After surviving two major depressions, the last time coming within five minutes of losing his life, Ray Hurst, or as he’s often referred to “Papa Ray”, is now passionate about teaching people how to change the meaning of what happened in their past, so it will not be a part of their future.
Papa Ray has been married to the same amazing woman for 36+ years, he is an international speaker and coach, a pastor, missionary, author, artist, and poet. He has started and operated three companies and a ministry.
Ray is now building a local and national outreach to raise awareness of absent and abusive fathers. His first book, “Daddy, Why Don’t You Love Me?” will be published before year-end. There is a version for sons and another for daughters.
As a coach and mentor, he guides people into having a major life-changing breakthrough within a few hours. Papa Ray wants to be for the world what the world was not for him when he most needed to be free from the abuse he experienced.
He is also working on a community action program to help people understand emotional awareness.
