More About Roger

Running pumps Roger up. Logging about 20 miles each week keeps Roger’s head clear so he can enjoy the finer things in life, like adventurous trips with his wife Cheryl or being PoppaRog to his granddaughter Sloane. He’s raised three sons who share his enjoyment of baseball. Since becoming Lead Pastor at Oakwood in 2012, Roger has taken in countless games at Miller Park. Roger's somewhat-secret talent is woodworking. He gifts the staff with one of his (or someone else's) unique pieces each year and has shared his talent with others in his family and community.
