Rhombus began as the need for informing and strengthening people and families was identified. The struggles of society, such as, domestic violence, addictions, parenting struggles, divorce, human trafficking, and much more are deteriorating family units and though help is available, the help does not always appear accessible to many populations. Rhombus was started to increase the access of information on mental illness, relationship struggles, emotional difficulties, family problems and other important needs. Rhombus first started as a content development company in an effort to have information available and next, several platforms were developed to disseminate this content. Rhombus began facilitating Family Conferences to engage families and community members with valuable information by experts. Next, Rhombus became a continuing education provider, with a mission to both advance the skill of Christian counselors and increase information and training to those not seeking higher education. Rhombus has offered certification programs to train people with counseling and coaching skills and information to help others with the many identified struggles in families and communities. Rhombus University was started as a powerful platform for increasing professionally trained and credentialed Christian counselors who could also increase the training and education in many cultures and languages. Our goal is to train, mentor, and equip people who can turn around and inform and equip others in their families, churches, and communities.
Rhombus University seeks to develop biblically-minded professionals to strengthen and equip individuals, families, and communities through an affordable, high-quality, online education.
The vision of Rhombus University is to increase the number of effective counselors, psychologists, and leaders ready to help the needs of their communities through increased accessibility to a quality, skill-based, comprehensive, online curriculum in counseling and psychology taught from a biblical philosophy by experienced clinicians utilizing innovative technology. Students and faculty will use the University as a platform and support system for collaborating with local individuals and agencies to develop strategies to meet the needs of their communities.
Upon completion of the program, our graduates will be equipped to implement a biblical philosophy and knowledge of psychology to improving the health of individuals, families, and communities. Specifically, the graduate will practice and engage in the following attributes:
Dr. Ray believes professionalism is the key to navigating a biblical philosophy while interacting with the community .

Everyone on the Rhombus team has a key role in the growth and development of Rhombus; this means Rhombus is always looking for ways to allow each member to grow and develop their capabilities and gifts to their fullest potential so they are able to maximize their effort as they work with the community. The Rhombus team is always looking for ways to boost their performance through training, certifications, and team building events. Dr. Ray feels the vehicle to truly make a difference is through an army of individuals using their particular gifts and strengths toward a common goal. The third pillar of Rhombus is Feedback, open communication on what needs to be improved and improving it quickly. By everyone having the same platform to give and receive feedback, positive change comes quicker and better.
