Annual Conference Speaker/Teacher - Rev. Gavin Rogers

Rev. Gavin Rogers is the Executive Director of Corazon San Antonio, a local non-profit for the unhoused and marginalized. He also serves as the Associate Pastor at Travis Park Church in downtown San Antonio. He is the founder of the interfaith community group Pub Theology San Antonio. He is a native Texan and is a graduate The Divinity School at Duke University. In 2013, he was selected as the Young San Antonian of the Year for his work of solidarity with the homeless when he lived on the streets of San Antonio for Lent. This award has been given to one San Antonian each year since 1931. In 2018, Gavin traveled with the migrant caravan to better understand the immigration issue and learn the personal stories of migrants.  His work can be found on CNN, NPR, San Antonio Report, and the San Antonio Express News.  Gavin’s mission is to engage the community to seek unconditional love and justice in action to all of our neighbors.

Following his talk, Gavin and Scott Sharp will engage with a panel of NM Conference community ministers in order to help relate his work to our context.
