Randal Gilmore

Gospel Story Arc Project

Randal Gilmore has a passion for reaching people for Christ by helping them see the gospel story as it unfolds from Genesis to Revelation. In 2019 he stepped aside from other ministry responsibilities to concentrate exclusively on the “Gospel Story-Arc” project. Previously, he had served for seven years as the Pacific Rim regional director of Word of Life International and field director of Word of Life Japan. Before that he pastored for 35 years. Randal holds a B.R.E. from Clarks Summit University, an M.A. in Organizational Communication from Western Michigan Univesity, and a D.R.S. from Trinity Seminary in Newburgh, Indiana. Randal is the author of numerous books, magazine articles, and blog posts, and serves as a frequent conference speaker. Dale, his wife of 42 years, is an ESL teacher, and shares the same passion for using the science of story to better share who Jesus is.  Randal and Dale are blessed parents of five sons and four daughters-in-law, and grandparents of eight. Randal says, “our grandchildren are by far our favorite audience to engage through the wonder of story.”

Graham Foran

Baptist Mid-Missions, Brazil

Born in Birmingham, Alabama, Graham was saved during evangelistic meetings. He was later baptized, called to the ministry and ordained at the Cornerstone Baptist Church of Grayson, Georgia. He was a Youth Evangelist with Neighborhood Bible Time while in college. After studying at Bob Jones University (BA Bible 1976 and MA Bible 1978) he served as Assistant Pastor at the Buffalo Ridge Baptist Church in Gray, Tennessee.

Graham is married to René Schubert. She was saved at the age of five during children’s church at Calvary Baptist Church of Thorton, Colorado, and graduated from BJU in 1978. They have four grown children: Nathan, Ryan, Ginny and Katie, and seven grandkids. René has a wide ministry as a conference/retreat speaker and leads women’s discipleship, music, and social networking ministries.

In October of 1985, the Lord used veteran missionaries Bob and Corrine Jones to challenge the Forans for ministry in Brazil, where they served together for several years. The Forans joined Baptist Mid-Missions in 1986 and moved to Brazil in 1988. They live and minister on the western side of greater São Paulo in south Brazil. The Forans are ministering in their sixth church plant. In 2013, Bob Jones University conferred upon Graham the honorary Doctor of Divinity degree. Since 2018, Graham has served as the BMM Field Administrator for Brazil.
