Roswell was born and raised in South Texas and first got involved with FCA while playing football at Texas Tech University. Although raised in the church by his parents, there was no heart change until “FCA College Advance” in 1998 where Roswell heard the Gospel and was crushed under the weight of its beauty. In 1999, he and seven other college students founded “Men of God Christian Fraternity”, now existing at six Division 1 campuses across the country. The next year, he continued to serve in sports ministry through FCA to college and high school campuses in Lubbock, TX. He has also worked as a strength and conditioning coach, training and mentoring professional, college, and amateur athletes.

Roswell met his wife, Shelley, at Texas Tech where she participated in Cru-Athletes in Action. She did sports ministry with AIA in the summer of 2002 in the inner city of Los Angeles. At that time, they had no clue that they would come full circle together in sports ministry. They have been married 13 years and have a 3-year-old son, Jaren, and a 5-month-old daughter, Geneva. They love Tex-Mex (also any other kind of food), spending time outdoors, and sports entertainment. For the past several years, they have dedicated their lives to serving the body of Christ through urban ministry in Houston.

Most recently, Roswell served the greater Houston area as a Youth Pastor and urban Church Planter. After being a keynote speaker at FCA Fields of Faith events for the past 10 years, the transition to a full-time position with FCA has been seamless and timely. Roswell considers this opportunity as a fulfillment of everything God has done and prepared him for in ministry. He believes God not only called him to this role and this city, but he believes it is designed for him to steward the ministry in this season.
