1 Timothy 1:5
But the goal of our instruction is love from pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.
Pastor Ray and Darlene Brasher, his wife of 56 years, have been shepherding the flock of First Baptist Church in Tracy CA for 45 years. Ray earned his Bachelor of Science degree at Western Baptist Bible College, now known as Corban University. He preaches the Word without apology purposing to win souls, change lives, and aid in the spiritual growth of the saints.
Both avid fishermen, Pastor Ray and Darlene not only fish for men they also passionately pursue the rainbow trout of the Sierra Nevada streams in their leisure time.
God has uniquely equipped Pastor Ray and Darlene with the ability to minister to the very young and old alike. They are the parents of three, in-laws of three, grandparents to seven and great grandparents to one very special little Lexi Jane. Both Ray and Darlene are involved in the lives of their active mothers, each over 95 years of age, as well as with the older parishioners in their congregation.
