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.

1 John 1:1-10

1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (KJV)
