Ray is our Lead Pastor, who has been a guiding presence at Parkview for an impressive 28 years. Beyond his role of teaching and providing spiritual leadership, Ray values the freedom to be himself, breaking down preconceived notions of what a pastor should be. Authenticity is paramount to Ray – he lives by the belief that being genuine is more valuable than any false ideal. Despite his spiritual gifts aligning with those of a lead pastor, Ray remains deeply connected to our congregation and staff, embodying the spirit of unity. His life verse, “He must become greater, I must become less.” (John 3:30), reflects his humble approach to leadership.
