Our Leadership Team
Christian Mentors Network has a strong leadership team working together to bring both ministry and operations skill sets into effective
service for fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go and make disciples….”
DR. ROY & SARAH COMSTOCK
Dr. Roy Comstock is CMN’s Chairman/CEO. He has served as CEO/Founder since the ministry’s birth in 2000. Sarah, Roy’s wife, 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 principles of 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.

Barry was mentored by Roy Comstock in 2007 and has gone on to personally mentor many men through CMN’s mentoring process. He also has established Mentor Training classes in dozens of churches where thousands of men’s lives have been transformed from ordinary men into victorious warriors for Christ. Barry’s Mighty Men Task Force puts on the Recon Day workshops to pull together leaders eager to learn how to disciple men through small groups and one-on-one mentoring relationships. Similarly, Julie has developed Sisters of Strength with leadership teams that hold workshops and train women in local churches to mentor other women. Barry and Julie live in Queen Creek Arizona.
