When asked about his ministry Roger said “I can remember the first time singing with my dad playing the guitar and standing beside my mom when I was 4 yrs old. I have always loved all types of music. My vision is to lead as many people to Christ through preaching, song, testimony, comedy, drama and technology as possible. It has been said I am following in my dad’s footsteps and preaching more between songs than behind the pulpit. I will take that. I not only wish to be a reflection of my earthly father that taught me so much in my life but also I want people to see my Heavenly Father in me. I have been called a Christian Entertainer. I believe we can minister in an entertaining way. I also believe in my 30+ years of ministry I have found that we can use all different types of music to let people know the love of Jesus Christ. Currently I am Artist in Residence at Leestown Gospel Church in Frankfort, KY & Redemption Road in Georgetown, KY where I lead worship when not spreading the Gospel elsewhere.” us-3“Dianna is my wonderful wife and has a heart to help the hurting.
