About Ray Byrne: Pastor Ray came to Grace Fellowship in May 2014 after forming a relationship with the church over the previous seven months through pulpit supply. He was drawn to the people of the church, as they were genuinely welcoming and kind. “There is a sense of community and support that occurs at Grace Fellowship that I haven’t quite seen before” says Pastor Ray. He and his wife Nicole joined with what God is doing at Grace Fellowship after eight years of youth ministry at two other churches. The transition for them has been natural as the heart and goal of the ministry is the same- Building lives of faith in Christ. Pastor Ray has a passion for seeing the people of the church engage in disciple-making relationships and inviting others to follow Jesus together. He also has a strong burden for preaching the bible as God’s word, in a way that seeks to allow God’s truth to be revealed as we earnestly seek Him. He feels this is best done when we learn God’s story the way He laid it out; one book, one story at a time. By approaching God’s story to His people in a way that allows us to understand His truth, he believes that His story will lead us in ours.

Luke 5:1-11

1And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. 8When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: 10And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. 11And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him. (KJV)
