Pastors Randy and Cherie

Randy and Cherie Gilbert are the founding pastors of Faith Landmarks Ministries (FLM) in Richmond, Virginia.  Graduates of Rhema Bible Training Center, the Gilberts have been in ministry for over 35 years.

The Gilberts founded FLM in 1980, with an initial congregation of 13.  Through the years, the congregation has grown to over 12,000 members.  FLM places a strong emphasis on the helps ministry and on training and equipping the church to go into the world and do the work of the ministry.

With a strong belief in the importance of Christian education, Randy and Cherie founded Victory Christian Academy in 1985.  This fully-accredited, K3-12th grade school continues to thrive and grow.

In 1989, the Gilberts founded Faith Landmarks Bible Institute, a one to three year ministry training program.  FLBI is open to the community and is tailored not only for people looking to enter full-time ministry, but also those simply desiring a deeper study of the Word of God.

The Contact television ministry started locally in 2003.  Today, CONTACT with Randy and Cherie is seen daily by millions of viewers all over the world.

Through the grace of God, Randy and Cherie Gilbert and Faith Landmarks Ministries continue to impact the world for Christ through a variety of outreach programs, local ministry, international mission crusades, Bible schools, and television ministry.  With the vision of “love never fails,” the Gilberts use the Word of God to offer practical insight and hope to people facing the challenges of the world today.
