I'm Pastor Eric Randolph (he/they) and welcome to Peace Lutheran Church where we're building a community of faith that values and celebrates everyone's God-given uniqueness. Our welcome is radical and biblical! We love all of our neighbors as Christ loves us. So, no matter who you are, where you are in life, or who you love, you have a place here!

My Story

The Reverend Eric Thomas M. Randolph hails from Upstate New York and Northern Pennsylvania and has been in the Washington, D.C. area for more than two decades. Before stepping into his call to the ministry, he achieved considerable success as a top retail executive for several prominent merchants at the local, district, and regional tiers.

Pastor Eric obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion from Saint Leo University and a Master of Divinity degree from United Lutheran Seminary, concentrating in both the Lutheran Confessions and Lutheran History. He is currently enrolled in a Doctor of Education program at Rockhurst University, with a focus on Organizational Leadership and Innovation, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Ordained in 2022 in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), he is dedicated to fostering robust interfaith and ecumenical connections, as well as establishing welcoming and affirming faith communities grounded in the liberating love of Jesus Christ. In 2023, Pastor Eric was appointed by Governor Wes Moore of Maryland to hold the role of a faith advisor on the Governor's Council on Interfaith Outreach.
