The Joe and Honey Rodgers Civic Leadership Celebration recognizes Christian leaders who demonstrate excellence and humility as they strengthen others. In the 12th annual celebration of Joe and Honey's community contributions and OAG's 20th Anniversary Year, the 2020 honorees couldn't exemplify these standards more perfectly.

The late U.S. Ambassador Joe M. and Helen "Honey" Rodgers are prime examples of such Kingdom-minded influence. Joe and Honey pointed others to Christ as they led with integrity around the world, nation, and our local community.

As one of the founders and early chair of The Operation Andrew Group, Joe opened the door for us to mobilize Nashville's faith community to serve our city collaboratively. Through a deep love of the Lord and desire to see Nashville flourish, Joe and Honey encouraged others to come together regardless of denomination, ethnic background, and economic status to transform our future.

We honor them by celebrating today's leaders that exhibit the same spirit of Christ-honoring leadership that Joe modeled and Honey continues to display.
