Rollin has been the lead pastor of three churches: Bradford Baptist Church, Bradford, NY for 9 1/2 years; Ross Corners Baptist Church, Vestal, NY for 14 years; and Tuscarora Baptist Church, Addison, NY for 6 years. He has just finished two long-term interims at both Emmanuel Baptist Church, Penn Yan, NY and Bible Baptist Church, Williamson, NY. For the last two years, Rollin has been part of the faculty of the Northeast Fellowship’s New School of Theology and Ministry. Rollin and Susan have a passion for discipleship.
