    Hey Gang,

    I don't know if this belongs here or not.

    I can make a stretch because Dr. Roger's and Bellview BC were consistent supporters of Mid America Baptist Theological Seminary. They have even given MABTS 30 something acres on I-40 to relocate. I had my first seminary experience at MABTS; therefore, I have a vested interest in Dr. Rogers, Bellview BC, and the seminary.

    I would like to hear some GOOD reflections on him and his ministry. How you see him? How he has impacted people you know or personally impacted your life? etc., et al? How he has helped to retake the SBC? cause of Christ? Christ's Church?

    Let me hear from you.

    sdg!

    Had missionaries come from out of town and bellview helped facilitate housing. also gave support to local spanish churches around mphs. the church is in the county but they gave great support to smaller churches reaching the community in the inner city.

    Dr Rodgers will be teaching, part time, at MABTS. He is a great man of God and I am sure the church will miss him greatly.

    He's my pastor. We will be staying in one of Bellevue's missionary homes when we go back to America for stateside assignment in July. I felt the call to ministry while hearing him preach. God has used him in great ways. Bellevue now has 29,000 members.

    Bro. Smith,

    I am an MABTS alum and still live in Memphis. As far as I can tell all of the admin stuff was done for Adrian to begin teaching. But, unfortunately, he never had the opportunity.

    sdg!
