Roei Stanley was born in Canada. His father is Canadian and his mother is Israeli. They moved to Israel when Roei was three years old. Growing up, he went to church but never understood what it meant to have a relationship with God. After his military service, he had a lot of doubts about God and came close to giving up his faith. At the age of 21, he attended a Messianic conference. During the worship time, God opened his eyes and his heart. Roie has been growing in his relationship with Him ever since and is learning what it means to be a son and a disciple. He and his wife Katie served with YWAM for a number of years. He’s been helping to run our soldiers’ meetings as well as helping us host local community events. It’s been great having him help Jews for Jesus initiate community dinners and other projects that bring people together to better our neighborhood.
