Senior Minister

full bio

Rev. Robert Cunningham

Robert was born and raised in Lexington, graduating from Henry Clay High School in 1998.  As a child, he received the basics of the Christian faith from his family and church, but it was through the ministry of Young Life that he first embraced the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He attended Murray State University receiving his Bachelor’s in Communications.  During these formative years, his faith was nurtured and refined through various campus ministries, involvement in the local church, personal studies, and most importantly a fellowship with men who still remain his closest friends.  This was also the time when he came to understand and love the doctrines of reformed Presbyterian theology.

Upon graduation in 2002, he participated in a brief internship at TCPC and then moved to St. Louis, MO to attend Covenant Theological Seminary.  While attending Covenant, he received invaluable training and care from the faculty of Covenant, but most importantly, married his precious wife, Abby.

After graduating Covenant in 2006 with a Masters in Divinity, he was called back to Lexington to serve as the Director of Student Ministries of TCPC.  He was ordained as a minister of the PCA in 2008, called as an associate pastor in 2011, and then called as the senior pastor of TCPC in January of 2012.

Robert and Abby have three sons - Holt, Charlie, and Owen, and these boys are his delight.  Outside of family and ministry, his joys are reading, fly-fishing, golf, and passionately (verging on idolatrously) supporting University of Kentucky Athletics.  He is humbled, honored, and happy to serve as a minister in the city and state he loves so much, and dreams of a lifetime devoted to the glory of Christ and the good of the Bluegrass.

full bio

Rev. Mark Randle

Mark Randle was born and raised in Loudon, TN. He grew up in the church and both his parents are followers of Christ. During his time as an undergraduate at the University of Tennessee, Mark was very involved in the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ and developed a love for integrating faith into daily life.

Mark attended a Campus Crusade “summer project” in 1993 in Hampton Beach, NH which became a watershed season in his life. It was during this summer Mark developed a desire for missions and it was the place he met Lisa, who would become his wife. Upon graduation and marriage, Mark and Lisa joined the staff of Campus Crusade and were placed at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, where they have lived since 1994.

During his days on staff, Mark began reading and studying theology and was very influenced by the ministry of R.C. Sproul and other reformed thinkers. He began to work on a Masters of Arts in Religion through Reformed Theological Seminary’s partnership with Crusade. As he ministered to university students and began to process the doctrines of grace and the nature of God’s covenant, Mark and his family felt called to the PCA and Tates Creek Presbyterian.

Mark left staff with Crusade in 2006 to complete his degree from RTS and to finish a Masters of Divinity from Southern Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. He interned at TCPC with John Sartelle until 2008 while finishing his education, and was ordained in March of 2009. Mark served as the Director of Adult Ministries at TCPC before accepting the call of Associate Pastor in 2012.

Mark and Lisa have 3 children, Macy, Sarah and Keeton. He loves to read, run, golf, play tennis (though plays more golf than tennis these days), have dinner with friends, laugh with the kids and take walks with Lisa. He aims to keep his love for the University of Tennessee athletics a secret in Lexington – but typically fails! He is thrilled to have the chance to serve Christ at TCPC and hopes to do so for many years.
