John was born to Rev. John Rogers and Elizabeth Denison at Ipswich in 1666. He graduated at Harvard College, in 1684, the year of his father's death.

"He is desired to assist with his cousin Rev. John Denison, the Rev. Mr. Hubbard in the ministry at Ipswich. In October, 1692, he is ordained colleague with Mr. Hubbard, who, in 1702, being unable to preach, gives up the whole work of the ministry to Mr. Rogers, 'till suitable help can be obtained. In 1706, May 26th, he preaches the Election sermon ; in 1743, July, at the age of 78, he writes an interesting account of a revival in his Congregation, which was published, "No. 1." in "Christian History.; " such was the strength of his mind, the amount of his acquisitions in learning and theology, the prominence of his piety and persevering labors of his ministry, that he held a high rank in the estimation of the people and the public." He died Dec. 28th, 1745, in the 80th year of his age, of a stroke of paralysis. His parishioners voted L200, 0. T., for his funeral expenses."
