Roger Knowlton | Senior Pastor

Roger is our Senior Pastor and has a four word job description: To Preach, Pray, Lead and Love. He is responsible for overall church vision and sits on the board of elders, the leadership team of Edgewood.

Roger didn’t grow up in Wisconsin, but got here as soon as he could, coming to Edgewood in 1999. He has a B.S. from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana (where he met his sweetie – yay, Diane!), and received his Masters of Divinity at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He previously served as Pastor of Single Adults on the staff of Harvest Bible Chapel in Rolling Meadows, Illinois.

He and Diane celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2017, and have three kids, Josh, Elisabeth and Annie. Roger loves to listen to audible books and walk on the boardwalk behind the Edgewood Waupun Campus.
