Meet the Pastors
Greetings from Pastors Tommy and Mendy Royster in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Thank you for visiting our web site. Mendy and I have lived in the Richmond/Henrico area all our lives and love the people here. After serving our Lord at other local churches, we were called to attend Faith Landmark Bible Institute to prepare us for full time ministry, where we graduated in 2006 and became ordained in 2012 through the ministry of Mountain of Blessings Christian Center by Dr. Dimitri Bradly. It has been an honor and privilege to serve as Pastors at Elko Union Church since 2012. Our heart is to minister to people of all backgrounds in the church and in the world. To lead people into a loving and joyous relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ through the teaching of the doctrine of the Apostles as they received from our Lord Jesus Christ; maturing together in one body to the same measure of Love as our Savior who gave His life so that we may live. Our commitment to our community is to be a safe place where all people can feel at home where they are loved unconditionally as we help them understand how much their Creator, God Almighty, loves them and at the same time understanding He is The Holy God who hates sin and the deadly effect it has on His children. That it is God's desire that no person spend eternity separated from Him but that all come to the saving knowledge of His Son Jesus Christ, who paid the ultimate price of death upon the Cross for the sins of the world and died, but was raised to life again on the third day and now lives forever making intercession to The Father for us all when we decide to give up trying to live our live our way, dying to all self righteousness and learning to trust-in, rely-upon and lovingly and willingly obeying His Word. Our testimonies are like many, we lived without knowing and loving the Lord for many years, but at an appointed time, He called us to serve Him and our lives have never been the same. We would love to share with you, the transforming power of Christ's Love so you also might live eternally in heaven with your Creator at the appointed time and live now on earth with joy unspeakable and with His Peace, which is beyond all human understanding.
In His Love
Pastors Tommy and Mendy
