In 1987 Pastor Ray was radically saved on the campus of Eastern Arizona College and initiated a revival that lasted two years. While on the Arizona Apache Reservation miracles manifested and another revival erupted.
In 1990, he married Becky Gauna. That year they joined Pastor Phil and Yvonne Hernandez, pastors and founders of In The Light Ministries (ITLM). After his ordination in 1994, they relocated to Tucson, Arizona to pioneer a church. There, they initiated several ministries. One of the works on Yaqui Reservation still exists.
Year 2007 was pivotal for the Harrisons as they returned to Lancaster, Pennsylvania to partner with ITLM’s pastoral team. Since then, they have given oversight to numerous ministries, developed curriculums, reignited the Men’s Ministry at ITLM and are advocates of the “Life Groups” concept. In 2016 he started “Impact Your Today” emphasizing “We impact your today so you can impact someone’s tomorrow.”
In 2017, he and his wife were handed the baton and transitioned to Lead Pastors of ITLM. Pastor Ray has a heart for the lost and for God’s people to mature in Christ Jesus. He is exploring today’s issues using Social Media to reach and minister to the masses, dealing with hot topics that the Christian world is failing to acknowledge “the elephants in the room such as race, sex and religion.
