Roger Wilson

I was saved in 1968 at Buckner Baptist Church at the tender age of 7 years. To this day, 50 years later, I can still relive the power of conviction. My twin brother and me, were baptized in October at the 74 bridge of the White River, and I can still recall that the water was freezing.

I have had the privilege to serve in various roles in the church; including teaching Sunday school and Wednesday night bible study. I currently serve as song leader and maintenance director.

When not at the church, I specialize in custom home building and repair. I enjoy deer hunting and tournament fishing.

I have been married for 33 years to Jerri Johnson Wilson. Our two sons Colby and Ethan are focused on their careers.

Two of my favorite bible verses are Luke 2:11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord, and Matthew 28.6. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 

Buckner’s strength is that our church does not dilute the word of God. The people of this congregation are my closest family, as they have stood beside me through every trial and tribulation, that my family has gone through.

They are a true family
