He served numerous Assembly of God congregations from 1970 until his retirement in 2008. Rodger was a faithful member of the First Pentecostal Church of Chambersburg where he was active with the music program and any other task that he was called upon to do.

Murray and her children Austyn and Aaralynne; daughter Pamela Ross, her husband Chris, and their children Heather, Nathan, Samuel, and Jessica; and son Rodger Douglas Murray, his wife Doris (Diffenderfer), and their children Gregory and Jordan.

Pastor Rodger always made me laugh. He was good natured and a prankster. Donna, Amber, Pam, Rodger Douglas and family I'm praying God's peace during this sad time. He's celebrating, he's home- I hope that brings you comfort. ❤ love and hugs to all of you.

Dear Donna and Family,
I've known you, Donna, and your "Honey" Rodger since High School, and it's always difficult to see another friend leave this earth. As Alan and I are also Followers of Jesus Christ, we know you're strengthened and finding peace in God's promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Surely, you will miss your lifelong love, but will have joy in your memories and comfort in knowing there will be a great reunion for all eternity and once again you'll be together. Our prayers are with you.
Sincerely in Christ,
Revs. Alan and Barbara (Smetzer) Witter

I'm going to miss your very witty comebacks and how you would always say I don't know whose vehicle that is but I hit it or put a mark on it. Going to miss hearing your voice and seeing you play the piano at church. Till we met again.
