Pastor Randy & Robin are the founding and Lead Pastors of Vive Church in Columbia, South Carolina.   Randy was born July 9 1969 in Spangler, PA and moved to Florida with his family in 1984. In 1986 he met his wife Robin in High School.  They were married in 1990.

Randy is driven by his desire to introduce people to the life-changing message of Jesus. Vive Church is a vibrant new church with a refreshing application of faith and culture.

Randy, his wife Robin of 28 years and their two children, Noah and Kalyn, After serving as missionaries to Central Europe for half a decade, returned to Columbia, South Carolina in July of 2009 where they had begun their ministry calling as Youth Pastors. While ministering abroad, Randy and Robin developed a deep-rooted passion to help people far from God, from all walks of life, experience the real relationship He offers.

Little did they know that in these formative years, God was preparing their lives for something far greater to come.

While itinerating back in the United States for support, God began to plant a new vision in Randy’s heart for the American Church. It was becoming more evident that people are increasingly disillusioned and disinterested with Christianity.  Randy is driven by the understanding that only Jesus has the ability to bring people from death to life.” And at VIVE Church that is the mission. Bringing People to Life

“VIVE Church began as a dream and now its a reality”.  The Columbia church was started in the living room of Randy and Robin Knechtel and moved in October of 2010 to its current location 2630 Clemson Rd.  

Today, VIVE Columbia is a growing, vibrant church with two Sunday morning services.

Our Chapin church began meeting in Chapin Town Hall in the fall of 2017.  We are now currently meeting at the Abner Montessori School on E Boundary St.
