Pastors & Staff

Rev. Deneen Ray


Pastor Deneen is passionate about sharing how the word of God is STILL relevant and can be applied in our daily lives. She finds great joy in building relationships with others as they process His truth while living out their created purpose.  She believes in a world full of conflict and competition we have to educate, equip and encourage those around us as we ALL strive to live the life God created for each of us.She often talks about the importance of slowing down so we don't miss the little things such as the quiet voice, small gentle touch or hidden tears of those close to us as we try to keep up with the ever increasing speed of the world around us.  
To remind us ALL are needed the highly quoted African proverb says "It takes a village to raise a child" with that being said, Pastor Deneen believes our "entire" (not just one) faith community is needed to carry our the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:19-20 NIV: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
