Coalition for Kids
Randy Hensley has served as the Executive Director of Coalition For Kids since its founding in 1998. Starting with approximately 25 children in the Johnson City area, they now serve over 400 children per day, 50+ paid team members, 1,000+ volunteers a year and a budget of $1.2million. Randy has ensured Coalition For Kids remains steadfast in their mission to positively impact children at-risk. His desire is to offer faith based after school care to every child in Washington County. Randy’s team of servant leaders and a board with vision ensure the ministry of C4K is unparalleled in the state of Tennessee. To assist in this hope they received a very generous gift of property valued in excess of $2,000,000 from Mitch Cox in 2016.
Randy began his pastoral ministry with the United Methodist Church in 1994 at Rockhold UMC and tenured there for 7 years watching as the church grew from 19 to 160 active congregants. He began the Rock Fellowship Church, a non-denominational church, in 2001 in a community center with a small group of 20 and has enjoyed wonderful growth of over 200 active attendants weekly and now residing in a recently purchased 33,000 sq ft facility.
