Mallory was born and raised in Cookeville, TN. She went on to graduate from Harding University in 2021 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management and a minor in Bible and Ministry. She has wanted to pursue full-time ministry since she was in high school and is extremely honored and humbled to be working at East Sunshine as the Family and Youth Minister. Mallory’s dream is to spread the love of Jesus everywhere she goes and to invite others on that journey as well. Some of Mallory’s favorite things to do are play video games (including Fortnite), read books, do puzzles, and spend time with others. Her favorite place she’s traveled to has been Australia!
Randy is a church guy – has been as long as he can remember. Randy grew up as a missionary kid in El Salvador and Honduras. Randy has degrees from Abilene Christian (BS Religious Education), Pepperdine (MS Ministry) and Northwestern University Grad School (D.Min.). With over 30 years of church experience, Randy has seen and done it all (some of it even worked!). He was a youth minister for 7 years, a preaching minister for 20 years and worship minister for 4 years. Currently he serves the East Sunshine Church of Christ as preaching minister. The core message of Randy’s preaching is the accomplished work of Jesus for us. Some of Randy’s favorite things include reading, playing guitar, fishing and reaping the rewards of being a Chick-fil-A Signature Member.
Office Administrator & Communications
Deb is grateful for her Midwest roots that gave her a sense of community (and connection to wide open spaces). She always knew that art and design would be an important element in her life. With over 20 years experience in commercial art, and design, Deb feels especially blessed to serve her East Sunshine family in ways that allow the use of her talent and organizational skills to help inform and connect the congregation and community. She loves to create art, decorate, renovate, garden, cook, read and spend time with family and friends.
Braiden (known as Toelke to his friends) sings tenor on the praise team at East Sunshine and is being mentored to become a worship leader. He is currently a Graphic Design major at Missouri State University where he also performs in an all-male a cappella group called the Missouri State Beartones. When he graduates he intends to work at a graphic design firm and pursue music on the side. Braiden loves to design logos, book covers, packaging, posters and ads. But above all this, He hopes to serve the Lord and share His love and kindness to all.
