ElRoy completed a 2-year course in Christian Formation and Spiritual Direction from CFDM San Diego in 2005. He is 60-something and has specialized in offering spiritual direction to men since completing his training.
Currently ElRoy serves as part of the lay community at Journey Community Church in La Mesa where he and his wife, Beverly, teach adult classes in Spiritual Formation. Together they have co-led numerous one-day and half-day retreats.
ElRoy continues to cultivate his personal spiritual journey and growth as a spiritual director by participating in a local supervision group and attending structured retreats sponsored by “b” and CFDM. Along with his wife, ElRoy has enjoyed numerous pilgrimages to Europe and the Middle East that have deepened his own connection to God.
ElRoy spent 30 years working as a plumber. His retirement is full of times with family, friends, travel and connecting to God and the people God brings for him to journey along side. He and Beverly have two lovely children, who live locally, and two grandsons who love to wrestle.
