Pastor Ray has served as a pastor for 40 years and is currently serving as a pastor to terminally ill patients. In his current role, he sees 150 deaths a year. In his past and current role, he has learned some truths and principles that he would love to share with you.
I have known Ray Johnson since he was a college student. Ray was one of my top leaders in helping guide and grow a large and dynamic college ministry within a church setting. He was highly committed, faithful, hard-working, energetic, and creative. He also displayed a godly spirit that was manifested in a dynamic personal relationship and what today we call high EQ. Ray is also committed to God's Word and is theologically minded and understands that it is God, through His Spirit and His Word, that changes people.
Ray has served in many different staff positions--lead pastor, associate pastor, discipleship pastor, and children & student pastor. As a result, Ray has a deep and broad understanding of what it takes to lead a church that is spiritually healthy and effective in growing both qualitatively and quantitatively. Put another way, Ray understands the two essential purposes of the church--to reach the lost and disciple fellow believers. He also possesses practical insight to the many important leadership principles including crafting a compelling vision, developing a ministry strategy, leading change, managing conflict, equipping the saints, leading the staff, managing the budget and many other important fundamentals of leading and guiding a church.

He knows the joys and heartaches of ministry, and wants to helps pastors, leaders, and families find "life" again!
THE EZEKIEL GROUP was born out of a desire to help churches and pastors "live again." It is estimated that 65-90% of churches are in need of some kind of revitalization and that 7,000-8,000 churches close their doors every year! That number is staggering! In addition, 1,500-1,700 pastors leave their church every month (most forced out)! Many never return...
