Chaplain & Sr. Firefighter Randy Compton
(With his wife, Jodie)


Randy & Jodie

What a wonderful honor and opportunity it is to serve as Chaplain for the Hendersonville Fire Department. Not only to serve the members of this department and their families but to serve the citizens of the City of Hendersonville. We are all in a service role as firefighters but I hope to take that service to the next level.

As I look back on my career as a member of the Hendersonville Fire Department, I can now see the path God has brought me down. Through the highest of high points and through the lowest of low points in my career I have felt God's presence in my life leading me on this journey to this point. With the support of Jodie, my amazing bride of 34 years, Chief Bush, and Deputy Chief Holt, my role in the department has expanded and I am blessed to be certified as chaplain through the state of Tennessee and humbled to have been ordained for Chaplaincy Ministry through my church, Indian Lake Penninsula Church, on February 19, 2017.

As I move forward, my prayer is that I will be available to serve you in your time of need, celebrate with you in times of joy, and have the opportunity to build friendships across the department. Please do not hesitate to call if I can be of assistance.

In His service,
Randy Compton
