2013. An extraordinary year.
If one seeks to get a good look at the majesty of God, nature is always a good place to begin.
But should a trip to the mountains not be a possibility at the moment, all one has to do to find His glory is spend a few minutes inside this annual report; the handprint of God appears on every page. God has blessed our mission to establish Pervasive Hope in every street and every person with extraordinary resources. This report accounts for how we used it.
In 2013, our services, outreaches and ministry teams helped to create a way for more than 5,000 people to make a first-time decision for Christ. While it is the most important thing we do, it is just the beginning. God has been faithful to grow our numbers as well as outreach opportunities, and our Pervasive Hope initiative. God is on the move, taking territory and allowing the Rock Church a chance to be on the front lines.
Let me also recognize the extraordinary role of all our dedicated and inspiring volunteers, generous donors and hard working staff who tirelessly give of themselves in the name of Christ. They are the backbone, brains and brawn of the Rock Church.
Lastly, as you peruse these pages, please keep in mind that they also reflect your generosity and sacrifice for which I am personally so grateful. You made 2013 an extraordinary year. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for 2014.
