Rey Torres was born and raised in the US Territory of Puerto Rico (hoping it becomes State 51) and moved later to New York, where he has lived for many years.  He is a lifelong Conservative, a Healthcare Administrator, and a dedicated Bible Theology and Christian Education Instructor in New York for over thirty years.  Rey studied Engineering at The University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus (UPRM), and Health Care Administration at Indiana Wesleyan University.  Growing up in Puerto Rico, “hard work” was a way of life. He watched his mother work very hard to provide for their family; these formattable years, though very humble, sowed seeds of diligence and determination.  Rey is an apologist and author, publishing papers such as “Quantum God: The logical implications of Quantum Mechanics and the existence of God” a persuasive document using scientific reasoning to prove the existence of God.  In addition, Rey is a professional musician, a recording artist, and a writer for many Christian artists as Sound of Praise Ministries, Yadira Coradín, Michael Rodriguez, Josue Sánchez, Angel Maldonado, and his wife, Mairén Medina-Torres.  An ex-minister, Rey and his wife Mairén are devoted Evangelical Christians, active with local community outreach events, international missions, and at their local congregation.
