Our Elders

our pastors:

Paul Rogers

Lead Pastor & Elder

Paul became a Christian at university and experienced dramatic life transformation, and so a desire was planted to give his life to sharing the hope we have in Christ, as he experienced that the gospel is true and really does work! Following eleven years serving in London at Westminster Chapel in youth and community work, Paul and his lovely wife Ali were called to Rugby in 2008, along their three (now grown-up) children. They have been privileged to minister at BEC, sharing with the church as they do a common passion for gospel proclamation; to build Bible-based lives among folks in local communities; to encounter more of God’s presence by His Spirit; to set men, women and young people free to be all they can be in God; and for living an adventure, and doing life with friends along the way! Long may it continue!
