At the beginning of this season in episode 1, you heard clips from three different conversations to set the stage for the podcast. In this episode, you’ll hear our entire conversation on spiritual development with Randy Isola.
Randy Isola has served the local church as a pastor since 1991, in the NextGen areas of kids, youth and family ministries. He has experience working in both denominational and non-denominational churches, ranging from a bi-lingual, inner-city church plant to multi-site, suburban, mega churches. Randy has been on staff at Christ Community Church in the western suburbs of Chicago since 2005. He is on their leadership team of Sr. Directors as the Next Generation Pastor leading the staff and ministries for nursery through college across all campuses. Randy believes that to lead or join endeavors impacting kids and students for Christ is one of the greatest eternal investments anyone can make. He received his Bachelor and Master’s degrees from Wheaton College in Illinois. Randy is also a NextGen Associate at Slingshot, where he gets to equip and resource churches to build remarkable teams that will impact the next generation.
Randy and his wife Michelle grew up attending church together in Chicago and were married in 1994. They have 4 sons in their late teens and early 20’s and live in the suburbs of Chicago. Randy likes to hang out with his family, watch sports and let his dog on the couch when his wife isn’t around.
Eddie Cuevas was born and raised in the inner city of Chicago and is an alumnus of The Moody Bible Institute. Eddie and his wife Lauren both met at MBI, and now live in the western suburbs of Chicago with their 2-year-old son. Eddie serves as the Contracts and Subsidiary Rights Manager for Moody Publishers and continues to have a strong partnership with MBI. Eddie will tell you that he is a devout Chicago sports fan (except for the Cubs), a musician who is currently a member of a chamber choir in Chicago, and enjoys modern board gaming…oh, and enjoys spending time with his son of course.
Lauren Cuevas is a radio producer by day, TikTok and ice cream enthusiast by night. Lauren spends her days producing Mornings with Brian on Moody Radio Cleveland and enjoys the evenings with her husband Eddie and son, Trey. On an evening alone you can find her watching 80's movies or binging the next true crime podcast. Lauren is an alumna of Moody Bible Institute and lives in the Chicago suburbs.
