Roy originally came from Christian Life Centre, Sydney, in 1979, to study at Christian Life Bible College and completed his diploma in 1980. Following his graduation, he remained in the Lower Hutt Assembly and has since been involved in most areas of that church’s life and leadership. After working for Telecom NZ for eleven years he came onto the church staff in 1992 as the Assistant Pastor.
In 1996 he became the Senior Pastor and in that year was also appointed as the Principal of the Wellington Regional Bible School, an extension training centre of the Advance Ministry Training Centre, Auckland, and remained its principal till its closure in 2002. He was a member of the Board of Advance Ministry Training Centre, Auckland, from 1997 till 2006.
As the senior pastor he, with the leadership team, has led the church (now known as “Hutt City Church”) through a period of transition and he considers it a great privilege to be working with the team as they minister together to the church congregation and reach out to the local community.
Roy was the A/G NZ Regional Overseer for the Wellington Region from 2003 till 2013 with a one-year gap in 2006. He has been a member of the A/G NZ Executive since October 2013 with the responsibility of running the Probationary Pastors’ Symposiums.
He has been married to Maxine for thirty-five years and they have three adult daughters and a twelve year old grandson.
Roy’s passion is to mobilise, equip and release people to fulfil their potential and destiny in God and, to this end, is willing to serve in the movement in any capacity that enables him to do so.
