About Us

Thank you for your interest in learning more about Reaching Across Ministries, an organization based in San Antonio, Texas that began assisting small churches in 1996 and later in 2006 became a formal 501 C3 nonprofit religious corporation.

The ministry is led by its director Rick Lay who spent a decade working for a multinational corporation operating in 13 Spanish speaking countries and then 25 years running a private franchise business in San Antonio.  Using this bilingual, bicultural and organizational background, Rick and his wife, with the help of a few businessmen from San Antonio felt the leading of the Lord to start a ministry with a passion to offer discipleship training to pastors. Now, with the assistance of a select board of directors and their experience in missions, the ministry provides assistance and encouragement to pastors of churches in disadvantaged areas. Reaching Across Ministries is an evangelical non-denominational organization. It is Bible-based, and offers its training material to all religious groups desiring to further investigate and learn about making disciples using biblical principles.   Since its beginning, the ministry has relied solely on the support of churches and individuals who see the ministry as an extension of the passion that the Lord has placed in them to support discipleship.
