PASTORAL STAFF


Rick grew up in New England but has served in various roles in GA, NC, and PA as Pastor of Students and Development as well as roles in a mental health facility and church planting. Rick and his wife Becky are deeply committed to the gospel and passionate for the Holy Spirits' transformation in the next generation.

 

Rick holds a B.S. in Pastoral Ministry from Toccoa Falls College, a M.A. in Organizational Leadership from Crown College and is currently working toward a P.h.D from Captial Seminary and Graduate school.  

 

Rick and Becky have been married since 1999 and have two sons in college (Jake and Josiah) and a daughter who is in high school (Hope). They enjoy spending time outside at the beach, on a trail, or by the water whenever possible. 

Ray currently resides in Lancaster, PA but is originally from Baltimore, MD. In the fall of 2001, he began attending Lancaster Bible College where he studied Pastoral Ministry and graduated with a B.S. in Biblical Studies. It was there that he met his wife, Erin, in the college's first gospel choir they started with a few other students. A year after graduating from Lancaster Bible College, he married Erin in 2007.

 

Shortly after, he took on the position as a deacon of music at New Life Christian Fellowship where he served for 6 1/2 years. The Lord led them to later serve the young adult ministry at Worship Center in Leola, PA. They volunteered as worship team core leaders for three years until their son Julian was born in 2019. Ray and Erin are devoted to and find great joy in raising their son.  They also spend time discipling young adults. It is a joy and blessing to use their home as a ministry. “Come as you are,” is a beloved phrase for the Taylor household. Ray loves reading, playing basketball, shooting pool, and spending quality time at home with Erin and Julian.
