'The Bridge' Pastor

Roy Angel

From overdose to overcome, Pastor Roy has dedicated his life to the journey of recovery. Being in long-
term recovery himself, he knows the importance of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in sustaining
recovery. Pastor Roy’s journey with The Bridge began in 2010, when he entered the church as a broken,
hopeless man. Since then, Christ has stepped into his life and through the power of His love, Pastor Roy
has been able to sustain recovery. He became ordained as a pastor, and he is also the Executive Director
of Walking with Him 6, a faith-based sober living house dedicated to sharing the love of Christ and His
importance in successful recovery. Pastor Roy has also worked as a counselor at Harbor Hall for five
years. Pastor Roy uses his life experience as well as his professional experience to teach recovery
principles coupled with the truth of the Gospel in order to expand the Kingdom of God. He invites you to
come to The Bridge and join us in this recovery journey together as we explore redemption, recovery
and restoration.
