About Elder Randall Ogans Sr.
Elder Randall Ogans Sr. was born in the San Francisco Bay Area. He accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior at the age of seven, and has continuously been active in the Church in a multiplicity of capacities ever since, never leaving.
At the age of 10 he began studying and playing the piano and the Hammond B-3 organ. At the age of 13, he began playing for choirs throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. He was trained in classical music, but was gifted to play gospel music, and to share the Word of God thru speaking, preaching, and through his music.
Elder Randall Ogans Sr. is married to Elder DeBorrah K. Ogans. Both are ordained ministers. In 1995 they founded Alpha 7 Ministries. Through their ministry they have written and published a plethora of written works (books and articles), and are the Executive Producers of several Christian/Gospel recording artists.
Having been fortunate enough to travel and tour Europe, he has experienced the freedom in Christ, and realization that “the earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Psalm 24. His travels have taken him to Greece where he has climbed Mars Hill, spoken of in the book of Acts. This is where the apostle Paul said “It is in Him that we live, move, and have our being”. He has also traveled to France, Spain, Italy, England, Turkey (Ephesus), Canada, Jamaica, and Switzerland,where he has ministered in song at some of the largest cathedrals in that country.
Being able to engage with a diversity of people, cultures, and ages all over the world provided him with a global perspective of God’s true universal Church, better understanding the opportunity, privilege, and calling to minister to all people.
In March, 2020 he released his first single, an inspirational message/spoken word entitled “We Need To Pray”. Released during the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic , this message encourages us to pray for the saints, the sinners, our families, and this world which is quickly spiraling down a slippery slope. If there was ever a time we need to pray, it’s now.
In September 2020 he released his instrumental CD entitled “What A Friend”. Elder Randall Ogans Sr. and his son Dorian L. Ogans, present a few classic hymns, bathed in smooth jazz infused instrumental arrangements.
“What A Friend” includes 7 compositions that will calm the agitations of the soul, and will set an atmosphere for spiritual reflection, prayer, and studying the Word.
In September 2021, Elder Randall Ogans Sr. & Dorian Ogans released their single, “Pass Me Not”. This is a jazz infused instrumental version of the hymn Pass Me Not O Gentle Saviour, where the music cries out “Saviour, Saviour, hear my humble cry, while on others thou are calling, do not pass me by”.
Elder Randall Ogans Sr. was nominated on the National ballot for the 2022 Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards – “Instrumental Artist Of The Year”.
He was also nominated for 2022 Kingdom Image Awards in 3 catagories:
“Song Of The Year (Pass Me Not)”, “Album of the Year (What A Friend)”, and “Instrumentalist Of the Year”.
Elder Randall Ogans Sr.’s favorite scripture is:
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” Colossians 3:16
His instrumental arrangements of time-tested hymns help you to do what Ephesians 5:19 encourages as well, which is to “speak to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.
