Meet the Team
Roger is the lead pastor of Woodstock Assembly. Born and raised in Sycamore, IL, Roger ministered in Carlinville and Fairfield, IL before coming to Woodstock in 2003. He and his wife Annette have four children, nine grandchildren who lovingly refer to him as "Bapa," and an adorable golden doodle names Sawyer.
In his spare time Roger enjoys reading, athletics, and bribing his grandchildren to give him back rubs.
Stephen James Carter
Stephen has been loved by God from his earliest memories. His call to lead people into God's presence through worship naturally occurs in his response to that love. An Elgin native, Stephen currently resides in Woodstock with his beautiful wife, six kids, a dog, and a pig.
Joy grew up in the church and has a special place in her heart for kids due to her own personal experiences. She has been serving our youth for the past several months and does everything from organizing events and activities for all the youth to supporting each of them in their personal lives.
Stephanie does everything from answering phones to planning events, and anything else that helps the church run smoothly. She and her husband live in Marengo and have three children and three sweet baby granddaughters.
