Rev. Dr. Roger Roller to lead revival at Hermitage
Revival services will be held at Hermitage Baptist Church on Route 17 at Church View beginning Sunday, April 2, at 11 a.m. Services will continue Monday through Wednesday at 7 p.m. each evening. A fellowship luncheon will take place after the Sunday morning service.
The guest evangelist will be Rev. Dr. Roger Roller of Forest. In a revival service in 1978, Rev. Roller recommitted his life to Christ and began to sense a call into full-time Christian work. He attended Bluefield College and earned a degree in business administration. He then entered Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where he received a master of divinity degree in 1983.
Rev. Roller pastored Calvary Baptist Church in Floyd from 1984-86. From 1986-93, he was the pastor of Rustburg Baptist Church in Rustburg.
Rev. Roller and his wife Ester formed the Roger Roller Evangelistic Association in 1993. Now in his 25th year as a full-time evangelist, Rev. Roller leads 25 to 30 revivals each year. He has preached overseas on mission trips in Hungary, Cuba, Panama, San Blas Islands, India, Brazil, Honduras and South Africa. Rev. Roller recently returned from a mission trip to Ghana where over 4,200 people were saved in six revival meetings.
The Rollers’ evangelistic association has provided the funds to build churches overseas and partnered with another ministry to build a training center in Uganda. They also support, with grants, college and seminary students who are going into full-time Christian service. They have an associate evangelist in Honduras who is fully supported financially by their ministry.
Special music is planned for each service. Nursery is available during revival services for ages 5 and under.
“Bible Science for Kids Revival” for kids in grades K-5 will be held in the education wing during the revival services. “Invite your friends to come discover Bible-based experiments that demonstrate God’s hand in science!” said a church spokesperson.
Pastor Rev. Edward Harrow Sr. and the congregation of Hermitage Baptist Church invite the community to attend. If transportation is needed, call the church office at 758-2636.
