Corporate Executive: From the Pits of Addiction to Prosperity in Christ

As you know, I own an advertising and marketing agency. I speak at business conferences nationwide. My clients are worldwide I’ve built many successful companies.

So I love to see how God works in the business world.

Take Jordan Rogers.

He works for a world-renowned brand

He celebrates Jesus and all that He has done for him.

No one would have believed that Jordan Rogers would have been a brand manager for Nike.

From a young age, he was addicted to heroin:

“I had this black hole in my soul and just wanted to change the way I felt. I wanted to get high in new and different ways. I wanted to go all in.”

He went in and out of detox plans, but kept running into the law.

Finally, he was forced to go to a drug treatment facility.

In a jail cell, locked in with other inmates fighting over the most measure of goods, Rogers finally prayer to God: “Whoever You are, whatever You are … I need help!”

After 13 months in jail, a guy approached him, shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with Him, and helped deliver him out of addiction and into liberty:

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Rogers thanks God every day for what He has done—and continues to do for him.

And how fitting, that today he represents a company whose brand means “Victory!”

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” (Romans 8:37)

  1. I cry out to You, Lord, as I’m desperate in my plea. Save me from my prison so that the righteous may gather about me and sing of Your good work’s! I would love to hear the story of how he went from the sober living house to being Nike’s North American brand manager!
