Pastor Ray Nalette, Director of Ministry Services
Ray Nalette has partnered with Jimmy Cazin since the church’s inception in January 2011 with an extensive leadership background. Most recently, Ray serves as the owner/president of Pivotal Technology Consulting and as an independent IT consultant for ActiveIDM. In ministry, he served as a deacon at a local church, overseeing their Care Ministry as well as a musician on the worship team. Currently, Ray is enrolled as a student at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, working on his Masters of Divinity degree. The North Point model aligns directly with Ray’s heart for those who do not have a relationship with God as he was once an unchurched person. Ray and his wife, Colleen, have two beautiful daughters Emma and Julia. Their favorite family activities include camping, going to the beach, and hanging out in their community with friends and neighbors.
