Roger Foster - Year Entered 1955

Roger Foster

From the family of Roger Foster:

Our family is deeply saddened to inform you that our father, Roger Foster, died peacefully at his home on the afternoon of February 27, 2017. A true servant of God, he laid down his life for the church. We now look forward to the better day that is coming.

Roger was born in Doniphan, Missouri to Willie and Zelma Foster in 1936.  He first heard the "World Tomorrow" radio program when he was 13 years old.  He tuned in to the broadcast regularly as a teenager, which convicted him to begin keeping the Sabbath, much to his parents’ astonishment.  After graduating as Salutatorian of Doniphan high school in 1955, he set off to attend Ambassador College in Pasadena, California. Three baptizing tours in 1958, 1959, and 1960, saw him travel to all the lower 48 United States and many provinces of Canada. Roger was first hired by the work in 1958 to the Visiting Program and in the fall of 1959 he was sent out as a ministerial trainee under Gerald Waterhouse and Burk McNair. In October of 1960, he married his loving wife of 56 years, Janice Roemer. As newlyweds, they began the first assignment of their longtime ministry in Long Beach and Los Angeles, California. He and Janice served the church, faithfully, in 28 different congregations over the course of 54 years. Roger was known for being firmly grounded in God’s word. He was used powerfully by God to preach the gospel and to help prepare God’s people for the soon coming Kingdom. He was a rock in troubled times for the people he served. His legacy is truly one of agape love that will be felt for years to come by those whom he selflessly and tirelessly served.

A memorial service is planned for March 18th

Psalm 116:15-16 Precious in the sight of the LORD Is the death of His saints. O LORD, truly I am Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant; You have loosed my bonds.
