Ray and Trish are Eastern Shore natives, who married in July 1977 and have become the proud parents of three grown children: Cory, Sarah and Crystal and fourteen very special grandchildren.
Ray was licensed in ministry with the Church of God (Cleveland TN) in 1981; and ordained in 1987. Since then he has served as Minister of Youth, Evangelism and Visitation Director, Christian Education Director, Associate Pastor, and church founder/planter. Presently he serves as the Executive Secretary for the Federalsburg Ministerial Association. Since 1979, the Parsons’ ministry and combined passions as worship leaders, musicians, Bible-teachers, administrators and community networkers has allowed them the rare and rewarding privilege to return to their hometown and “go, teach, preach, baptize and make disciples of all men.”
