Biblical Counselor / Licensed Minister
Linda was born and raised in New York City. In 1985, Linda and her son Rodger Allen Jr. “transplanted” to Rapid City to attend National College. Once Linda adjusted to the culture shock, Rapid City became home. Linda attended National College for one year before transferring and commuting to Black Hills State College. God intercepted Linda’s plan and her college “career” ended after 2 ½ years. Through a series of life challenges, God led Linda to Christian Life Ministries. After going through CLM’s training and working as a sit-in, Linda was asked to pray about joining the ministry team as a counselor and in 2004 she became a full time staff member. Linda is passionate about sharing God’s truth and is always encouraged to see how God uses those truths to transform lives.
