ATLANTA — Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Sen. Jack Hill (R-Reidsville) welcomed Pastor Bob Rogers, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Rincon to serve as the Chaplain of the Day on Wednesday in the state Senate.
“It was an honor to welcome Pastor Rogers to the Senate today,” Cagle said. “The tradition of the Senate to begin each day with a devotional and prayer allows us to set our mind and heart in the right direction as we make important policy decisions. As we face daunting challenges as well this session, I’m confident that the Senate will answer the call to serve. Today, Pastor Rogers’ message encouraged Senators and inspired each of us to lead our state in the right direction.”
Said Hill: “Rev. Rogers is well known and beloved in his community for his sense of humor and down-to-earth leadership. His church has undergone extensive expansion and construction during his pastoral and we were pleased to welcome him to the Capitol today.”
Rogers has served at the First Baptist Church of Rincon since 1999. Since then, the church has grown from 1,286 to 1,881 members. Rogers is currently a member of the Executive Committee of the Georgia Baptist Convention, and serves as a moderator of the Savannah Baptist Association.
Rogers graduated from Mississippi College and earned the Master of Divinity and Doctor of Theology degrees from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
