Founder and Pastor of Temple Baptist Church, Kalamazoo, Michigan 1972-1978. Started Temple Baptist Christian School.

Pastor of Harbor Baptist Church, Hampton, Virginia for more than twenty years. Earned his Doctorate of Divinity.

Roy served in the United States Air Force as a driver for the General. He thought it a great joke to get paid for doing what he loved to do, serve.

Pastor's favorite scripture verse:
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." Jeremiah 33:3

One great man of God wrote, "The man of God who truly preaches the Word will finally give up the idea of being known. If he preaches Christ, his reputation will constantly decrease and Christ will increase. True prophets die unknown. God gives them their dues only after they die."

"And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:40

Rest well Pastor. You will be forever loved and missed.
