Above: KPBS celebrates cultural diversity in partnership with Union Bank by honoring Roy Dixon during Black History Month 2012.

Bishop Roy Dixon is the church pastor at Faith Chapel, which he started in 1985 with only six members. Bishop Dixon understands that a congregation of faith must participate powerfully in community life, and he is committed to helping the poor. Under Bishop Dixon’s leadership and community activism, Faith Chapel has grown to influence not only San Diego, but all of California.

He and the more than 1,000 members also partner with the San Diego Organizing Project (SDOP), a group aiming to grow the church membership and address social injustices in the community. Bishop Dixon has been recognized by the NAACP and former Governors Deukmejian and Wilson with Small Business Awards.
