This is our personal blog – I have several others that include a variety of information, but none devoted to the subject of my family. This blog enables me to write about things directly relating to subjects that interest me and my family, and to share my personal views on things that my other blogs do not.
It’s my hope you enjoy your visit and that you’re better-off having visited than you were before your visit.
Who are the Mangolds?
The Mangold’s are a Christian family located in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. My name is Rodger Mangold, My highest callings in life are that of husband, father, and grandfather! I have 2 wonderful grown children who are married with wonderful spouses. My grandkids are the highlights of our lives. My wife, Shannon, spoils them like any good “Noni” would, and “Popi” (yours truly) helps fund all of that spoiling with a full-time job at Ford Motor Company since 1996.
My major passions are ministry and foreign missions. We founded a church in 2011 called Turning Point Ministries in lovely downtown Rochester, Michigan. Our church loves God, and loves our community. We help feed the hungry with our food pantry, and other community initiatives, as well as support World Missions through the Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ (ALJC).
In 2015 I was appointed as the European World Missions Supervisor for the ALJC and oversee works all over Europe including Ireland, Norway, Germany, Poland, Bulgaria, Russia, The Baltic Region, Spain, and Italy. This is profound honor which was a God-send and enabled us to expand the reach of this life changing Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Why a Blog?
