Darell Rodgers

Mr. Rodgers is the proud father of two sons. He believes it is not our choice to be our children’s father and primary faith trainer, it is our duty. Our children are at a much greater risk of becoming unfortunate statistics without biblical guidance and a father-figure who honors their commitments to them.

 

Raised absent of a father-figure and deceived on multiple occasions of his biological father’s true identity, Mr. Rodgers not only cumulated the passion to be the father he never experienced as a child but the determination to redeem the culture of fathers our children desperately deserve.   

 

Mr. Rodgers has experienced life in feast and famine, both pre and post salvation. But  through his Faith, which has given him vision and provided him clear discernment of his calling (Proverbs 3:5-6),  Mr. Rodgers has returned to the environments of his past to share these testimonies for God’s Glory so that man can witness the power of God's reward when we remain steadfast in Him. 

 

Mr. Rodgers has 20 years of successful experience in the Information Technology industry where he is an Executive Consultant for Rodgers Technologies. He is a veteran, inventor, and survivor. He is a member of Bay Area First Baptist Church, Director of AWANAs, youth sports coach of NFL Flag Football, member of the Positive Coaching Alliance, inductee of Beta Gamma Sigma International Honor Society, member and moderator of Men’s Fraternity – Quest for Authentic Manhood, and currently pursuing his Master of Arts in Christian Ministry at Liberty University.  Mr. Rodgers is currently writing his first book, “A Step to Remember – A Fatherless Father’s Story.”
