Ray Sherwood is our pastor and has been here since July 1, 2018. Pastor Ray has been in ministry since June, 1993 and has been a pastor in many parts of the country with his latest parishes in NW Minnesota.
Pastor Ray has been married to his wife, Brenda, for 31 years. They have four children: Eric, Stephanie, Jeremy and Christopher and four grandchildren: Ethan, Noah, Hudson and Mya.
Pastor Ray’s call to ministry is found in Ephesians 3:7-8, “I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power. Although I am less than the least of all God’s people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.”
Pastor Ray’s favorite verse is found in Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Pastor Ray collects lighthouses and has many in his office. He likes to play board games with his family, hiking, camping, watching movies and looking at the stars at night!
Brenda is our Administrative Assistant. She prepares the worship folders and works on the monthly newsletter and a whole lot of other things that goes on behind the scenes.
