Our Staff

Roy Layman

I first came to Grace Bible Fellowship in 2008 to serve as the youth pastor. Since 2010 I've had the great privilege of serving here as pastor.

My wife Casey and I have been married for 23 years and have 5 kids ranging in age from 22 to 2 years old. Casey is my best friend and the most servant-hearted person I know. She works as a nurse and is a great mom to our kids. She and I serve as foster parents. We share a heart for kids, missions and joy in Christ.

I made a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ as a child, but it wasn't until the spring of 2000 when I was 23 years old that the Lord got my attention in a big way. He opened my eyes to the depth of my sin, his amazing grace found in Christ alone, the value of the Bible, and the Glory of God. God has redeemed me and continues to redeem me, I'd love to share that story with you sometime!

My education includes Fire Academy and EMT school (way back in the day). Plus, I took just about every class Grayson County College has to offer. Since beginning in ministry, I've attended Luther Rice Bible College and Criswell Bible College, but the bulk of my ministry training came through programs offered by Denton Bible Church. I have a diploma from The Bible Training Centre For Pastors and have completed Tommy Nelson’s (Pastor at DBC) ‘Young Guns’ program as well. 

In my spare time I enjoy watching sports, especially high school football #TPW and the Dallas Mavs. I love all kinds of music, Blue Bell ice cream, fishing, hiking, and pretty much anything outdoors. 

I love sharing life and faith with the people of Grace Bible! Having lived here in Grayson County my entire life, I have a huge heart for the people of this area, MY PEOPLE. My goal is to TEACH the Word, LOVE people and PRAY for the Spirit to move here at Grace Bible as long as the Lord sees fit. My philosophy of ministry is to be BIBLICAL, RELATIONAL, and FUN. 

Price Ferrell

I started on staff at Grace Bible Fellowship part-time in January 2014 and then became full-time in May 2017. I currently serve as the Associate Pastor and Student Pastor.

I met my wife, Reagan, on a mission trip to India with Grace Bible in the summer of 2016 and got married in October 2017. We had our son, Eli, in June 2020. I have an Associate’s of Science degree from Grayson Community College and a Bachelor’s of Science in Health and Physical Eduction from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. By His grace, the Lord saved me while a attending a revival service when I was 8 years old, and He’s continued to grow my faith ever since. I enjoy time with family and friends, golf, music, and reading.

Q Layman

I joined the Grace Bible staff in December of 2020. I currently serve as the Worship Pastor and Co-Student Pastor with Price Ferrell. 

I met my wife, Caroline, at college and got married in March of 2021. I studied at University of Arkansas where I got my degree in Communication. I put my faith in Christ when I was seven years old, on a mission trip in New Mexico. I have been following Him ever since. In my spare time in enjoy music, fishing, and watching the NBA.

Alicia Gage

Alicia grew up in Decatur, Texas where she graduated High School in 2000. She

graduated from Hardin Simmons University in 2004 with a degree in Behavioral

Science. Alicia and her husband, John, have 4 boys, Brooks (15), Mitchell (14), Knox

(11), and Titus (7). Some of her passions in ministry are for each child to know that God

is real and seek a personal relationship with Him; for each child to know the Truths of

God through scripture, music, and catechisms; to equip, encourage, and appreciate the

volunteers; and to equip parents to be the primary spiritual leader of their child.

Alicia's interests and hobbies include spending time with her family, fishing with her

boys, watching sports events, singing, physical fitness, and diving into a good book or

movie with a cup of strong, pour-over coffee.
