Pastor Troy S. Levy

Troy Solomon Levy was born in Brooklyn, NY and was raised mainly on the East Coast. He spent his formative years being educated in Seventh-day Adventist institutions in the Allegheny East Conference.

Upon graduation from the 8th grade, Troy decided to attend Pine Forge Academy for four years, graduating in 2004. This is where he met his wife-to-be, Rachelle, forming a strong friendship with her. Troy and Rachelle were married on August 9, 2009 and have three vibrant and energetic sons together (Benjamin, Kenneth, & Isaac). He went on to attend Oakwood University earning a BA in Theology, graduating in 2008.

Troy, more recently, completed his studies at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University in December 2010. He is also continuing his studies by currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree in Urban Ministry with an emphasis on financial literacy at Andrews University.

Pastor Troy is the proud Lead Pastor of the New Life SDA Church in Gaithersburg, MD. New Life is the church of his youth and he’s thrilled to return and contribute to those that poured into him during his formative years.

Pastor Troy Levy’s main burden in ministry is to help people, especial-ly young people, develop a true love for the Lord. He also desires to lead his parishioners in faithfully sharing the gospel with those who do not know Jesus. His favorite Bible text is Proverbs 9:10, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
