New Pastor at Kuna Church

June 01, 2006 | Aileen Sox

The Kuna Church welcomed their new pastoral team, Randy and Suzette (Owens) Maxwell, in January.

Before becoming the pastor of the Kuna Church, Maxwell served as the creative director for advertising at Pacific Press Publishing Association in Nampa, Idaho. He is an author, speaker and the founder of If My People Pray Ministries, through which he conducts prayer and revival seminars across North America and internationally. Randy’s six books include If My People Pray, Bring Back the Glory, 5 Steps to Christlike Living, and Let Not Your Heart be Troubled.

“Randy’s emphasis on prayer suits Kuna perfectly,” says Nick Voth, head elder. “Prayer and kids are two things we really focus on at Kuna.” For example, on Easter weekend Kuna members went on a prayer walk around the church’s neighborhood, praying with people and distributing copies of the book Taking a Stand for the Ten Commandments. Kuna member Scott Cady participated with his daughters and says, “The prayer walk was significant for my family on two counts. First, we made new friends for Jesus. Second, my girls came away wide-eyed (and intrigued) at the thought of God using them to share His love.”

Suzette is the administrative assistant at the Caldwell Adventist Elementary School. The Maxwells have three daughters and one son-in-law. They’ve lived in Nampa, Idaho, since leaving Southern California in 1987.
