Originally from Oklahoma, but raised a Texan in a pastor’s home, Pastor Ray loves Jesus, the church, his beautiful girls, the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Oklahoma Sooners.  Pastor Ray is married to the lovely Sarah Chisolm Miller.  They met on a mission trip to Kenya, and it turned out that they lived a mile from each other in Waco, TX.  Sarah and Ray have two beautiful girls – Abigail and Katherine, and also twin girls Maggie and Ellen who are with Jesus.  The Millers love living in Nashville and in the Crieve Hall neighborhood.  They are blessed to be at CBC and pray to carry the blessing of the Gospel to Nashville and beyond. 

Ray loves to teach and preach.  You will see Ray coming to life when explaining the Word of God, leading the people of God in worship, and overseeing their spiritual growth by walking alongside as a fellow struggler in the journey with God.
