Dr. Roger Richardson serves as current President for Rhema University, which he founded in 2001
as an alternative to an international need. His fervor with those in Ministry led him to observe that
there was a lack of men and women trained and equipped to be effective leaders. Hence his slogan: “Teaching Followers to Become Leaders.” His passion for leadership and individual growth
continues to impact cities and nations as he conveys Rhema University's local and global vision. Education is a MUST.
