Reverend Raymond A. DeLaurier was called to shepherd FCC of Kulm in the early spring of 2010. Pastor Ray graduated with a Doctor of Ministry degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in May 2003. This doctoral program tract was “The Preacher and the Message.”  This course of study in preaching, how people listen, as well as teaching has equipped Pastor Ray to deliver quality expository sermons.

He earned a Masters’ of Divinity degree with high honors from Western Conservative Baptist Seminary in Portland, Oregon, in May 1992. Ray was already serving as an interim pastor when he graduated. Shortly after graduation, he faced the Ordination Council of the Ministers of the Northwest Conservative Baptist Association, for a four hour examination of his calling, ministry philosophy and doctrine. He passed this oral examination by unanimous vote in May 1992. Four days after the ordination council, Ray flew to Israel to study at the Institute of Holy Land Studies, in Jerusalem. This summer class had a dramatic impact on his life and ministry.

Upon returning from Israel, he accepted a call to be the Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of St. Johns, in Portland, Oregon. He ministered there from October 1991, to his calling to Pine Mountain in August, 1996, and then to Mountain Park Baptisy Chuch in Frazier Park, CA in February 2007.
