Meet our Pastor - Dr. Randall DeVille
Pastor Randall DeVille came to Falcon Baptist Church on November 16, 2003. His desire is to shepherd the church to “live up to our mission statement, which is to be a loving church that acquaints others with Jesus.”
Randall was born in Lake Charles, LA and has 4 brothers and 2 sisters. It was during those childhood years that Randall gave His life to the Lord. “While at summer camp, a dear pastor's wife led me down the Romans road and I realized my need for a Savior. It was soon after my trusting in Jesus Christ that I began to realize a passion to win lost souls.”
After high school, Randall studied mechanical engineering at McNeese State University. He soon understood his need to get to know God and His Word, so he moved to Missouri to attend Calvary Bible College. It was there that Randall met René and they were married on June 18, 1983. Both Randall and René are graduates of Calvary Bible College.
Following college, Randall served as Youth Director in the Lake Pomme de Terre area and also at Woodson Avenue Bible Church in Kansas City. He was then called back to Louisiana where he served as assistant Pastor at his home church for five years. While in Louisiana, Randall reenrolled at McNeese University working on certification to teach secondary mathematics. He returned to Kansas City where he taught Christian School and served as a youth pastor and pastor to churches in the Kansas City area.
Randall enjoys fishing, playing basketball, and rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs. Randall and Rene have one grown daughter, Ellie. Ellie married Paul Nasrallah in 2007. On August 5th, 2009, Paul and Ellie gave birth to the DeVille's first granddaughter, Kylie Je t'aime Nasrallah. Their second granddaughter, Isla Claire, was born on August 31, 2011.
Randall is an alumni of Calvary Bible College where he graduated with a B.A. in Pastoral Studies. Randall received his Master’s degree in Biblical Studies from Calvary Theological Seminary. His earned doctorate is in Education with an emphasis on Teacher Leadership from Walden University. His life verse continues to ring true: “The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it” (1 Thessalonians 5:24).
