In 1994, Ray Mott answered the call of God upon his life and entered into pastoral ministry. Along with his wife Sherrie, their five children, and a few friends who also believed in that call, they opened their home for weekly Bible studies. That Bible study has since blossomed into a vibrant, culturally diverse congregation now known as Family Christian Center. Family Christian Center is a cell-based church with currently over 20 small groups, nestled in the heart of the city of New Rochelle.

In addition to role as the Senior Pastor of FCC, Pastor Mott also serves as the NY State coordinator for The Remnant; a national gathering of Christian leaders, which carries a mandate to restore integrity to America’s leaders in every sphere of society.

Pastor Mott also serves as the Senior Apostle of the Kingdom First Global Network, which provides covering for several churches, both here and abroad. The Kingdom First Global Network was started in order to facilitate the needs of the pastors and churches that began to look to him for direction and leadership over the years. Additionally, the network, through partnership with S.U.R.G.E, is engaged with strategic church-planting initiatives and leadership development the Middle East and Africa.

Pastor Mott is the founder of Korban Community Development Corp. Korban CDC was established in 2008 to (among other things) create a pathway to home ownership. The organization seeks to provide education and training in financial literacy, career orientation and life-skills. It is also committed to community outreach efforts that feed, clothe and offer shelter those who are among the poorest in our community.

Pastor Mott is a passionate leader and a gifted teacher whom God has anointed with wisdom and courage to declare His timeless truths in an age of compromise. The recurring themes of his message are restoration, the kingdom of God, and destiny. He believes that God restores us in order that we might fulfill our destinies. And that destiny is to manifest the kingdom of God on earth before the glorious return of our Lord, who will return for a triumphant church.

Married to his wife Sherrie for over 23 years, they are the proud parents of five children.

Pastor Mott has earned a Masters in Urban Studies from the Alliance Theological Seminary (ATS), a Masters of Divinity and doctoral studies in urban ministry from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary (GCTS).
