About this blog

Rev. Dr. Rodger Woodworth

This blog is to help envision and equip the transformation of college students across the ethnic and economic divide on campus. The goal of cross-cultural convergence is the coming together of staff and students from different directions so that God will be glorified, students will be transformed and that the Kingdom of God will reflect a rich diversity on our college campuses. That goal will begin to take on a reality when one in three students identified as potential campus ministers are from an ethnic or racial minority and the organization of the CCO begins to be transformed by it.

I am married to Wende my college sweetheart, a father of two, a grandfather of seven and the founding pastor to hundreds at an inter-racial church called New Hope in the North Side of Pittsburgh. I am also the Director of Cross-Cultural Ministries for the CCO, and an adjunct  professor at Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary with a Doctorate of Ministry in Complex Urban Settings. I am passionate about the gospel of grace that saves broken people like me and broken people different then me and makes us all equal at the foot of the cross.
