The Visionaries

About pastor ray barnard

     The story of Pastor Ray began as a story of destiny demanding to be fulfilled. Raised in a God-fearing family, living next door to the church his father pastored, he had no choice or excuse but to be in church every Sunday. Thus a strong foundation was being laid for the plan, purpose and direction his life was to take. This training played a crucial part in his life and development.

     Pastor Ray lost both his parents at a very early tender age. Things were not easy, but Pastor Ray was able to capture a picture or vision for his life. As a young man growing up, he came to know and understand the value of work, focus, discipline, and commitment to a goal for achievement.

      During his high school years he became a celebrated basketball and football athlete. He went on to play collegiate football at Temple University where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree. 

From there Pastor Ray went on to Graduate School at Oral Roberts University, where he became involved in the Youth Ministry. Upon returning to Philadelphia, he became the Youth Pastor for one of the largest, fastest growing churches in the city.

The foundation of his early life played a critical role for the call and Commission that God had placed on his life: to teach the Word of Faith and to Create a People Who Could Not Be Destroyed. He and his wife, Pastor Tracey started Impacting Your World Christian Center, from their home, with eleven people, chairs borrowed from the YMCA, a 2 channel sound board along with their home stereo system..
