“ And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.”
Outreach, Evangelism & Discipleship
Acts 20:35 “ In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Matthew 23:11 “ The greatest among you shall be your servant.”
Hebrews 13:16 “ Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
We focus on three aspects of Outreach : Local Outreach, Global Outreach, and Church Planting.
Mark 16:15 “ And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”
Acts 1:8 “ But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
2 Timothy 4:5 “ As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”
Matthew 28:19 “ Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”
When you attend Rock Solid Community Church these are the things you can expect:
Acceptance. We want everyone no matter where you are in life or who you are will be welcomed to come and be a part of what God is doing within this body that makes up His Church.
Relationships. In most churches the main and major emphasis is placed on Sundays. We believe Sunday mornings are essential and should allow you to see the Word of God presented in a way that drives you to maybe come to Christ, as a result serve Christ, and then be sent out into the world to be a light for Him. By coming on a Sunday it gives you the opportunity to then be plugged into a Community Group that will be with people who you live life with from week to week. We want Relationships to supersede anything else we do. It starts with a relationship with Christ, then others. True discipleship and development happens amongst those you are closest to.
Biblical Teaching. As someone who can stand behind this statement from personal experience, we believe the whole Word of God is life giving, life breathing, inspired by God, given by Him to mankind, and foundational to our everyday life. We will govern and do all things by scripture and not stray away from its truths and the context of scripture.
Intentional Ministry. A lot of times in churches things can be done just for the sake of doing it. Our aim is to keep it very intentional and simple here at RSC. We want to take the love and salvation we have received from Christ Jesus and live it out in every aspect of our life. We do not want to cloud that vision with insignificant events or activities that do not support or accomplish the vision of the Gospel. We believe that the simplicity of gathering together amongst each other as brothers, sisters, friends, and families allow that to trigger us to go out and minister and be the light in our community.
When I was 25 I started a ministry called Rock Solid Outdoors. I took something I enjoyed doing, hunting, and used it to glorify someone I love that changed my life, Jesus. Now 8 years later that ministry has passed on but the ministry for me and my family I feel like is just getting started. Through the ups and downs of seeking after the Lord and serving Him through four years of Student Ministry my heart and direction has transitioned to a new place. I feel as if the passion for teaching, communicating, and leading people to the love of Christ is truly what I am put on this earth to do.
Rock Solid Community Church is a continuation of the passion that originated from Rock Solid Outdoors. After surrendering to Christ, Church played a pivotal role in ushering and showing me how and the importance of experiencing an all out relationship with Christ. As I have talked to hundreds of people over my life and church is brought up, it is something that a lot of times is looked at in the wrong light or left a bad impression on that particular person’s life. I can understand and even sympathize with many of the stories that I encounter but at the end of it all church is still a necessity. I have spent years of my life in a church with anywhere from 100-300 people. The past two years I have spent being a part of a phenomenal church that was planted and now houses close to 3,000 attendees through three services on Sundays. With that being said I have been privileged to learn and see so much from both ends of the spectrum, as I like to put it. I am excited now to take the call that Christ has put on my life of being a Pastor,as well as a leader, and plant a church of my own within my hometown, the community of Gaffney, SC.
