Ray Plummer was born in Evergreen Park, Illinois and spent his childhood and young adult years growing up on Chicago’s south side. At the age of 19 he responded to the call of the Holy Spirit and accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord of his life.
After graduating from high school in 1964 Ray continued his education at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan where, during his freshman year, he was impressed he should enter the gospel ministry. In 1969 he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Theology and later that year was married to Sharon Bender of Mt. Vernon, Ohio. In 1973 Pastor Plummer received his Master’s Degree in religion from Andrews University and was subsequently ordained to the gospel ministry in 1977.
Ray Plummer has since served as a minister in the Seventh-day Adventist Church for over 35 years, pastoring districts in the states of Georgia, Wisconsin and Illinois. He has served as Pastor of the Champaign and Danville, Illinois Churches since 2004 and retired in 2014. Mr. and Mrs. Plummer have three married daughters: Dana, Amy and Carrie. Favorite pastimes include studying history, helping others to experience the power of Christ in their lives, and enjoying model trains.
