Dr. M. Ray Brewer - District Superintendent
Ray’s two best decisions were to respond to the Lord’s call for salvation at age 5, and to ask Kim Smith (Brewer) to marry him in 1976. Ray and Kim have been blessed with two sons—Brandon and Jason. Brandon, a medical student at the University of Missouri, lives with his wife Emily in Columbia, Missouri; Jason and his wife, Faith, live in Springfield, Mo.
After receiving the M.Div. degree from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in San Francisco, Ray joined the staff of Tiffany Fellowship Assembly of God in Kansas City as Youth Pastor in 1978 to work with his father, Dr. Paul Brewer. He became Tiffany’s Senior Pastor in 1986, and completed his D.Min degree through Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1989, and was elected as District Superintendent in 2007.
Ray represents the third generation of Pentecostal preachers in the Brewer family, and celebrates the grace of God in that every family member for five generations has testified of a saving experience with the Lord Jesus Christ!
In his spare time Ray collects nativity sets and frequents used book stores.
