Ray Tripi has been leading and teaching about worship for over 35 years. He believes that “true worship” bypasses all cultural barriers and allows those involved in the worship experience to enter into pure “Throne Room” worship, for the one purpose of giving glory and adoration unto the Lord.
Ray believes that our worship must transcend us from the natural into the supernatural - the spirit realm. Our worship must not be something we do at specific times but rather it must become a lifestyle, an attitude of the heart, which then allows the true worshipper to enter into the presence of the One who alone is worthy to be worshiped and glorified. He believes that, “Worship is not for the believer but rather it is totally unto, and for, the pleasure of our King."
Ray has written over 100 worship and praise songs that have been birthed by the move of God in the ministries in which he has been involved with. He has led times of worship in venues both nationally and internationally. His desire is to train and equip both the worshipper and the worship leader to become the “true worshippers” that the Lord seeks after.
Ray has also been used in the areas of teaching and writing. He has been a speaker for Corporate Gatherings, Conferences as well as Small Groups. He has established a unique small group and corporate gathering format known as "BibleShare." He has written many books and study guides as well as many, many essays on relevant topics for the Body of Christ today.
Ray is passionately married to Trish and together they have nine children and fifteen grandchildren, and counting — grandchildren that is!!
