Pastors Roy and Ovril Thompson
Pastor Roy M. Thompson is the Senior Pastor of Forward In Faith Ministries International, Phoenix, Arizona (FIFaz). A skillful and powerful teacher of the word of God, Pastor Roy has ministered to both young and old alike, teaching them how to live an overcoming and victorious life.
He grew up in the church and knew that he was called to minister to God’s people from the early age of seven but neglected to heed the call on his life, deciding instead to pursue a career in business.
A degree in Finance and Business led him to spend over thirty four years in the business world as a Senior Business Executive, rising to the title of Chief Financial Officer. During this time God continued to remind him of the call that was on his life so he was led to study under a large prominent ministry for twenty five years.
Pastor Roy served as an Elder in the Atlanta Assembly of Forward In Faith Ministries where his devotion and dedication to love and empower God’s people was recognized.
As the call to ministry got stronger in his life God ministered to him and he immediately walked away from his lucrative career to attend Africa Multination For Christ College (AMFCC), located in Zimbabwe, Africa.
After graduating and ordination, Pastor Roy was posted to FIFaz, where he is experiencing phenomenal church growth.
He is happily married to Pastor Ovril Thompson for over 17 years and this union has produced two sons; Roy II and Justin.
Pastor Ovril Thompson, or Pastor OV, as she is so fondly referred to by most people, is the Co-Pastor of Forward In Faith Ministries International Phoenix, Arizona (FIFaz).
As a Preacher’s Kid (PK), she was brought up in the church and knew from an early age that there was a tremendous call on her life. Her mother also knew that someday her daughter would become a powerful Evangelist; following in her footsteps. So her mother did all that she could to nurture the call of God in her daughter’s life.
Wanting to make her own way in this world, she decided to follow a career in the fashion industry where she excelled, getting numerous awards and accolades of excellence.
As the call of God grew louder in her life she decided to heed the call and gave up her very lucrative business to attend Africa Multination For Christ College (AMFCC), located in Zimbabwe, Africa, from which she graduated and was ordained.
She is mightily used of God in the office of an Evangelist. An avid prayer warrior, she has been instrumental in changing the outlook of many people through prayer.
She is happily married to Pastor Roy Thompson for over 17 years and is the mother of two sons, Justin and Roy II.
