Founded by Mr. Jerry Borton, Power Ministries has served people with disabilities, and their families, for more than thirty years. Many of those served in the “Handi-Camp” program have continued to participate in that program for nearly all of those 30 years.
After more than forty years in the area of disabilities services, Roy has served people with disabilities as a classroom teacher (Special Education in Jeffersonville County KY), a Program Director (Silvercrest Children’s Development Center, New Albany), and for the more recent 20 years as the Executive Director of Power Ministries. Roy is a graduate of Milligan College (B.A., Psychology and Sociology) and the University of Louisville, Kentucky (M. Ed., Special Education).
During his years of service to people with disabilities, he has filled the role of classroom educator and administrator. He has continued in post-graduate education in Disabilities Technology at Indiana University. Under Roy’s direction, the Ministry has more than doubled in size and outreach, continuing the focus on spiritual fundamentals.
Nancy graduated from Milligan College with a degree in Elementary Education. She was a classroom teacher in the Jefferson County School system (Louisville, KY). Nancy was a homeschool educator for their two children, Ann (Tolbert) and Neil. Since “retiring” from homeschooling, Nancy served in volunteer support for Power Ministries, and currently serves in the part-time position of Ministry Coordinator.
