Musical talent runs throughout the Rodgers family, as does a commitment for Christ, but it took me a few years and some maturity to understand my own personal call. I started playing music – drums, piano, guitar -- with my brother Jonny when i was 14 years old. As young kids, we started a band named Mighty Purple, and in the early 1990s gained a following on the east coast. In 2000, the Lord broke through and He has consumed every part of me ever since.
I was introduced to St. Paul Westport through friends of mine at Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in New Haven, CT. The church's heart for worship spurred me to join the band, as first a drummer, and just over eight years ago, as its Worship Leader. Every Sunday is an amazing day of music and praise, and a love to gather other Christian music talent to worship with us.
As a 30-something, I know that there are many more things that God will call me to. Right now, it is loving my wife and two, small children, as well as nuturing a special, all ages music venue in New Haven. It's a great place to be.
