Roy Allen Davison was baptized into the body of Christ at Alexandria, Virginia, on March 4, 1951. At an early age he dedicated his life to proclaiming the good news about Christ. He preached his first full-length sermon when he was fourteen. In 1961 Roy earned a BA degree with a major in communication and minors in Bible and Greek from Abilene Christian College in Texas. While in Abilene he became a good friend of Cor van Ewijk, a Dutchman. At Cor’s invitation, Roy made plans to go to Holland, and began taking Dutch lessons from Cor.
During the first half of 1963, Roy held two gospel meetings and traveled extensively in Canada and the U.S. informing churches about his proposed work in Europe. He went to Holland in September 1963, where he studied at the university and worked with Dan Boyd in Utrecht for two years. After gaining a working knowledge of Dutch, he was invited to assist the church in Ostend, Belgium in the fall of 1965. At that time he was the only full-time preacher for churches of Christ among the five million Flemish (Dutch) speaking people of Belgium and the church in Ostend was the only Flemish congregation. Roy serves as an evangelist in Belgium. He also works as a free-lance Dutch-English translator.
