A native of West Virginia who was raised in Pittsburgh, Pa., Dr. Roy Millhouse worked in the construction industry for a number of years before pursuing an academic career. In addition, Roy has served in pastoral ministry in Arkansas and Texas. He served as interim pastor for three years at Little River Baptist Church, one of Texas’ historic churches, founded in 1849. Roy has taught at Baylor University and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. His research interests include Jewish and Christian apocalyptic literature, Second Temple Judaism, the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament and ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman influence on biblical literature. Roy’s dissertation is in the Sterling spirit: “Re-Imaging the Warrior: Jesus Christ as the Divine Warrior in the Book of Revelation.”
Roy loves sports of any kind, especially hockey, football, baseball and soccer. He is an avid hiker and cyclist, and a very amateur geologist. Roy and his wife Michelle (Mikki) recently celebrated their 20th anniversary. Mikki teaches in an innovative science program at the elementary school level. The Millhouses have three children: Ben, Jillian and Matt.
