Born August 15, 1948, in Shreveport, Louisiana, Dr. Artis Ray Cash attended Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament School, Notre Dame High School, and Booker T. Washington High School. After graduating in 1966 he attended Grambling College before relocating to Los Angeles, California where he attended several other colleges, including People’s College of Law.
Dr. Cash opened Arsaka Research Company in 1979, which grew into maintaining the drainage system for the City of Los Angeles. The business later expanded into the building trade, employing upward of 75 people at one point.
In 1979 Dr. Cash also surrendered the dark side of his life for a full life in Jesus Christ. For 3 years he spoke before the Full Gospel Businessmen’s circuit testifying of the things of the past until the days of preparation were fulfilled so that he began a life of helping society overcome problems that he himself was once part of. His advocacy brought him before the Congress of the United States at a congressional hearing concerning lack of equality in governmental contracts. Dr. Cash received many awards, including Man of the Year Award from Crenshaw Christian Center, and other commendations for services rendered to the community.
Married 24 years to wife Debora and a father of five, Dr. Cash returned to Shreveport in 1995, where he founded Shreveport Christian Church.
