Randy Burtis, born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, became a follower of Jesus at age fifteen. Since that time, his heart's desire has been for children's ministry. His goal is that each child would know they are loved, valued, and accepted; that teachers would be trained to fulfill their mandate to disciple kids; and that parents would be equipped to love their kids into God's kingdom.
To that end, he has traveled to hundreds of churches, spoken at hundreds of camps, and served as a children's pastor for twenty-five years. He currently serves in Canada's largest evangelical church, Centre Street Church, where he oversees kindergarten through fourth-grade children and their families. He is also a professional illusionist, having performed thousands of shows for over twenty-five years. Randy is married and has two daughters who joined his family through adoption.
