Ray is fascinated with what happens when two people meet in true community. He has worked with homeless and street-involved youth in Toronto, spending days and nights with them, participating in weekly outreach and directing the program. His passion is to see life transformation through the indwelling work of the Holy Spirit and through simple love (1 Peter 4:8). While not working, he practices his counselling skills as he cultivates toward a registered psychotherapist designation. He loves to engage over meals, cycling and the outdoors. He has travelled widely, spending time in Europe, Japan and Australia.
Before joining the 105 Gibson Team, Monica had been a cross-cultural missionary, leading an international church planting team among the Japanese for 10 years and was a chaplain in nursing homes for 11 years later on in Toronto. During that period of time, Monica worked closely with older adults and has grown a deep affection for them. In view of the great demand, she believes that serving older adults at 105 Gibson will be a blessing to the whole community through helping the seniors and their families.
As the Director of Youth Services at 105 Gibson Centre, Sophia believes that young people are given with a reservoir of talents and dreams. Her goal is to get to know the young people in the community, journey with them and witness their progress of engaging in their vocation with contribution to society. She hopes that 105 Gibson Centre will serve as a home where they experience love, faith, and hope, and would be nurtured to become world citizens.
