The story of Pastor Ray Barnard began as one of destiny demanding to be fulfilled. Raised in a God-fearing family, living next door to the church that was made possible in part by his family donating the land – he had no choice but to be in church every Sunday. Thus a strong foundation was laid for the plan, purpose and direction his life was to take. Pastor Ray lost both his parents at a very early age. Things were not easy, but he was able to capture a vision for his life.
As a young man growing up, he came to know and understand the value of work, focus, discipline, and commitment to a goal. An exceptional athlete, Pastor Barnard ranked as an All-City and AllDistrict football and basketball player. This would set the “stage” for public exposure. His early life played a critical role for God’s call and commission: to teach the Word of Faith and to Create A People Who Can Not Be Destroyed.
Pastor Ray and his wife Tracey, started Impacting Your World Christian Center from their home, with eleven people, chairs borrowed from the YMCA, and a 2-channel soundboard along with their home stereo system. Today, Impacting Your World Christian Center is a thriving church seated on ten acres in Cherry Hill, NJ. Pastor Ray is committed to preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom beyond the church walls. He is a sought after global speaker – motivating and empowering secular and church conference attendees. Pastor Barnard has ministered in Africa, the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, Europe, India, the British and U.S. Virgin Islands, Mexico and Panama. He has also hosted various television and radio programs throughout his ministry. Pastor Ray is married to Pastor Tracey Barnard and they have one beautiful daughter, Rayna Elise, who is the joy and delight of her parents.
Also joining Pastor Ray this year, Leon Timbo will be leading the worship!
