Roger William Maslin
Baptist Pastor and Author

      Roger W. Maslin was born on December 14, 1924 in Litchfield, Pennsylvania. He died April 15, 2017 at the age of 92 in Melbourne, Florida. He was predeceased by his wife of 68 years, Martha Craven Maslin, in July 2016. They had two children: Mark Maslin and Cynthia Maslin; three grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

      Roger Maslin was born and raised on a small farm in Pennsylvania and was converted to Christ in the home, and soon was baptized in the Chemung River and joined the Calvary Baptist Church in Athens. He studied agriculture for four years in Athens High School until his conversion to Christ and his call to preach. He then pursued studying for the ministry at the nearest Bible College. He followed by earning a B.A. degree in Bible at Wheaton College; an M.A. degree in Religion at Baylor University; the M. Div. degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; and, finally, the Doctor of Ministry degree at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

      His pastoral ministry took him to Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida, where he led in multiple building programs at churches in Daytona Beach, Dunedin and Sanford. He is the author of A Manual on the Millennium, Dealing with the Difficult, and Think on These Things.

      His thesis for a master's degree in Baylor University on the subject, "The Church," with the subtitle, "A Critique of the Universal Church Theory", was never published, but this work was resource material for Buell Kazee's The Church and the Ordinances.
