Meet the Pastor
Pastor Wayne is a dynamic preacher with a supernatural calling to equip and train the people of God to expand the Kingdom of God. He possess a unique blend of spiritual gifts, professional training and experience.
Pastor Rohde has been a nearly lifelong resident of the Milwaukee area. Married in 1967, he and his late wife, Nancy, have two daughters, Nicole and Kristy, and six grandchildren. Prior to entering the ministry, Pastor Wayne worked for 12 years for the W. H. Brady Co. where he was Quality Control manager before leaving to study for the ministry. Nancy worked as a registered nurse and nursing supervisor fir a nursing home until taking over as principal of Jubilee Christian School in 1984. The school operated for 20 years. The work of educating young children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord continues through the Preschool and Daycare. Although Nancy went home to be with Lord, her vision for education and Pastor’s fervor for ministry has not diminished.
On December 6, 1975 Pastor Rohde received a supernatural calling into the ministry as the Lord revealed to him the “charter” of the ministry he was later to enter. The calling consisted of words from Isaiah. 59:19b “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”
In 1978 the Rohde’s moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma to attend Rhema Bible Training Center, a two year school for ministers. While going to Rhema the Rohde’s attended Faith Christian Fellowship and were greatly influenced and inspired by the ministry of Pastor Buddy Harrison. Both graduated in 1980 and returned to found what is now Jubilee Christian Family Church. Pastor Rohde was ordained in 1981 by Faith Christian Fellowship and in 1986 by Rhema Bible Church, both in Tulsa. After Harrison’s passing in 1998, Pastor Rohde has looked to Pastor Mark Barclay and the Righteous Preacher’s Network as his spiritual authority.
Since entering the ministry in 1980, Pastor Rohde has labored to fulfill the holy calling given to him to “stoutly defend the truth that God gave once for all to his people to keep without change through the years.” Jude 3, TLB

Sue has attended Jubilee since 1987 and became involved with the Children’s Ministry program shortly thereafter, wanting to be a part of the great things her own two boys – David and Steven – were experiencing. Her role gradually expanded from being a teacher’s helper to teaching, then heading up the pre-school classes and eventually overseeing the entire Children’s Ministry program, from Nursery to Pre-Teens.
