Upon This Rock Ministries is founded upon the concept of serving our community in both spiritual and practical ways through worship, discipleship, and outreach programs. A non-denominational organization who seeks after the truth of God. Our Mission is to proclaim His righteousness throughout the world and sanctify Him before the people, that all will know that He is the sovereign God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Through him, we offer deliverance “…that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10) We are believers of the Holy Spirit and the five fold ministry; Pastors, Teachers, Evangelists, Prophets and Apostles. We are adamant about community presence and throughout the year we are active and supportive of those who are in need mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. We are interested in the well being of the whole man that no part of a person is left undone. It is important for us to not only be available through presence but as well as in teaching about Christianity according to the King James Bible. We incorporate a family aspect to our membership so that those who are a part of our congregation feel not only as a member of an organization but as a family member. Our overall vision is to build a teen center with a recreational facility that will help empower youth at risk as well as high school dropouts, substance abuse, and single parents.
This facility will be equipped with life skills support, recovery training, spiritual guidance, GED or high school diploma, and vocational training. Currently we provide Homework help, summer camp for children ages 4-13, we also utilize the Youth at Work Program. The center we envision will equipped, enable, and release ordinary people to live extraordinary lives. As we expand our ministry’s future goal and purpose is to purchase property though our “UROCK DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION”. This organization is birthed from our commitment to serving the needs of the community through both outreach and providing housing and resources within the community. Our mission is the following “build supportive facilities for communities such as a youth recreational center and faith-based school, provide employment development services, re-housing for both homeless individuals as well as families and offer both affordable and flexible housing for low to moderate income individuals and families. We also hope to purchase and rehab properties in low income communities at an affordable rate, to help establish homeownership and re-build both the community and the lives of others.
