Richard Raygor and Time Banking

Richard Raygor was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota where he began a twenty-five year career as a computer programmer and an Independent consultant. In 1999 he and his wife moved to Seattle where he was planning to retire.

In 2003 he had a heart attack and received a sextuple bypass. Richard shared, " It was at that time I started doing some soul-searching. I guess survival instinct kicked in.

Approximately six months later, he was informed they purchased a vendor-written health insurance system written in Unix. This meant all IBM main framers jobs were going to India as they phased out the old system and the new system in.

Rich shared, "I landed on my feet then and had faith I would again. I was fortunate. I trusted in a God who I knew would take care of things."

Richard had always wanted to work for IBM. So he was able to begin there. "I spent over twenty five years solving problems for government and business systems. I believed God was now sending me a different direction. To solve problems in social and biological systems."

His ideas for social systems, poverty and unemployment focus on a different strategy.

"I think it's time to seek God to give us ideas for new businesses. I have some, and it will take time to get them off the ground but in the meantime we can create jobs for people and reward them with things other than money."

Richard would like to introduce people to the idea of "Time-banking". "It is a type of system based on Christ's commandment to love our neighbor as ourselves and that we will reap what we sow."
