Roy Yanke

Executive Director

God’s servants need hope! Roy’s personal experience has shaped him in unique ways to come alongside the many pastors and their families who are “exited,” have fallen or are just plain burned out in ministry. He pastored for 17 years in an evangelical denomination. As a result of a major “crash and burn,” Roy experienced both the discipline and the grace of God through years of slow but steady growth, restoration and renewed hope. Prior to joining PIR Ministries in 2012, Roy spent 16 years working in a variety of manufacturing environments, including most recently as Quality Manager for a growing company.

While serving as a Regional Director for PIR Ministries, Roy interacted daily with pastors who are in need of a fresh dose of the message of restoration and renewal in Christ. Following the outstanding leadership provided by Ed Lochmoeller, Roy was appointed the Executive Director of PIR Ministries in 2016.

Roy and his wife, Deb, have been married for over 40 years and have one married daughter. Roy is an ordained ruling elder and regular teacher at Grace Chapel EPC in Michigan.

Because there is joy to be found in life… Roy plays bass in the worship band, enjoys jazz music and hockey, and his dog, Keillor.
