Dr. Randy M. Haynes

Rev. Dr. Randy M. Haynes is a native son of Greenville, Mississippi. Having relocated to Boston, Massachusetts early in life, he graduated from the Boston Public Schools. Subsequently, he earned a BA in Theology, a Master’s degree in Ministry, and a Doctorate in Ministry. He is the son of the late Rev. Dr. Michael E.

Pastor Haynes has served with distinction for years in ministry leadership over a broad spectrum, including children and youth, young adults, choral music, senior adults, and biblical education. With forty years of ministerial experience, Pastor Haynes has become known as an exceptional teacher and preacher.

Pastor Haynes was a frequent lecturer at colleges and universities throughout New England as a recognized authority on juvenile delinquency, substance abuse and treatment, and community policing. He also served on Curry College’s faculty in Milton, Massachusetts as an adjunct professor and taught criminal justice courses in the sociology department. Having served on multiple social, welfare, and criminal justice agencies and boards, Pastor Haynes sought to uplift poor and disenfranchised people in the community where he came of age.

‘Standing on Bended Knees’ is an answered prayer for any men’s ministry. Dr. Haynes took his time to walk us through 52 weeks’ worth of personal devotions. He holds nothing back…
