Roger and his wife, Robin, are among the founding families of what is now Hope Bible Church. God gave them a burden to help plant a church like this that spread even to Pastor Leake while he was in seminary. From the beginning, the Zeenders have been used by God to spur our fellowship and sense of family. They have opened their home for numerous church gatherings — including Sunday worship for the few weeks between when we left our location in Laurel and when Fulton Elementary became available. They now lead the Greeters and Visitors Ministries, as well as a small group. Roger is also the principal of Hope Academy Tutorial. They have three grown daughters, Emilee (married to Brandon), Laura (married to Jon) and Annette (married to Chris), and five grandchildren.
