God wants you to know Him--not the person you think He is, but His true, beautiful character. Unfortunately, over time we have blemished the character of God by making Him more and more into our own image. Our mission is to research the Bible to find God's authentic character, and to fall in love with Him even more in the process of discovery.
We seek to be an interactive community that uses the most responsible methods of biblical interpretation, taking into account language, syntax, culture and what the whole of Scripture says on a topic. We choose to have fun in the process and benefit from the wealth of study and thoughts of our community.
Our community meets every Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in Randall Amphitheater on the campus of Loma Linda University. If you are planning a visit, please reserve your seats by clicking HERE and letting us know when you are able to attend. We'd love to have you join us!
Roy Ice has explored the rain forests of Panama, Australia, and Costa Rica, and has plunged into the freezing waters of Finland in December. He has been awarded two awards from the Gospel Music Association as a member of the Christian band, Big Face Grace, has taught an English class to a Ukrainian Olympic Gold Medalist, and grade 12 Bible class to an American Double-Gold and Silver Medalist. He was mistaken for a major Hollywood producer for an entire day at Sony Picture Studios, and has climbed to the top of the Continental Divide.
Ice is the author of the book, 12 Things to Try While You're Still Mortal, which climbed to the #1 Bestseller spot on Amazon Kindle Religious Books in July of 2015. In August of 2010, he was nominated for the highest award granted by the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators Guild for his novel, Treasure of Heaven.
Ice’s life has been thoroughly upgraded in every way by Christ’s relentless grace, and through the testimony of God’s Word he has helped people to have that same encounter with the Savior on every continent, with the exception of two; Africa & Antarctica. He still has not given up hope of taking the Good News to the Emperor Penguins of Antarctica, however.
Since 1993, Ice has been a pastor, college chaplain and religion professor in Texas and California, and now serves as the Pastor for Resource Development at the Loma Linda University Church.
