Christ Community Chapel in Hudson is asking for media patience as Tom Randall, a church pastor recently freed from a Filipino jail "acclimate(s) to being back home."
Randall was released from jail Monday after being held for 22 days on a charge of negligence stemming from an investigation into human trafficking at the Sankey Samaritan Orphanage, which he founded. The charge has been dropped. Two workers are still being held in the Philippines on unspecified charges from the same investigation.
"As you can imagine, this has been a very challenging time for Tom and his family and they will take some time to acclimate to being back home," according to Tim Schofield, a pastor at the Hudson campus of Christ Community Chapel, 750 W. Streetsboro St. "At this time, Pastor Joe (Coffey) or Tom will not be conducting any on-camera or phone interviews.

Tom Randall, who was hired in September as pastor-at-large at Christ Community Chapel, was arrested on undetermined charges Jan. 12 while in Manila doing missionary work and is being held on charges of human trafficking. View More Photos>>

Randall and Filipino nationals were arrested Jan. 12 in Manila while doing typhoon relief work and missionary work at an orphanage established by World Harvest Ministries. The mission ministry, which was founded in 1990 by Randall and his wife, Karen, is responsible for planting churches and providing a million meals as emergency relief after the typhoon.
A hearing scheduled Friday to determine whether charges would be dropped against Randall was postponed.

Coffey, who describes himself as a close personal friend of Randall for about 20 years, said Randall has pneumonia and a urinary tract infection.
"He's in trouble physically. Tom left the Philippines [where he and his wife had moved in 1979] because he had toxic poisoning. Because of that, his immune system is compromised. Being in Manila, where the pollution is horrible, is jeopardizing his health," said Coffey, who has been overwhelmed by the number of people contacting him to vouch for Randall's integrity and to ask how they can help.
Randall joined the pastoral staff at Christ Community Chapel in September, several months after he and his wife moved to Stow from Edmond, Okla. He retired last summer after more than 13 years as chaplain for the PGA Champions Tour. As chaplain of the senior tour, he traveled to each tournament and conducted Bible study for golfers and their families, caddies and officials.
Schofield said the Randalls left in December for the Philippines, where they have done missionary work for decades. The couple has had a relationship with Christ Community Chapel (formerly known as Hudson Community Chapel) for about 20 years. During the recent visit, allegations of misconduct surfaced against Randall and two of his workers.
Christ Community Chapel leadership was told that the allegations could not be substantiated through an investigation. But a subsequent complaint was filed with the U.S. Embassy in the Philippines and Homeland Security, which resulted in Randall's arrest.
Coffey describes Randall as a missionary of more than 30 years and an athlete who has taken players around the world to participate in basketball games and share the gospel.
All-star athlete
According to his website (tomrandall.org), Randall participated in four sports - basketball, soccer, cross country and golf - at Judson College near Chicago, were he earned his undergraduate degree in human relations in 1976. The two-time Illinois basketball all-star was inducted into Judson's hall of fame in 2003 and his jersey number was retired.
Randall has also performed a unicycle and juggling show in Olympic stadiums, on the Wide World of Sports in Australia and at universities, prisons, military bases and leper colonies.
A report published on Inquirer.net, a Filipino national news website, states Randall was arrested for "allegedly abusing children" and that Toto Luchavez and Jake Luchavez were also arrested for allegedly sending "orphaned girls to friends for sex.
...
The report describes Randall as a former player in the Manila Industrial and Commercial Athletic Association (the forerunner to the Philippine Basketball Association) and states that the three men are facing charges of human trafficking, rape and child abuse.
Coffey, who shared some of his thoughts in his blog (joecoffeytalk.com), said he is still trying to figure out what happened and is wondering if someone targeted Randall.
"From what I understand, there was an allegation against a worker at his orphanage by a 15-year-old girl who said the worker kissed her. Tom called children's services to investigate.
...
"Sex trafficking is a heinous thing and as someone who has known Tom for 20 years, I can't believe there is any truth to it.
...
David Joyce, R-Russell Twp., said "our office has reached out to both the U.S. Embassy in Manila and the State Department regarding Rev. Randall's case and we're hopeful for a resolution soon."
...
Until things have been resolved, Schofield and Coffey said they and the Christ Community Chapel family will continue to pray for Randall and his wife, who is in Manila.
"I love Tom like a brother. He has an infectious personality. He loves people and he loves Jesus. I know that is why he has gained favor with the guards and inmates because, even locked up in that cell, Tom is doing what Tom does - he's sharing God's love with them and praying with them," Coffey said. "He has been able to call - but mostly text - me periodically. I'm pretty sure that's because of the favor he has found with the guards. The last text I got said 'trouble in the cell block.' That's a little disconcerting. We just want him home."
Randall is expected to be the topic of the sermon and the focus of prayer this weekend at Christ Community Chapel, which has four campuses in Hudson, Aurora, Stow and Akron's Highland Square. Members of the church have set up a Facebook page (Free Tom Randall) to encourage prayer and to support the effort to get Randall released.

"Sex trafficking is a heinous thing and as someone who has known Tom for 20 years, I can't believe there is any truth to it. Unfortunately, it's the kind of thing that sticks no matter what the outcome is. We are praying that he's not being implicated in any of this."
Randall recently retired after working for 13 years as a chaplain for the PGA Champions Tour, where he would minister to professional golfers, their families and caddies by conducting a Bible study at each tournament. He was also reportedly a professional basketball player and dedicated part of his outreach effort in the Philippines to organizing local basketball matches in villages.
Randall became director of World Harvest Ministries in 1990, and the Sankey Samaritan Orphanage in Lucena City is part of that mission ministry. The pastor was hired at Christ Community Chapel in September after he and his wife moved from Edmond, Okla., to Stow, Ohio.

The halftime show was run by Tom Randall, the founder of World Harvest Ministries, and four of his boys from the Sankey Orphanage (Gilbert, Roy, Randy, and E-Mat). First Tom would do a series of juggling tricks with as many as three basketballs, and then the boys would come out and perform a unicycle show with him. I was amazed at how fluidly they moved on those things. Then the show ended with Tom pulling a little kid from the crowd, putting him on his shoulders and riding around the unicycle. The crowd always loved that.

In my eyes, Tom Randall is like a modern-day version of the apostle Paul. He's done and is still doing so much (while going through many struggles) to get the Gospel out to those who don't yet know Jesus.
