2017 has been a chaotic year, to say the least. Wars and rumors of war, more than usual sex scandals, natural disasters, and a country seemingly divided on every political issue have all added to the anxiety of daily life. I offer this prayer as we wrap up this year and move into 2018.
Heavenly Father, I ask for your protection from war and pray for wisdom for the world’s leaders. Please shine your light of truth into the sex scandals that we are bombarded by. Help the perpetrators to see the reality of their choices and victims to find safety and healing. Bring peace, provision and safety to those who are suffering because of natural disasters. Please help our leaders to come together and lead our country towards solutions rather than division. Thank you for your many blessings, even when they seem difficult to identify. I repent of the ways that I hurt others, willfully or accidentally. Teach me to love those who seem to be my enemies. Help me to listen to your voice and follow You. Thank you for your provision, for me and those I hold dear. I am sorry for the times I have seen another in need and not responded well. Please change my heart towards those I often have contempt for. Help me to listen to your voice and follow You. Thank you for showing me your love, though I often reject it. Please forgive me for being callous towards you and others. Show me how to be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem. Help me to listen to your voice and follow You. Amen
In the spring of 1995, the conflict Roger felt between his faith and his sexuality, as well as an addiction to pornography, led him to WGA. His personal journey has provided him unique insights into sexuality and the pain of adversity, which he shares through his testimony, facilitation of small groups, writing and public speaking.
Roger began working with WGA in October of 1996 as the Assistant office Manager. Since that time, he has worn many hats and served in several different positions, including Assistant Program Director and Operations Director. In April of 2007, Roger assumed the position of Executive Director.
Roger attended West Texas A&M University, where he studied Music Business. Much of his training has been “on the job,” where he was mentored by the ministry’s Founder, Mary Heathman, and the Program Director, Scott Kingry. He holds a BA from West Texas A&M University.
Roger, his wife Jill, and their daughter Julia and son William, attend Celebration Community Church where Jill serves as Associate Pastor.
