Innovo Publishing Signs Beloved and Best-Selling Author, Joyce Rogers
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Nov. 14, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Innovo Publishing announces it has signed Joyce Rogers to a publishing deal with Chosen to Be a Minister's Wife, scheduled for release in February 2013. Mrs. Rogers, the wife of legendary minister, Dr. Adrian Rogers, former pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church, shares personal insights and experiences as a minister's wife of 54 years.
"Being a minister's wife is a calling from God. I was married to Adrian for 54 years before the Lord took him home. We grew closer to God and to each other over those years, but it wasn't always roses. Through Chosen to be a Minister's Wife, I hope to help prepare the next generation of ministers' wives by sharing my experiences -- both joyful and difficult -- and the insights the Lord taught me."
Chosen to be a Minister's Wife provides personal and unique insights for wives of ministers and those considering such as call. It is an invaluable insider's view for ministers and their families and friends of the joys and challenges faced by ministers' wives. Chosen to be a Minister's Wife will be released globally in February 2013.
"In Chosen to be a Minister's Wife, Joyce has penned a very personal, transparent, and biblically based volume," said Dr. Bart Dahmer, President of Innovo Publishing. "I believe her experiences and counsel are invaluable not only for ministers' wives but for their husbands, too. Her insights are eye-opening and applicable to those in ministry as well as to Christian couples in all walks of life."
Joyce Rogers is an author, speaker, and wife of the late Dr. Adrian Rogers, pastor for 32 years of the well-known Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee, and the three-term president of the Southern Baptist Convention. A pioneer of women's ministry in the Southern Baptist Convention and a Bible teacher for 60 years, Joyce loves encouraging and challenging others in their Christian walk through speaking to ministers' wives, widows, and women of all ages. She is a committed homemaker and mother of five children, grandmother of nine, and great-grandmother of seven.
