Leadership Team

Roy and SarahDr. Roy Comstock is CMN’s Chairman/CEO. He has served as President/CEO for the first 15 years of the ministry’s existence. Sarah, Roy’s wife and serves on the Board of Directors and as the Office Manager of the California office. Roy and Sarah recently moved back to Valencia, California from Queen Creek, Arizona, where they lived for 9 years.

Roy is a man who has had many unique life experiences. From his early childhood days when he was forced to adapt to living in fourteen different foster homes, to the rise and fall of his own multi-million dollar financial empire, which then taught him to adapt to a life of hard cold prison confinement and a lesson in what can happen to any businessman who dares to take his eyes off Jesus.

Dr. Paul Cedar, the Chairman of Mission America Coalition and long-time friend, wrote about Roy, “Major failure came into his marriage, his business and his personal life. The good news is instead of departing from the faith, Roy repented and turned to Christ in a deeper way than ever before in his life. He cried out to the Lord concerning his own life, and the Lord responded not only to his needs, but also taught him insights that can be of great help to anyone who desires to follow Jesus Christ.” It was during his time in prison that the Lord revealed many of the principles that Roy calls the “Twelve Characteristics of a Godly Life.”   The material Roy wrote while in prison has become a three book series called Mentoring His Way-Disciple Twelve. They are based on the Twelve Characteristics of a Godly Life and have often been referred to as Roy’s prison epistles. Mentoring His Way has become the foundation for CMN’s mentoring process.
