He graduated from McKinley High School & earned his BA from DeVry University. He served his country in the US Army where he served in the Vietnam War. While living in Chicago he met and fell in love with Linda Roby and was soon joined in marriage to which their son Bennie E. Rodgers Jr (Jeanette) was born.
His professional career was in the IT/Tech sectors where he worked for companies like IBM and Navcom Systems. Bennie had a zeal and love of life, family and friends.

He received his calling from the Lord to lead and feed his people in 1997 when he served as pastor and founder of New Fellowship Baptist Church where he served for over 15 yrs. Bennie received his Doctorate in Divinity and published a book "The Visitation of Curses". Throughout his ministry Bennie served the men and women of Manassas, VA through his prison ministry.
Later in life Bennie found love again when he reconnected with and married his high school sweetheart Pamela (Brown) Rodgers who survives him in his heavenly transition.
Bennie was preceded in death by his father Charlie Mervin Rodgers, mother Rosie Lee Rodgers, sister Mervina (Peaches) Rodgers, brothers Sean Rodgers and Cyrus Rodgers.

If Bennie could leave a spoken word it would be, "if you can believe in life after death you could believe in life after every situation you go through".

May God Bless.
