Roy was born in 1968 and raised in the environment of the carnival and circus. At the age of 19, his conscience began to show him that there was something wrong with the “carney” way of life. Although he knew nothing about the Bible, he felt a force pulling him away from the lifestyle of his parents.Months after severing his ties to the carnival, a friend invited him to attend a church service where the Word of God was taught and Jesus Christ was exalted. Suddenly, Roy came to grips with his lost condition and his need for a Savior. He received Christ into his life that very night.
Although Roy did not know his exact calling, he was quite sure God would reveal it to him in due season. Upon the urging of his pastor, Roy reluctantly agreed to serve as a counselor at a children's camp. During which God gave him a heart for kids and called him into full-time children's ministry.
For years he had been embarrassed of his “carnival” upbringing, but suddenly the Lord showed him that his childhood had been a training ground to help him reach children with the gospel.
Today, Roy uses many of the skills he learned as a child to capture the attention of kids and tell them about Jesus.
