Hey there, I'm
The author and pastor behind Greatheart’s Table. I currently pastor Covenant Presbyterian Church in Oviedo, Florida and teach preaching as a visiting lecturer at the Orlando campus of Reformed Theological Seminary.
My years of pastoral experience have fed my concern for the ordinary pastor. Pastors, particularly those of smaller churches, long to be validated and encouraged but are often instead beaten down by the enormous and unreachable expectations of modern Christian culture. I began writing and producing Greatheart’s Table to provide an alternative narrative that encourages pastors, especially those in smaller churches, to be comfortable in their pastoral skin. There is great value in simply being a pastor and many pastors, and those who care for them, need to be reminded of that.
Prior to Greatheart’s Table, my writing has appeared in a variety of venues, from the family worship guide As for My House to the web site of The Gospel Coalition. In 2020 Christian Focus Publications published my book Something Worth Living For, a presentation of historic Christianity based upon the content of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. I blog, though less frequently these days, at RandyGreenwald.com.
I grew up in a small town outside Cincinnati, Ohio. After graduating from Michigan State University I taught seventh-grade English for three years before attending and graduating from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. I pastored a church on Florida’s gulf coast for twenty-five years before being called to my current church in 2010. I am married to Barb and we have been blessed with six children and an innumerable multitude of grandchildren.
