Randal Schieck


Randall is currently a board member for Mountaintop Walk to Emmaus and resides in South Tamaqua, Pennsylvania with his wife Barbara. Randall and Barbara went on the 27th walk and
Randall led worship for the 28th walk and spoke on Christian Action for the 29th walk. Randall has stated, “The reason that I have been on these walks, and am currently on the board of directors is because I have a burden to win others to Christ, and I desire to learn more what it means to follow and live for Jesus in this world, so that I can be prepared to meet Him when I pass away. Being a part of Walk to Emmaus helps me to achieve these goals. I would encourage anyone who would like to have a life changing experience for themselves, and for those who would like to make a difference in the lives of others, to join us.”
