Beyond Compare Ministries’ desire is to see lives transformed by the incomparable love of Christ.

Our Story

Beyond Compare Ministries was founded in November 2013 by friends Jerry Paladino and Rauna May. A reconnection between old friends, Rauna and Marianne, was the catalyst for Beyond Compare Ministries. After reconnecting online Rauna visited Marianne and her husband Jerry in Mexico, where they were involved in missionary work. 

Beyond Compare Ministries' desire is to see lives changed by the love of Christ through the combined efforts of Rauna preaching the Word of God by the power of the Holy Spirit, together with Jerry's anointed music. When possible Marianne joins them in their travels and works tirelessly behind the scenes in prayer, encouragement, and support.

The name Beyond Compare Ministries comes from the title of a song that Jerry performs. Beyond Compare expresses how God's love is beyond anything else on this earth. Rauna and Jerry's hope is that as they travel lives will be touched and hearts transformed through this love that is BEYOND COMPARE. Rauna, Jerry, and Marianne all have a passion to participate in bringing about “a better world for all," as another one of Jerry's songs states, where “Love Will Reign One Day.”

Rauna and Jerry’s hope is that as they travel lives will be touched and hearts transformed through this love that is BEYOND COMPARE.

Rauna May

Rauna May has been in full time ministry for over forty-five years. For eight years, until returning to Canada over six years ago, she was one of the pastors at New Hope Christian Fellowship, a church of 14,500 weekly congregants in Honolulu, Hawaii. While with New Hope she also planted a New Hope Spanish campus. 

She has traveled as an international conference speaker, for many years, ministering by the power of the Holy Spirit in over one hundred and twenty countries. For the sixteen years prior to moving to Hawaii, she was the senior pastor of a Foursquare church that she planted in New Westminster, B.C. Canada. This church had a widely impacting, life-changing outreach to the poor, drug addicts, alcoholics, and prostitutes. So many lives were touched and addicts set free that the ministry was recognized by all levels of the Canadian government.

Over the years, other than planting the church in New Westminster she was part of the pastoral team of other church plants and on staff at another church. She was involved with a large radio and television ministry and also had her own program as well on a popular secular radio station.

Since returning to Canada from Hawaii, Rauna has been involved in church planting and outreach ministry in Metro Vancouver. 

Over the years, in many countries, she has been considered a pastor to pastors, and a mentor to many young emerging leaders. During her time in Hawaii she was also a professor at a Christian College. 

Although others have given her many titles: Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, Teacher, Evangelist, it is her true desire that she be known as a Godly woman and a friend.

Rauna is married to Bob, her husband of years. They have three grown children and five grandchildren.

Jerry Paladino

Jerry Paladino has been in ministry for over forty-five years, serving mostly in South America and Asia. He is an accomplished composer/recording artist whose songs have been recorded in various languages, and which now have touched many around the world. Jerry has dedicated his life to reaching out to others however possible, but principally through music, recognizing that the media of music is one of the most powerful tools we have for healing and restoring lives, one which is instrumental in helping bring people into a deeper relationship with the King of kings and Lord of lords. 

He met Marianne in the Philippines where they married and served together for four years as missionaries. There they began a family which they continued to raise in Japan where they lived and worked for another fourteen years. For the past sixteen years they have resided in Mexico; most of their children have now moved on to their home countries where they are continuing their studies and following their career choices.
