In 1989, she founded Angie Ray Ministries, called “Church on the Rock”. Her sessions of prayers were held in her living room in Country Club Hills, Illinois.
Years later, the ministry bought her a place in its current location in Matteson, Illinois. Just like any doctor, Angie Ray’s goal was to provide assistance to people and guide them with the help of spirituality.
