Elder, Primary Teaching Pastor and Pastor over Adult Ministries
Ray is the main preaching elder at Island Grace Church. He was born in Honolulu and lived his early life there. The US Navy took his family to Subic Bay, Philippines and then to Northern California, where he was a youth pastor and elder at Community Bible Church in Vallejo, California. There, he attended Grace School of Theology and Ministry and The Cornerstone Seminary. Burdened by the Lord and affirmed by the church, Ray was sent back to Hawaii with seven other families from Community Bible Church and they planted Island Grace Church in 2009. The preaching of Christ and the making of disciples continues to be His burden to this day. Ray and his wife Lirio have two sons (Brandon and Sam), and a daughter and son-in-law (Marjory & Alex).
Elder and Pastor over Music Ministry
Jay was born in Honolulu but moved to Vallejo, California to graduate from Vallejo High School and CSU Sacramento. He transplanted from Community Bible Church in Vallejo, California (cbcvallejo.org) where he served as an Elder, Music Pastor, College\Career Pastor, marriage counselor, and attended the Cornerstone Seminary. Communicating his burden for the islands to the elders at CBC, they sent Jay and family to Hawaii to plant Island Grace Church. Here he serves as an elder, music pastor and Bible study leader. One of his greatest joys is training men through discipleship. He married Angeli in 1991 and have three sons: Jonathon, David, and Andrew. You might catch Jay and family at the beach for some SUP (stand-up paddle) time or at the local hardware store loading up supplies for some random home project.

He graduated from Hanalani Schools and Hawaii Pacific University, and is currently working in the engineering department for a local telecommunications company. Ron has been attending IGC since 2012, where his heart for serving and pointing our church to Christ has led him to serve in our Crosswalk Youth Ministry and Music & Sound Ministry. In his spare time, you might catch him relaxing at the beach, watching a film at the theater, or at home practicing the culinary arts.
