John Mark Rodgers of San Angelo, TX began dancing in the golden streets with Christ July 7, 2020. John was born November 1, 1952 in Mangum, Oklahoma to Joel and Beulah Rodgers.

John grew up admiring his father’s ministry and passionately followed in his footsteps, becoming an ordained minister in 1985. He spent more than 18 years as a pastor in Carter, OK and Ingram/Kerrville, TX.

To share a memory would be impossible, there are to many to list. Brother John and his sweet family will forever have a big place in my heart. Thank you for all the wonderful and life long advice, encouragement and love. The frog song will never be the same. Sending prayers, lots of love and tons of hugs to each of you.

This is the only picture I have of John and I. It was Summer camp at Alto Frio, July 16, 1993. He and I were youth ministers at two different churches and we combined our peeps to form one group. Of course we already knew each other since my mom had been the secretary at Southern Oaks. John Rodgers had a big heart for kids, and he was serious about the word of God. He was humble and authentic. Students opened up and talked about painful stuff. I remember that camp experience as my favorite.❤
