WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-FL, took to the House floor this morning to recognize Pastor Randy Bezet of Sarasota-Manatee’s Bayside Community Church. Pastor Bezet delivered the morning prayer to open the House of Representatives.

“Mr. Speaker, it is an honor for me to welcome to the United States Capitol a tremendous community and spiritual leader, Pastor Randy Bezet, who has led us in the opening prayer this morning.

“The pastor is a senior and founding pastor of Bayside Community Church, which has several campuses located throughout my district. His church has been at the forefront of strengthening, encouraging, and serving the people in Sarasota and Bradenton, Florida.

“The pastor is an inspirational leader who mentors young pastors who are also passionate about revitalizing and restoring local churches in their community. I applaud his work and his service, the pastor and his church, for what they do in southwest Florida. It’s a great honor and a privilege for me to welcome the pastor before Congress today, and I yield back.”
