Homecall: Randal Amos

January 3, 2021

On November 3rd, 2020, brother Randal (Randy) Amos of Oregon City, Oregon went Home to be with His Lord and Savior whom he loved and served for so many years. He was 74 at the time of his passing. Brother Randy was born in Philippi, West Virginia and spent his childhood in Pittsburgh, PA. He was married to his wife Sylvia Neibch in 1968, a God-ordained union of over 52 years.

At the age of 30, Randy committed his life to the study and accurate teaching of the Word of God. He travelled ceaselessly throughout
the US, Canada, and abroad, teaching the Scriptures to audiences young and old, large and small. Whether it was in a conference
or a camp setting or in a local meeting (and recently via video conferencing), his skill in teaching Church truth through print or from
the platform was unsurpassed. His ability for “connecting the dots” between OT pictures and NT truth was absolutely astounding. His humble and transparent manner while maintaining a firm grasp on the truth of God’s Word only accentuated his giftedness from the Lord and the obvious reason why the Lord had laid His hand upon this esteemed brother in the ministry of the Word. As he would often say: “God wrote it, I quote it!”.

So many could easily say of him that he was a “faithful and beloved brother” (Col. 4:9). Truly, he was a servant of the Lord in every respect
and will be sorely missed by so many who were edified and encouraged by his teaching as this editor was for more than 40 years. The Amos have been blessed with three children, Cindy Dougal, Bob Amos, and Mary Beth Pearson and six grandchildren.

Memorial donations may be made to Christian Missions in Many Lands (https://www.cmml.us/donate). Personal financial gifts will be
managed through New Smyrna Bible Chapel, 3801 S. Atlantic Ave. #208, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32169 (with check payable to New
Smyrna Bible Chapel, with reference to Randy & Sylvia Amos).

“And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth”.

Ecclesiastes 12:9–10
