Born into a family of migrant workers in Nampa, Idaho, Pastor Roy experienced many hardships and struggles growing up. His battle with addiction and unhealthy family dynamics eventually led him to jail and prison where he found the Lord and has continued to be restored, discipled and mentored to be the man that God has called him to be. His faith journey helped him restore his family; led him to serve the Lord and now continues to serve others in the local church, NWYM and mentoring others through personal development. He was Honored to be recorded by NWYM as a pastor in 2019. He has served in many ministry roles in the Friends church since 2001.

Married for 20 years to Pastor Joy Lujan, Whitney Friends Church in Boise, Idaho, he is honored to serve as the Pastor’s Husband. Together they have 6 wonderful children, 3 are married, and they have 3 grandchildren.
