“‘In the last days, God says
‘I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.'”
In the fifth chapter of the letter to the Hebrews we find an exhortation (pictured below) to not only be teachers of God’s Word, but also to be students of God’s Word.
Apollos, “an eloquent man, well versed in the Scriptures,” found the righteous teachers whom helped him to grow into spiritual maturity in Prisca (Priscilla) and her husband, Aquila.
“Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was an eloquent man, well versed in the Scriptures. He had been instructed in the way of the Lord and was fervent in spirit. He spoke and taught accurately about Jesus, though he knew only the baptism of John. And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him in and explained to him the way of God more accurately.” (Acts 18:24-26)
Later in the The Acts of the Apostles (21:8-9), we find four more women who served the early church. These four women remain nameless, simply remembered as Philip’s daughters who prophesied.
Raised in the Episcopalian church founded by her parents, Paige Rogers and her family incurred, and continue to carry, tremendous sadness in departing their beloved church after the denomination’s national leadership embraced unbiblical beliefs.
In the Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 8, we learn of the persecution of the Church in Jerusalem. We are told that, with the exception of the Apostles, the Christians were “scattered throughout the regions.”
It was those scattered believers who then “went everywhere preaching the word.”

As Christ told us, ” What has been will be again. There is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
We are living in a time where the ministry of the laity is more important than we ever could have imagined…
Recognizing that there has been a great void in courageous, outspoken doctrinal clarity from the vast majority of church leaders, and inspired by the Biblical accounts of
of Philip’s four daughters,
Junia(s) (a female Apostle according to St. Paul),
Euodia and Syntyche,
and other strong women of the Bible,
Paige Rogers began this online ministry as an ordained lay minister (pastor) to share the unpolluted Word of God through her gift of painting and as a wordsmith.
Honoring and fully trusting in God, Paige Rogers has embraced her role as a woman in the church.
As such, she does not lead or preach within a formal church.
This unique, online ministry allows Paige to share God’s Word through her art and her words, always allowing the Holy Spirit to work through her.
Paige’s purpose is to honor God through her artworks by sharing her Christian reflections, calling on Biblical truths and sound exegesis.
Additionally, Paige’s work in investigative journalism will often grace the pages of this ministerial website as she contends for the faith in a fallen world.
She is also a former Early Childhood Development professional, and an avid history/civics enthusiast.
