Rev. Rogers Cain
“I have fought a good life. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith; henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give at that day.” II Timothy 4: 7-8

LAKE CHARLES -- The Chief Shepherd of his fold has laid down his staff and has pilgrimed beyond the reach of mortal man. On Saturday, Nov. 16, as he beheld the light that beckoned him from that yonder distant shore, The Most Reverend Rogers Cain answered the call.
Rev. Cain was born Aug. 29, 1929 to the union of the late Moses and Rosella Cain in Sunset. As a child he was taught divine precepts and given spiritual guidance by his parents. He met Thelma Matthews, who later became his wife on Sept. 18, 1948 and mother of their children, Linda C. Badon and Charles E. Cain. They resided in Crowley for 44 years and moved to Lake Charles in 1991.
The Godly principals instilled in this servant led him to commit his life to Christ as a young man. He was a member of the First Church of God in Christ in Crowley. He worked diligently as a young man under the pastorate of Elder Leroy Winbush, and later under the pastorate of Bishop Roy L.H. Winbush. He served faithfully as a deacon, Sunday School Superintendent, teacher for the Young People Willing Workers, officer of finance and chairman of the Deacon Board.
In the seventies, Rev. Cain acknowledged his call to the Gospel Ministry and later was ordained an elder in 1979 by Bishop J.W. White. A year later, he received his first charge as pastor of the Philadelphia Church of God in Christ in Mossville. In 1987 he was assigned as pastor of the Freeman Memorial Church of God in Christ in Lake Charles. Through the years, God has blessed his servant mightily, as well as the ministries under his leadership. Both congregations have grown, churches were renovated, and additional properties secured.
Because of his faithfulness, leadership abilities, and love for God and his people, he was consecrated to the position of Superintendent of the Lake Charles District of the Church of God in Christ in 1990. In addition to these duties, Rev. Cain served as Sunday School Superintendent of the Lafayette District and served as Treasurer for the First Jurisdiction of Western Louisiana and a member of the Credit Union Board for the First Jurisdiction.
His concern for God’s churches went beyond Philadelphia and Freeman COGIC, therefore he affiliated himself with the Interdenominational Ministerial General Alliance. He has been an active member since May of 1998 and served as president for four years.
Honors and awards presented to Supt. Cain were numerous. Among those received were an honorary State Senator on July 6, 1978 by the Louisiana Senate Chamber Baton Rouge and an honorary Doctorate Degree on June 21, 2002 from The Lord’s Outreach School of Theology of Lake Charles.
In 1956, Rev. Cain started his first business, Cain’s Slaughter House, in Crowley. After 15 years, he opened a second business, Cain’s Meat Market. Supt. Cain was well known for his famous meat specialities, which he shipped nationwide. After 35 years in business, he retired and dedicated his time to the ministry.
Other involvements include a tenure of approximately 10 years as a member of the Selective Induction Board for the United State Military in Crowley. He also served as a member of the Acadia Parish Juror Selection Pool for approximately 15 years. For many years, he was a member of the Crowley Chamber of Commerce. His interest in his community was demonstrated by his active involvement in various community and civic events in Crowley, Lake Charles and Mossville.
He leaves to celebrated his life and cherish his memory his loving and devoted wife of 54 years, Thelma M. Cain; his daughter, Linda C. Badon and her husband Ronnell B. Badon of Lafayette; his son, Charles E. Cain and his wife Linda H. Cain of Crowley’ five grandchildren, Timica C. Ceasar (Darrell), Robin B. Brookter (Bryant), Nicole Cain, Jennifer Badon and Cornelius Rogers Cain; five great grandchildren, Jeremi Brookter, Jordan Brookter, D.J. Ceasar, Jasmyn Guidry and Kaitlyn Guidry; four brothers, Odes Cain Senior (Mary Ann) of Houston, Moses Cain Senior (Judith) of Lake Charles, Leroy Cain Senior (Viola) of Crowley and Joseph Cain Senior of Fort Worth, Texas; three sisters, Viola Wright (Joseph) and Rosa Mae Williams of Houston and Beatrice Savoy (Joseph) of Crowley; his Godchildren, Dorothy McClain of Houston, Magellan Deville of Sunset and Donnie Williams of Lake Charles; cherished nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Visitation will begin at 6 p.m. with a Memorial Service beginning at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21 at Philadelphia Church of God in Christ in Mossville. Funeral Services will be at noon on Friday, Nov. 22, at Saints Memorial Church of God in Christ in Lake Charles. Bishop L.H. Winbush, Jurisdictional Prelate of First Jurisdiction Church of God in Christ will officiate.
The family extends its gratitude to the doctors of M.D. Anderson Hospital especially Dr. Robert Wolff, Dr. Votea, Dr. Pister and Dr. Durand and their staffs, Dr. Robin Rougeau, Dr. Woodard, Dr. Looney, Dr. Leroy Fredrick and Dr. Thompson and their staffs, all of Lake Charles, the nurses and assistants on the oncology floor at Memorial Hospital and the staff of Hospice of Lake Charles for the excellent care provided throughout his difficult period.
