Leadership is a combination of why and qualifications. For Ray the why is simple. He is alive today because of Unity – making service to Unity a way of life as a commitment realized from the gift given to him by Unity – his life. His qualifications are based upon his education – a Masters in plan Business and numerous certification. Those as well as his life experiences of working in many highly responsible positions, including law enforcement, banking, his own businesses, teaching, and above all, being a parent, grandparent, and a human being. The combination of all of this leads him to serve others in and out of Unity, believing he has much yet to offer through serving.
