Rev. Alexandra Rodgers
Rev. Alexandra Rodgers was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. She grew up in the Presbyterian church and was active in the life of her home congregation. Alex completed her undergraduate degree at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas and received her master of divinity from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Austin, Texas.
Rev. Rodgers has served as a hospital chaplain at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas and East Jefferson General Hospital in Metairie, Louisiana. Prior to her call to Timberridge, she served Decatur Presbyterian Church in Decatur, GA and First Presbyterian Church in Parsons, KS. Alex is married to Keenan and they have two rambunctious yet lovable dogs, Bowie and Penny Lane. Alex and Keenan love to travel and in their spare time, they enjoy live music, going out to eat, playing games, doing puzzles, and spending time with friends.
In ministry, Alex has a passion for pastoral care, preaching, and building relationships inside and outside of the church. She believes that God’s grace meets each of us where we are and that none of us is ever far from the love of God in Christ Jesus.
