A veteran pastor, Ray now is the administrator of Tina Houser Ministries, coaches pastors and consults churches. He is excited about helping churches that are plateaued get going again and seeing declining churches rebound. Ray believes there is hope for these churches, if they want to become agents of God’s love, hope and forgiveness in their communities.

It’s not uncommon for churches and children’s ministry leaders to heartily agree that parents have the greatest spiritual influence, and that parents should be the primary “pastors” to their own children, but they don’t design the church’s ministry to children to reflect such beliefs.
