randyRandy Gideons is married to Rhonda and has two children, Kelley & Matthew. They live in Webster, Florida. Randy spent 21 years serving in ministry at a local church until leaving with the churches blessing to start the Vineyard Church in Leesburg in 1998. He’s had the privilege to serve as Senior Pastor for the past 17 years. He was licensed and ordained by the Vineyard Association of Churches in 1999 on Father’s Day.

Since its inception the VCF has outgrown each of the four venues it has occupied. In 2010 they purchased an old warehouse and converted it into the meeting place they use today. With the move into the remodeled building came the name change to The Warehouse Church. Their mission has been to search and rescue members of its community whom have experienced a disconnect from the church due to a myriad of personal circumstances. In order to accomplish this mission, the VCF has provided an atmosphere of acceptance and family in order to spiritually, mentally, and emotionally heal members of its community.
