Children’s Pastors Kenny and Pat Rogers
We are Kenny and Pat Rogers and are extremely blessed to be a part of Cross Creek Ministries. We love God with all of our heart and enjoy the freedom we experience at Cross Creek Church. It is exciting to watch God move in our services and to see lives changed through His power. We used to sing a song titled “from glory to glory He’s changing me” and I feel like instead of singing about it we are experiencing it on a daily basis.
Kenny and I were married in May of 1974. Kenny graduated from Central Bible College in 1977 and we moved to Arizona to be house parents in an Indian Children’s Home. We were there for three years and then moved to Lebanon, Missouri to be group home parents for the court. We licensed as foster parents in 1982 and have thoroughly enjoyed this ministry. It has been awesome to see God touch the lives of so many of the children that we have been blessed to have in our home. We have also enjoyed working with the parents of a lot of these children. Tracy, Aaron and Sue Ann have become permanent members of our family. Aaron and his family is actively involved in ministry with us at Cross Creek Church.
We have also been blessed with four biological children that love God with all of their heart. Our oldest son and his wife have five children and he is a deacon at First Assembly. Sarah and her husband have two children and live in Willard. Becca and her husband have two children and are actively involved in Cross Creek. Jordan plays the drums and together he and Becca help in youth and with young adult activities. Nathaniel is a full time student at Southwest Baptist University and has been our inspiration. He has been excited about Cross Creek from the very beginning and has encouraged us to “go for it”.
Kenny and I have been actively involved in children’s ministry for 20+ years. We have worked with Royal Rangers, Missionettes, children’s church and Sunday school programs. We have had lots of sleepovers and campouts. We believe in children’s ministry and understand the importance of reaching and teaching them while they are young.
