Formerly an aimless and depressed ex-college house painter, he became a serial entrepreneur who found true happiness, success, and fulfillment through a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ (in whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind), which began when he was born again in October 1978. He became a Born Again Christian after a two-year search for the answer to the question: “What happens to you after you die?”
You can read about his personal search for the truth in his book How I Lost My Fear of Death and How You Can Too.
Raised as a Roman Catholic, McElroy attended a Catholic grammar school and a Jesuit high school. Once a believer in the Big Bang theory and Evolution, he now passionately extols the veracity of “The Book.” He has read through the Bible over 20 times (including the 1611 First Edition of the King James Bible five times). He has taught it to all age groups, from preschoolers to adults. He has served as a youth leader for over 20 years and as a deacon at a Baptist church for over 12 years.
He has authored a book about the Bible titled Which Bible Would Jesus Use? The Bible Version Controversy Explained and Resolved.
Although he attends a Baptist church, he describes his “religion” as a “Born again Bible believer.”
He has been the president of McElroy Electronics Corporation for over 40 years. He is president of McElroy Publishing and McElroy Rare Bible Page Collections. He was Chief Manager of Minneapolis Cellular Telephone Company LLC and President of Dutchess County Cellular Telephone Corporation.
