Ray and his family came from the foreign mission field to our church in the fall of 2004.  Over his thirty year career, Ray has served churches in Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Nicaragua and Missouri. Ray and his wife Kay Lyn have five children who all live in the area.

One of Ray's favorite verses that serves as the mission statement of his ministry is "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."  Romans 12:2  KJV
