Vice President of Programs
“With addiction deeply entrenched on both sides of my family, I am a firm believer in helping individuals rebuild their lives through the discipling compassion that St. Matthew’s House offers.”
Ray comes to St. Matthew’s House from Lakeland Florida where he was a regional manager for a small regional electronics retailer with 70+ employees and 12 locations throughout central and southwest Florida. In addition, he served as the Director of Children’s Ministry for Without Walls Central in Lakeland, FL for five years, and he is a graduate of the Master Pastor Internship Program. He, along with his wife, moved to Naples in March of 2012 and has been a part of St. Matthew’s House since that time. He is very proud of his two children and grandson. Ray enjoys walking on the beach with his lovely wife, playing golf, and game night with his family and friends.
