The word “thankful” doesn’t even scratch the surface of how we Baysiders feel about our Senior Pastors! God has hand-picked these men and their incredible wives to lead us with their vision, integrity, passion, and humility. And they all wanted to be sure that we heard from them this entire week, about what they’re thankful for. Today, it’s our beloved founding pastors, Ray and Carol Johnston!

Ray Johnston


Pastor Ray Johnston has a rich and varied background as a university and graduate-school professor, speaker, writer, and founder of Thrive Communications. He is also the founding pastor of Bayside Church in the Sacramento, California suburb of Granite Bay, which Ray describes as “a church for people who don’t like church.” Bayside has grown into one of the largest churches in the nation with more than 12,000 people coming together every weekend at the Granite Bay campus and thousands more in multiple affiliated churches throughout the Sacramento region.
