Rev. Dr John Rodgers (Dr, John) was raised a Mormon and was ordained as an Elder in the church, but in 1965, after two years as a missionary, he left the church in disappontment and spent decades seeking a church that was spiritually true.
In 1967 was ordained in the church of Universal Brotherhood and in 1995 was elected to the position of Bishop of the New Age Community Church where he has taught for over 30 years.

He woke up one day to discover that, so far as the church was concerned, he was no longer a Mormon. Nonetheless, still feeling like a Mormon, he went back to church and signed up to began again as a novitiate.
Later on, Rodgers and small group of friends set up a New Age church.
In 1992, feeling that no one else had the answers to the nation's problems, John Rodgers ran as an independent candidate for the presidency of the United States of America on the following platform:
