Bishop Michael J. Rogers, a native of Brooklyn, New York answered the call to ministry in 1974. As a freshman to ministry, he prepared himself through prayer and consecration with diligent study of the word of God. His preparation for ministry qualified him for ordination as an Elder of the Church in 1978. By the leading of the Holy Spirit, he was summoned to the pastorate of the Tidewater Bibleway Temple – Kingdom Church in Portsmouth, Virginia in 1984. Bishop Rogers holds a Master of Theology Degree from the Covington Theological Seminary in Chattanooga, TN, and a Doctorate of Ministry Degree from the same Institution.

Bishop Rogers’ ministry has been marked by anointed preaching, insightful teaching, and a burden for the souls of men. In 1998, Bishop Rogers was consecrated to the Bishopric and is the
Jurisdictional Prelate of the Kingdom Commonwealth Diocese of Virginia, Bible Way Church World-Wide, Inc. As a pastor of pastors and a leader of leaders, Bishop Rogers was elevated, by the same reformation, to the office of Vice Presiding Bishop and Apostle of the Church.

Bishop Rogers’ spiritual and natural life has covered a span of great experiences ranging from musician, song writer, recording artist, and producer. He is the sole proprietor of Kingdom Enterprise, and as well serves as Chaplain of the Sheriff’s Department in the City of Portsmouth, Virginia.

Bishop Rogers credits his success first to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and then to his parents, his father and hero Apostle Huie L. Rogers, Presiding Bishop of the Bible Way Church World-Wide, Inc.,
and his mother and life coach Mother Doris Rogers.

Bishop Rogers is the proud father of Tia and Michael Rogers, and grandfather of Jayla Rogers.

Bishop Rogers’ desire is that this entire world be covered with the word of God, that the Lord’s kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven, and that everyone be touched with a life-changing word as he has been known to declare, “Has God got a word for you.”
