the performers she had seen as a young girl. After teaching herself the art, she began performing at many different venues, including several appearances at her own elementary school. When her parents gave her a "top-of-the-line" hand-made dummy named, "Hank," for her ninth birthday, Michelle took her art to the next level. Over the next few years she performed in dozens of churches and group events. She and Hank were guests on The Gary Randall Program and made regular appearances on the show, "Bumpety," a children's program which aired on KATU Channel 2 in Portland, Oregon. Michelle married Curt Green in 1989 and they have two daughters, Julia and Maria, both of whom are deeply involved in music and sports in both their school and church.

Gary Todd grew up spending several days each week at KOIN-TV. It is said that G. Todd knew more about the backstage aspects than anyone at KOIN-TV at that time. He too was often a guest with the family on The Gary Randall Program. G. Todd has said that spending personal time with Dr. Dobson and Shirley, Chuck Colson, Chuck Swindoll, Tim and Beverly LeHaye, Astronaut Jim Irwin, and many other outstanding leaders made an indelible imprint on his life.

In the family tradition, G. Todd hosted a daily radio program while a student at George Fox University. After receiving his degree in history, he took a position at Pamplin Music Corporation. As founder and vice-president of Red Hill Records, a Pamplin owned record label, G. Todd developed several outstanding new artists who have had marked success in the industry. In 2001, G. Todd resigned from Red Hill, moved back to Portland, Oregon, his beloved Northwest, promising he would travel back to Nashville or New York or Los Angeles as often as necessary, but would live in the Northwest.

In addition to walking beside Gary in their ministry, Marjorie has served as inspirational speaker to the school board in LaCanada, California and Oregon State Director of Missionettes, a statewide church organization for girls in which over 4,000 girls are involved in Oregon.

The great songwriter, Audrey Meier, once told Gary over a Sambo's Restaurant ten cent cup of coffee, "There is a time for everything. Recognize the seasons and the opportunities of your life and give God all you have."
