After a near-fatal car accident in 1995, Air Force Veteran Ray Oster was permanently paralyzed in his right arm, hand, and fingers. He suffered from chronic pain injury, major depression and was forced to medically retire from his profession as a Law Enforcement Officer. He later worked as a social worker for disadvantage families at a Head Start program, however his chronic pain from his injuries prohibited him from working at his workplace while taking medication for pain management. With A broken spirit and contrite heart, Ray became an alcoholic and affected his family in the worst way. Fed up with the devil’s mess, Ray Oster made an outcry to the Lord for deliverance. It wasn’t overnight, but after years of seeking God, receiving counseling, and receiving genuine support from his loving wife, his prayers were answered!
Ray Oster used his college degree to cross train into information technology with an emphasis on digital marketing. Through his father’s background as a COGIC Pastor, music influencer, and his own life changing circumstances, Devine Jamz Gospel Network was created in 2009. It was originally a Christian and Gospel Radio Station with Ray hosting weekly roundtable talk shows to support the broken spirit and contrite heart.
