Pastor Roy began preaching in his teens and believes his ultimate life calling is to love God and love people. Over the years, he has served in the local church as a Children’s Pastor, Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, and Interim Senior Pastor. Also involved in leadership on a district-level, Pastor Roy was a member of both Youth & Children's Ministry Advisory Boards, and he served as the head of the district Children’s Ministry Missions program.
A native Californian, he and his four siblings grew up all over the Bay Area, but it wasn't until the mid-1990s that he relocated to Sacramento to attend Capital Bible College. Pastor Roy has been serving in pastoral ministry for over 30 years. He is a credentialed minister with the IMF (International Ministerial Fellowship) and currently credentialing with the Church of God.
Pastor Roy has had the privilege of preaching several youth and children's summer camps, conferences and conventions. He has been a featured guest speaker for church revivals, camp meetings and Sunday morning services. Pastor Roy has also preached and taught internationally, as he has directed over 15 mission trips to Mexico. He and his wife, Kelly, have partnered together in ministry since they were married in 1997. Pastor Roy is a genuine and fun-loving guy with a huge heart! As an avid Las Vegas Raiders fan, he thoroughly enjoys watching football, his most favorite vacation spot is Disneyland, and he loves fulfilling the call of God on his life to "love God and love people!"
Pastor Tim and Sara began serving in the local church as children and then felt the call of God to serve Him in pastoral ministry. They were married in December of 1995 and began full-time youth ministry.
Over the last 25 years, they have served as pastors in Children's, Youth and College ministries, as Associate Pastors, Interim Senior Pastors, Church Planners and most recently, as Church Planting Missionaries in the Philippines, where they planted several churches in Manilla, specifically Eastwood City working and Ortigas with the young professionals throughout the metropolitan city.
Both Pastor Tim and Sara are native Californians, but Sara also had the privilege to be raised in a Pastor's/Missionary's home. She spent her high school years in South Africa, while Pastor Tim grew up in South Sacramento. It was in 1991 that Sara's father became the pastor of the local church where Pastor Tim was attending. They began a relationship and the rest, as they say, is history! Pastor Tim says, "There is a God and He loves me!" because He sent Sara all the way from Africa ... just for him!
Together they have three almost-grown children that serve in Ministry with them. Messina, Masella and Isaac have all served Jesus locally and abroad, as well as in some unique and remarkable ways and places. All because his children believe, "Here I am, Lord, use me."
