About Us

It’s hard to know who to trust.

Giving is exhilarating. It allows you to partner in what God is doing around the world, but knowing how to give can be challenging. When you partner with us, we want the who, what, and how of our vision to be crystal clear.

Our Beliefs:

We know you have a heart for the most impoverished, vulnerable, and hard-to-reach places on earth.

We do, too.

First and foremost, we are followers and servants of Jesus Christ; we are Christians. Secondly, we are evangelical and adhere to the Statement of Faith of the National Association of Evangelicals as stated below.


The corporation shall abide by the following Statement of Faith:

  • We believe, the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe, that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe, in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe, that, for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • We believe, in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe, in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe, in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe, that human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other in the monogamous union of one genetic male and one genetic female.
  • We believe, that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end and thus worthy of concern for physical, emotional, and spiritual needs at all stages of life.

Dr. Ray, and Linda Noah - The Founders of Petros Network

How God’s Kingdom works — small beginnings, unlikely sources, invisible activity, irresistible growth — that is the Petros Network story.

– Ray Noah

Dr. Ray and Linda Noah


Ray & Linda Noah have been serving in pastoral ministry for over forty years. Ray has a Master of Arts in Theology from Northwest University and a Doctor of Ministry from the Assembly of God Theological Seminary. Linda has been involved in leadership development in faith and business sectors and is currently completing her Master of Arts in Leadership Studies.

For the past twenty years, Ray and Linda have planted churches in East Africa. In 2012, the success of this church planting effort led the Noah’s to form the Petros Network, a ministry dedicated to planting churches among unreached people groups and equipping these churches & leaders to be catalysts of transformation in the villages in which they are planted.

Currently in five countries, the resulting Redemptive Lift keeps multiplying.


In 2002, the Blair Foundation, led by Charles Blair, was contacted by the president of the Benishangul-Gumuz Region of Ethiopia. He believed the Gospel was the hope of his region and that through trained leaders and energized local churches his region could be transformed spiritually, socially, and economically.

Within a few months of that important meeting, Ray Noah became president of the Blair Foundation and worked alongside his mentor and friend, Charles Blair, to begin the dream of transforming Africa. Miraculously, within two years, they raised enough money to launch 1,000 churches in rural Ethiopia. Not long after, Charles became ill. Ray and Linda Noahs kept going and formed Petros Network to fulfill the vision to launch and disciple 1,000 church planters in Benishangul-Gumuz, Ethiopia.

Today, Petros partners with denominations and organizations to launch efforts in Ethiopia, South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, and Myanmar, training and empowering a network of in-country leaders serving in underserved, unreached communities.

The impact is exponential. Click to view our impact to date.
