Classrooms, performance halls and sanctuaries best describe the past working venues for Convene Chair Randal Smith.


Raised in Kansas, Randal studied voice and later choral music, completing advanced degrees from the University of Kansas and Southern Methodist University in Dallas. However, a unique calling pulled him into three decades of church ministry, a vocation recently concluded after 22 years of work in the same church in Lynn, Massachusetts. He leverages his past experience as president of a homeless services agency, denominational executive, pastor and educator to effect change and bring hope to a wide variety of clients.

A desire to broaden his influence led Randal to study professional coaching, a role that now places him face to face with a broad swath of Christian leaders and their teams.

In 2011, he founded Clearpoint Coaching LLC, a business now consisting of four partners who possess a wide variety of experience in religious, military, and business settings.

Randal has completed doctoral work in Leadership with an emphasis about leaders ’embracing intentional succession’ processes and coaching. Randal has conducted several Succession Journey seminars and can be viewed at successionjourney.com. Randal remains a credentialed minister, follows Boston’s pro sports teams and KU basketball. He is the proud father of two adult sons, a wonderful daughter in law and one grandson who live in the Boston area. He helps his wife, Beckie lead worship at Gloucester Assembly of God.
