The Irving C. Lambert Award
By Faith Network of the East Bay
Here at Faith Network, we are beaming from ear to ear about the award that Randy received for his work. Not only does the award speak highly of our president, but it also honors Faith Network as an organization.
Below are some of the words that are written on the plaque that Randy received.
We share these words with you, our volunteers, donors, champions, partners in ministry–you make Faith Network possible.
“Your creative entrepreneurial spirit, prophetic and visionary understanding, and pastoral wisdom led you to launch Faith Network of the East Bay as an effort to improve the whole health of children and families in that area of the city.”
“Through this outreach ministry, vulnerable children and their families are given hope, leading to transformed lives, homes, communities and ultimately impacting the city of Oakland.”
“In collaborative partnership with churches, schools, community organizations, and individuals, you seek to bring equity to an unbalanced educational system in the urban environment. Faith Network provides space and place for restoration and redemption in broken communities, bringing academic and life skills, empowerment and hope to many”
“While deflecting praise and spotlight away from yourself, you have earned the respect of your city and its leaders, both religious and secular. Your ministry exemplifies the statement, ‘For God’s glory and neighbors’ good.'”
