Rodney enjoys mountain biking.
He doesn’t just “enjoy” mountain biking, his family vacations revolve around it! He has competed in multiple cross country, intense mountain biking events 60+ miles long. He also enjoys hiking, orienteering, and pretty much any competitive sport. It’s a good thing he burns all those calories because his wife is a more than fabulous cook! They attend Sylvania Church in Tyler where Rodney serves as an elder. He is also President of Effects of Grace Ministries, Inc. Effects of Grace is a small non-profit that helps encourage and train pastors around the world.
One of Rodney’s favorite verses, “And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,” 2 Corinthians 4:3
Rodney loves working at Encouragement Media Group because of the close family atmosphere, as well as the amazing opportunity to reach so many with the message that they can be made right with the Creator of the universe through repentance and faith in Jesus as God and Savior!
