Ray Young
Founder and President of Matrix Ministries

After a 28-year career with EDS, Ray was part of a corporate downsizing that stopped him in his tracks. It caused him to take stock of his life and ask what God might have him do next.  His passion for missions and desire for others to experience God’s abundance through serving led him to create the non-profit organization now called Matrix Ministries.Ray has led and participated on 35+ mission teams to 11 countries.
