Recommendations

"John's ability to energize a group of people with his congenial personality makes him an instant hit when leading a church body in worship. I have witnessed the same energizing warmth and charisma come across regardless of the size of the audience. John's desire is to seek to serve His risen Savior and Lord with his music. In writing this letter, I hope to persuade you of one thing; to arrange a meeting with John and see for yourself his heart for God. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be interested in seeing God work through John's music as he utilizes his gift of song to God's glory."
- Jim Leach, Senior Pastor - Canton Community Bible Church 

“I have had the opportunity to work with John on multiple occasions and I admire the love and genuineness that he shows to everyone he meets. His smooth rich vocals and encouraging lyrics make this guy the whole package."
- Tommy Brandt, 5-Time Inspirational Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year

"John and I have met at several different events but we became friends once I was able to spend time with him and really got to know him. John sang at our Homecoming and Revival this past May and God really used him. He is a talented singer and songwriter and I'm glad to call him my friend. I ask you to prayerfully consider allowing John to bring glory to God in music and song for your church. Please contact me if you have any questions."
- Brian McWhorter, Pastor - Wildwood Baptist Church
 
"It's always good to see new artists and ministers come forward and use their gifts and talents for God. Meeting and getting to know John is one of those rare opportunities to see so many different giftings all in one man. John is a talented singer, songwriter and performer, but that's only the beginning...most importantly John is highly gifted in the area of ministry to people. This combined with a talented voice and musicianship would be an asset to any church function or ministry event."
- Justin Todd Herod, Multi-Award Winning Christian Singer, Songwriter and Speaker. 

"John is someone who walks the walk and talks the talk! His humble demeanor, mixed with his passion to lift up the name of Jesus is not only notable, but extraordinary. Whenever Branded has had the chance to be in ministry with him, it has always been enjoyable, fun and Kingdom minded. It is a privilege to minister along with him."
- Branded, 4-Time Inspirational Country Music Association Due of the Year

"With great joy, I fully recommend to all the wonderful ministry of my dear friend and fellow evangelist, John Randolph. Brother John is a gifted singer, musician and songwriter.  I have known him for many years; we have served together in various revival meetings, concerts and other events.  He sings every year at our Campmeeting in Canton.  Because of his love for Jesus, Brother John is so positive, pleasant and always has a big smile on his face.  I know him to be a great Christian.  He will be a blessing to any church service or concert.  You and your church will love Brother John Randolph"
- Dennis Erwin, Evangelist, Preacher and Father of The Erwin Family

"We have had the pleasure of hosting John Randolph several times at Caney Creek Cowboy Church. He is an amazing man of God and he brings the presence of the Lord in his music and his testimony. Our congregation loves his heartwarming style of music and his personality. I would highly recommend John as a musical guest at any church or other venue."
- Mark Grimes, Pastor - Caney Creek Cowboy Church

"I have been blessed to know John as a friend and a singer of the Gospel for some time now, both of which have been positive additions to my life. He is a true gentleman and professional at what he does. Above the obvious talent is the anointing that warms the room wherever God leads him to minister. You would be part of one of God's great plans by opening the door to this man of God and my friend, John Randolph." 
- Casey Rivers, Dove Award Nominated Artist and Lead Singer for Canton Junction

"This spring Legendary Baptist Church had its annual spring revival and John Randolph led the worship through music. John is extremely talented and very personable. He did a great job leading the congregation and delivering the message through song. John and I met together each night and prayed for the revival. He is truly a man of God. In my opinion John Randolph would be an asset to worship in any church.”
- Mike Adalian, Senior Pastor - Legendary Baptist Church  
 
"John truly has a love for the Lord and a desire to honor and please Him in all that he does. You will never have to worry that John will just “put on a show” or “perform.” His heart of worship is too sensitive for that to happen. All that he does is toward a goal of moving into the presence of God and honoring Him in and through his music. Without a doubt, I am confident that you and your people will be pleased by allowing John Randolph to minister in your church. He is a man of integrity and you will be blessed as he leads you and your people to the throne of Grace."
- Dr. Bob Price, Senior Pastor - Cornerstone Baptist Church - Terrell, Texas 
 
"John is a man of character who has a genuine love and passion for the Lord Jesus. John has a ministry and musical ability which can only be a gift from God. I would highly recommend him and his ministry to serve at your church. God has not only given John a phenomenal voice but more importantly a heart to reach people for Christ through the ministry of music."
- Ronald Cantrell, Senior Pastor - Main Street Baptist Church, Grand Saline, Texas
 
“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for giving your time and talents to Coming Together 2012 this past weekend and for singing at Golden Methodist Church on Sunday. You have a true God-given gift and you are using it for His glory. We were blessed to have you and your daughter with us. I would strongly recommend you to any church or organization wanting a good Christian man to minister at any function. I hope we are lucky enough to have you come back to Golden in the future. Thank you for making our lives brighter and letting Christ’s light shine through you. I pray that God will continue to bless your family and your ministry.”
- Rev. Jim Pickens, Golden United Methodist Church  

Press Recommendations

"Smooth. Gaither Vocal Band smooth. That’s how I describe John Randolph. The difference is that he brings it in a different package. This is Top 40 Radio meets Gospel. In my youth, nothing got my attention quicker than a trip to the water. If I had my preference, I would be on the water instead of eating. The title track to this CD takes me back to that youth. Soakin’ Up The Son is an incredible title track, and it’s not alone. The Man I Am Today is the next cut that just hits home…there are others as well. The Great Adventure, God Has His Reasons, Drifter. Each one has its own message and each one is also a part of something bigger. He even adds a little Texas to Shall We Gather At The River. This review was easy to do, and a pleasure. You all know how I work the ratings, so here we go. 14 out of 15 stars. That’s only because we all know there is only one perfect thing in the world. This is really, really a great CD."
- Greg Edwards, Southern Gospel Magazine 
 
"Just finished listening to "Soakin' Up The Son" by artist John Randolph and WOW!!! This is an awesome project from start to finish. Everything about this album is top notch from the artwork, layout, production quality, vocals, etc Some of my favorites are "God Has His Reasons" written by John Randolph, "I'm Your Man" written by John Steed and "The Man I Am Today" which is also written by John Randolph. Folks, if you're looking for some new Christian Country music then this album definitely needs to be in your CD collection! Great job John!!!"
- Doug Hudson, God's Country Promotions/Country Gospel Radio 
 
"John Randolph is one of those rare finds in this industry. His voice has such clarity and it portrays the pureness of heart that God has given him. Recently John sang for us at the World Famous Nashville Palace during our Christmas Holiday Showcase and everyone loved his performance. His smile is also infectious with the joy of the Lord. This is definitely one artist to keep your eyes fixed for kingdom advancement."
