Pastor Fry Blog
Sunnyside Baptist Church in Rogers, AR welcomes their new pastor. Rodney Fry, originally of Mountain Home, became pastor in March of 2016. Fry received his BS from Central Baptist College in Conway and went on to gain his Masters from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, MO.
Fry has over 19 years experience growing smaller churches. He has fostered outreach through creative ways in the past and has plans to connect with Rogers through Sunnyside Baptist. He is planning upcoming events to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the community. He also has future programs in the works that are aimed at the same goal.
As a full time pastor, Fry feels his biggest challenge will be time. He will be juggling his family, meetings etc with all the responsibilities of his new pastorate. Fry realizes that everyone battles the clock, but is more than willing to put in the long hours to get to know his congregation and build trusting relationships.
Fry wants to develop a personal knowledge of each member because he believes, “Each of us have a Divine Purpose that no one else can fulfill.” Fry has a strong desire to lead the church in evangelism. He stated, “Church members must move from the pew into the highways and byways to reach the lost.” He desires to instill in each person a “yearning for the endless teachings of the Word of God.”
