Our Leadership

Dr. Bob and Margaret Rodgers, leaders of Evangel World Prayer Center for over three decades, have left a mark on their community and beyond. Dr. Rodgers has an unwavering passion for prayer and fasting which is a cornerstone of the church’s ministry, while Pastor Margaret’s commitment to empowering women has touched the lives of many.

Together, they co-founded Word Broadcasting Media, a national ministry that broadcasts its message across 54 TV stations and 7 radio stations, with a unique presence on the only broadcast Christian TV station in the Holy Land in Israel. Under their visionary leadership, Evangel World Prayer Center has flourished, with more than 20 extension churches in Louisville and the surrounding areas. These extensions not only strengthen the local community but also support inner-city outreach initiatives.

When they began their ministry, with a 40-day fast, Pastor Bob felt a calling from God to “reach the poor of your city.” They were obedient to that assignment and together Dr. Bob and Margaret Rodgers established The Lord’s Kitchen (TLK). TLK is a beacon of hope for the inner city, providing meals for over 60,000 people each month, offering housing for veterans, and aiding individuals on their journey to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Their ministry has transcended borders, with Dr. Rodgers sharing his message in as many as 47 nations.

Dr. Rodgers is a distinguished alumnus of Asbury Theological Seminary and holds an earned doctorate from Oral Roberts University. He is also a prolific author, with more than 60 books to his name, including the best-seller The 21 Day Fast. Together with his wife, Margaret, they are blessed with three children and six grandchildren, a testament to their dedication to both family and faith.

Our Values

Grow in your personal relationship with Christ in a community of believers.

Prayer & Fasting

God’s best for you comes when you seek him with all your heart.
As a church, we firmly believe in the power of prayer and fasting to help us draw near to God to discover His will for us and receive His blessings of healing and prosperity, so we can in turn bless others.

Loving People

People of every race, nation and culture come together to worship our Savior.
We are intentional about building a church that welcomes other nations, bridges racial divides, and treats every person with dignity no matter what.

Generosity & Service

Loving our neighbors requires an outpouring of generosity and service.
We believe the Church is most effective when we help the helpless, forgive the condemned, and love the unlovable, both in our own communities and throughout the world.
