Since 2001, Roger has been the President of the Institute for Biblical Preaching (IBP), Cambridge, ON, whose mission is to “strengthen the church in biblical preaching and leadership.”
From 2001 until 2005, Roger was the Director of The Stephen Olford Centre for Preaching and Leadership at Heritage Theological Seminary in Cambridge, ON.
Subsequently, Roger served as the Program Director of the Olford Institutes at the Stephen Olford Center at Union University in Memphis, TN. This ministry focused on training, encouraging and mentoring pastors and lay church leaders in biblical preaching, church leadership, and spiritual growth.
Overseas, Roger conducts pastors’ conferences on biblical preaching, church leadership, pastoral ministry issues, and theology. These conferences are designed to provide pastors, who have little or no formal theological training, with the pastoral skills and encouragement to help them faithfully shepherd God's people.
Following almost twenty years of bi-vocational ministry in a Brethren assembly, Roger served as Senior Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Woodbridge, Ontario, before taking up his current ministry with IBP. Roger also currently serves as a part-time Associate Pastor at Hespeler Baptist Church in Cambridge, Ontario.
Roger is ordained with the Fellowship of Evangelical Churches of Canada. He has earned the Master of Theological Studies degree and the Doctor of Ministry degree in Expository Preaching. He lives in Cambridge with his wife, Janet, and has two adult children and 3 grandchildren.
