David T. Roller served for 17 years as a Free Methodist missionary in Mexico, then for 10 years as Latin America Area Director for Free Methodist World Missions and in July of 2007 was elected a bishop of the Free Methodist Church of North America.
His experience in seeing the world through “missionary eyes” has convinced him that all Christians should adopt the posture and mind set of missionaries — understanding the culture where they minister, relinquishing their own preferences and privileges in their desire to see people’s key allegiance transferred from “whatever” to Jesus.
Bishop Roller now oversees the ministry of eleven annual conferences in the eastern area of the United States, as well as the United Kingdom, and the five annual conferences of Latin America.
David and the love of his life, Yvonne, both graduated from Spring Arbor College in Michigan and David is also a graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky. They are parents of Thaddeus and Evangeline.
Bishop David and Yvonne, reside in Baltimore, Maryland.
