Randy Kuss is a Disciples minister with over 45 years experience in congregational, regional, and denominational Christian education, youth, young adult, and outdoor ministries. Retired from full-time ministry, he serves as Interim Associate Pastor for the Promise Road Campus of Geist Christian Church, coordinating the media team, assisting in worship leadership, and working with staff and members on the path into the future.

In addition to ministry here, Randy serves with Disciples Home Missions as Coordinator of Youth and Young Adult Consulting Services, providing support to the Young Adult Commission and the General Youth Council, and others to help organize, strengthen, and extend the ministries of Disciples youth and young adults. Randy also served on DHM staff from 1995 to 2003 as Director of Youth Ministries.

Randy is a co-founder of the Disciples Youth Ministry Network and leads spiritual renewal and visioning retreats for youth workers and other church leaders. He is trained as a Labyrinth Facilitator through Veriditas, an international organization that promotes creation and use of labyrinths worldwide.

Randy dabbles in music and song-leading, photography, woodwork, fishing, and watercolor. He is a sci-fi / fantasy fan and read The Princess Bride in the mid-70’s, and finished the last paragraph with the thought, “Wow, this would make a great movie.”

Randy’s wife, Rev. Deb Strock-Kuss, is also a Disciples minister. They have two grown children, Georgia and Blaine.
