Rod hails from Oregon, but grew up in Las Vegas. He graduated from Rancho High School in 1971. Rod retired from public service after a combined 30 years with the Nevada Dept. of Transportation and Clark County Public Works. In 2004, Rod also retired, as a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy Reserves, after a 20 year career. Rod surrendered his life to Jesus Christ in 2003.
In the spring of 2010, God arranged for Rod to meet Rosie. It was quickly apparent that God had placed them together to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Rod proposed marriage 3 weeks after they met.
They were married on the 4th of September 2010, exactly one day after he retired from his job at the county. For their honeymoon, Rod and Rosie went to Kauai, where they plastered the island with the gospel and witnessed to many.
After they returned, they continued to boldly proclaim the "good news" wherever they've gone. And they have no intention of letting up. They both love the Lord very, very much and are actively involved in both the Church and with their evangelism ministry, Truth 4 Las Vegas. Rod and Rosie became members of Faith Christian Fellowship in 2014. They have 3 sons: Joseph, Gary and Jeff.
