Pastor Roger Norwood
Position: Director of Creative Arts

Roger was a stock broker in his former life and after retiring from his practice, he was enjoying  golf, travel and working with the Seniors Ministry at Bakersfield First Assembly. 


He has long been a prominent member of Bakersfield’s theatrical community, having starred in many productions for Starlight of Kern, Bakersfield Civic Light Opera and Stars Dinner Theatre.



This background made Roger a perfect choice in 2002 for our Director of Creative Arts. In this capacity he has produced many Sunday morning sketches, as well as numerous productions  including: Christmas Shoes, 1776, Once Upon A Christmas, The Gospel According To Scrooge, and many more.



Roger loves teaching from the Word of God and hosts Faithbuilder’s Bible class in the Blue Chapel Sunday mornings, as well as the auditorium class in the FMC on Wednesday nights.


Roger loves music, great books, theatre, fine restaurants and if you hear someone singing a Broadway show tune coming down the hall, . . . guess who!
