Hello! My name is Bruce Bray. Here is a little bit of my story. Wendy and I have been married for 50 years and counting. We have been blessed with three sons and one daughter. Our sons are married and have further blessed us with seven grandchildren. Our daughter is in a serious relationship and our prayer is that she will be soon married and that more grandchildren will follow. Wendy and I started dating a year after high school and married some 15 months later. After marriage, Wendy worked full time, so I could continue college, while working part time. We have lived in metro Atlanta our entire marriage.
In 2021 I retired from Emory Healthcare as Division Director for 7 clinical services located at 4 Emory Hospitals, including Emory University Hospital. I do not see myself as a retiree, because God has plans for me to continue living out my purpose. One opportunity came through an invitation from my friend Gary Smith. Gary asked me to consider an Advisor role in Iron Forums when I retired. I visited an Iron Forums monthly meeting a week after leaving Emory and accepted the role as Advisor the following month.
As an Advisor at Iron Forums, there are several men that I meet with regularly, in addition to our monthly half day sessions. Most of the time we discuss faith, family, their businesses, and we end in prayer. It is my goal to find out something new about them each time we meet. Forming and growing in fellowship as we grow in our faith has been one of the many blessings in serving as an IF Advisor. It is a high privilege and honor to spend quality time with younger men to listen, encourage and see them live out the plans God has for them. I am active at 12Stone Sugarloaf as an Greeter/Usher and serve on the Medical Team, active in a weekly couples small group and in mission with Legacy Builders in the area of Outreach. I’m very active in the EMMAUS Community and meet weekly with 3 other men in an accountability group. I also serve as a consultant and medical expert with several legal firms.
At Emory Healthcare I enjoyed teaching. This video is one of my presentations at the Southeastern Critical Care Summit. I was a member of the faculty, leading workshops and lecturing on numerous clinical topics.
