Pastor Rodney Murphy

Originally from Northeast Ohio, Rodney pursued his call by God into full time pastoral ministry by getting his Bachelors of Religious Studies/Pastor Ministry/Leadership degrees from the University of Valley Forge in Phoenixville, PA in 1992.

Over the last 27 years he has been in full time ministry in the local church. He has served in every aspect of ministry and has a real passion for the younger generations to know Christ. Currently, he is the Lead Pastor at Faith Church in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, with campuses in Drums and Weatherly, PA as well.

Rodney has been blessed to travel the world in order to serve and give the gospel message over his almost three decades of pastoral ministry. His goal for serving on FFR’s Board is to bring a pastoral perspective to the ministry and to help bring a connection to churches nationwide. He says, “I believe that God has given me a privileged opportunity to be a part of an exciting ministry that is effecting the lives of children and families in Romania and around the world. I am looking forward to all that is yet to come.”

Rodney has been happily married to his beautiful bride Stephanie since 1991. He loves being a father to his two awesome kids, Nathan and Alyssa.
