Ray Don began his work with the  church in Salado in May of 2013. He
graduated from Angelo State University and received his ministry training at
the Southwest Bible Institute in San Angelo, TX.  He was then the
youth and pulpit minister for the Mertzon Highway Church of Christ in
Eldorado, TX for four years and then
was youth minister and then pulpit minister for the Murray Street Church
of Christ in Rockdale, TX for eight years.
   His better half is definitely his beautiful wife, Mary (Craiker) McIntosh.
Like Ray Don, Mary's family is full of ministers and Church leaders.  They
have two terrific children: Titus and Bethany.
