Meet The Team

Founder / Adviser

Devine Jamz Gospel Network FounderAfter a near-fatal car accident, U.S. Air Force Veteran Ray was permanently paralyzed in his right arm, hand, and fingers. He was forced to medically retire from his profession as a Law Enforcement Officer. He suffered from chronic pain, depression, and became an alcoholic who affected his family in the worst way. Fed up with the devil’s mess, Ray made an outcry to the Lord for help. Eventually, his prayers were answered. It wasn’t overnight, but after years of seeking God, receiving counseling, and receiving genuine support from a loving wife, Ray has defeated the enemy! He used his college degree to cross train into information technology with an emphasis on digital marketing. With his father’s background as a COGIC Pastor and music influencer, Ray created Devine Jamz Gospel Network (2009), which was originally a Christian Music Radio Station with weekly round-table talk shows to help the broken spirit and contrite heart. Today, Devine Jamz Gospel Network is one of the preferred Christian music marketing promoters that connects recording artists to a target audience using direct marketing methodologies and current technology.

Blog Contributor Liaison

Vernon Dale Cook - PR ContributorCurrently, Minister Vernon Dale Cook is enrolled in college to receive his Master of Ministry. He is planning to go out and preach everywhere that God leads him to preach (Acts 8:4). The minister believes he is constantly being rewritten and rebuilt by God. He believes he is here for one reason and that is to change people lives by leading them to Christ. "Life takes you many places", Minister Dale states. "But, why let some of those places stop you from your calling God intended you to use?”

Dale has been contributing public relations videos and blogs at Devine Jamz Gospel Network for several years now. He works hard sharing content, video sermons, and his wisdom in an educational format. His messages are God sent and very powerful. His life is a testimony in itself and it reflects how God’s words are exactly what they say they are.

Special Recognition

Brenda Solomon, the General Manager with Devine Jamz Gospel Network stated, "Minister Dale blogs do not go unnoticed". She states, "by far his blog ministry has touched me and the lives of many other readers who view our posts from several social networks.” Brenda continues, “In fact, Minister Dale once wrote a blog, "A memo from Heaven" that was an on time message for her personally. Just moments before she read Minister Dale's blog, she had received a negative and irritating reply to one of our social network post, which included an offer for our free Christian marketing promo at the time. For the life of her she could not understand why would a person, particularly a Christian seeking our free services add a comment that was so mean and ungrateful! Now, being that we all are own different faith levels and for Brenda she stated that God was still working on her at the time when she needed corrected, her first thought was to reply with a remark to tell how ungrateful and mean spirited they are! But, she unintentionally came across Minister Dale's blog that described how to ‘Conquer evil by doing good.’ She immediately caught hold of her self and became the Christian she says she is supposed to be by brushing off the negativity off her shoulder.

It was Dale’s illustrations and deep thoughtful arrangement of quotes from the bible that gave meaning to the context that depicted Brenda’s real life experiences! She knew right then, God was telling her to reply back to that person with kindness and understanding. Understanding we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12).”

It’s because those types of spirit led videos and blogs Dale presents is why we particularly pay tribute to his partnership. At Devine Jamz Gospel Network, we thank Dale for allowing God to use him. Brenda states, “I am forever grateful and honored to have him on our staff and honored to fellowship with an anointed and creative Christian!” Minister Dale’s willingness to take on the task as our Head PR Contributor gives great credit to the kingdom of God!
