Tom Rodgerson serves with the BCM/D as a missionary providing counseling and support.
Tom encourages pastors and churches through counseling, coaching, and consulting. He directs the Ministers Counseling Service, provides coaching for church planters, and consults with churches who are in need of mediation or who are working on transformation in a crucial time of transition.
He has been serving in that capacity since 1990. In 1998, he was hired as a consultant more formally with BCMD. He served as a local pastor for 13 years and then served as executive director of Centrepointe Counseling, Inc. for 20 years where he still serves as the clergy and congregational care coordinator. During that time he also completed his Ph.D. with a research focus on clergy burnout.
Currently, Tom is a full-time faculty member of Loyola University Maryland in the Department of Pastoral Counseling where he serves as director of the MA Program in Spiritual and Pastoral Care and teaches across the M.A., M.S., and Ph.D. programs. His professional writing recently has focused on topics such as pastoral diagnosis, clergy self-renewal, and marital assessment. He is also a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Maryland.
Tom has been married to Beverly Chancey Rodgerson for 44 years and they have three children and 2 grandchildren.
In his spare time he enjoys gardening, hiking, scuba diving, and playing with the grandchildren.
