Rodger Woodworth

The Rev. Dr. Rodger Woodworth has been married to Wende, his college sweetheart, for 42 years. He is a father of two, a grandfather of seven and the founding pastor to hundreds at an inter-racial church called New Hope, an Evangelical Presbyterian Church in the North Side of Pittsburgh. Rodger is also President of New Hope’s community development corporation and the Director of Cross-Cultural Ministries for the CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach), a college ministry on 90 campuses from Columbus Ohio to Washington DC.

Rodger writes a blog called cross-cultural convergence, is an adjunct seminary professor at RPTS with a Doctorate of Ministry in Complex Urban Settings and serves on the Board of Directors for the Center for Urban Ministerial Education. Rodger’s greatest passion, however, is for the gospel of grace that saves broken people like him and broken people different than him and makes us all equal at the foot of the cross.
