R. Rodgers was born and raised in Memphis, TN. He is the son of
Bishop and Mrs. Charles Rodgers and the grandson of three pastors.
He began his life of ministry as a musician. He started playing
the drums for his father’s church at the age of 5. He moved
from the drums, to the piano, and finally to the organ. He served
as Minister of Music at his father’s church for 15 years.
Slowly, God changed his emphasis from music to the preaching ministry.
He served as an Associate Pastor for Bishop Rodgers for 8 years.
During this time, he began to evangelize as God began to develop
his deliverance ministry. In 1994, the Spirit of God spoke to him
to begin a work in Jonesboro, AR. He started with a daily broadcast
in May of the same year. In September, he and his wife, Susan, founded
Fullness of Joy Ministries.
January 2008, the call for ministry became greater for Pastor Adrian
Rodgers. His father, Bishop Rodgers, retired from the full-time
pastorate and Pastor Rodgers became the pastor of New Dimensions
Ministries in Memphis, TN. He also continues to stand beside
his father by serving as Vice Chairman of IMPACT Fellowship International.
Adrian is a graduate of International College of Bible Theology.
He is a popular conference speaker and foreign evangelist. He is
a part of several mission trips annually to Manila, Phillipines

in ministry. Susan and Adrian have one son, Adrian Charles and one

the Truth of God’s Anointed Word will destroy yokes and set
the captive free. She has a special desire to help hurting women
find their place of empowerment through the power of the Word and
an intimate relationship with their Savior.
