Jesse Leon Rodgers and his wife Tammy have served as pastors, evangelists, resident missionaries in Singapore Southeast Asia as well as Bible college instructors. Their greatest joy is their family of seven sons and one daughter. His most recent project has been the Training for Reigning discipleship series, a catalytic series of books which thrusts believers into their “Reigning Role” in life. Rodgers is the chairman of the Oklahoma Watchmen on the Wall Network, the pastors network of the Family Research Council, and founding Elder of The City Elders Movement, the restoration of the biblical model of city and state governance (“elders in the gates of the city”). Rodgers’ unique role with the Family Research Council and being at the helm of City Elders has positioned him to influence government officials from local municipalities all the way to the White House.
