Pastor Ray T. Rose was born in Richmond, Virginia to Pastor Lucy Rose. He was tremendously influenced by his mother and many others in his faith and belief in Jesus Christ. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of twelve and was ordained as a Minister and preached his trial sermon at the age of thirteen. Rev. Ray strayed from the church over the years but in spite of him, the Lord never left him.
It took the passing of his oldest brother, Melvin, and fervent and effectual prayers unto the living God for Rev. Ray to come full circle, fall on his knees and repent. Rev. Ray has a deep passion and burden for Intercession and is actively involved in the Intercession Ministry. He also heads the Crisis Intervention and Resources Ministry (CIRM). Rev. Ray loves the people of the Most High God and has a great desire to be an available servant at any time God so desires to use Him for the edification of His Kingdom and His people.
Rev Ray loves to write songs, poems, short stories, plays and has recorded most of his dreams since the age of twelve. His favorite saying “Not by might nor by power; but by my Spirit says the Lord.” To God be the Glory!!
Director of Marketing/Promotions
Host of Declaring The Finished Work
Born in1952 in Montgomery, AL, my childhood began in church. I grew up in the traditional church environment and by age 20 I left knowing that there had to be more to this life than what I was hearing. My heart connected with God at an early age and it never gave up the search for who God is and who I am.
This search for truth took me through the study of eastern religions and then into practical Christianity found in a nontraditional Christian ministry. I accepted salvation in Christ Jesus as the only way in my early 30’s.
For over 35 years I have studied scripture, served in leadership and on staff for a mega church for 14 years. During this time, I discovered a great love for worship and praise in music and easily served in this ministry for many years.
Becoming a teacher of the Gospel, especially in large group settings, was not as comfortable and I resisted but God gently led me further out into the waters and I slowly began to accept this part of my identity on earth.
God didn’t just stop there. He led me further out into the waters and I joined When Christians Speak Talk Radio in 2013 as a talk show host. In this capacity my relationship with the Holy Spirit has expanded in unexpected ways increasing the liberty in Christ I now have. What’s next in the journey is a mystery so I take one day at a time with expectations in Christ alone.
