The R.O.C.K. Ministry is a nonprofit organization based in Rochelle, Illinois.

The ministry is run by a small board of directors who meet monthly to discuss any R.O.C.K.-related happenings and to plan ahead for the next weekends. The board also selects the weekend leaders for the next year and otherwise oversees the organization and execution of the weekends.

We are a nondemoninational ministry, and both our board and team worship at various local Christian churches.

Mission Statement

The R.O.C.K. Ministry provides a Christ-centered environment to help youth develop a one-on-one personal relationship with Jesus Christ and one another, giving them a solid foundation and nurturing them into the fullness of His love.
