Randy “Coach” Wilcox

Randy, better known as “Coach Wilcox”, is somewhat of an icon in Payson, AZ. Having taught middle school PE for 40 years, (32 of which has been in Payson), it is hard to find a person in the area who does not know him. His famous “Carry the milk!” motto (encouraging kids to help around the house) has even earned him a spot on the autograph wall at a local dairy store!

Randy graduated from Grand Canyon College in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education. He then went on to earn a Master’s Degree in counseling from Western New Mexico University. Randy married his college sweetheart, Christy, in December of 1981 and they have 2 adult children.

Randy accepted Christ at 7 years old and has spent his life serving in many different areas. He has taught young adult Bible studies, led congregational music in 3 different churches, and is the resident drummer at his home church in Payson. He also has a huge heart for outreach and evangelism, and has even traveled with Allen to Nicaragua as an invaluable leader at our Nicaraguan Sports Camp!

In his free time he likes to play tennis, ride his quad, work around the house, landscape, hike, and enjoy God’s great creation. He and his (incredibly patient) wife both recently retired from teaching and are looking forward to new ministries and adventures!
