Jonathan was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana. He moved to the Austin area in 1996 at the age of 21. Jonathan came to Christ in 2010 after a member of HCBC Austin took the initiative to take Jonathan through discipleship and explain salvation through Christ by the grace of God. Jonathan and Ashley also met in 2010 and were married in 2011. The Royers attended Hutto Bible Church while living in Taylor, but they moved to HCBCPF in 2014 after moving to Pflugerville. They fostered 3 children in 2016 and just had their first biological child, Benjamin Michael, September 2017. Praise God for this blessing! The Royers have been Small Group Shepherds, involved in Global Outreach missions, and in Adoption/Foster ministries.
