our story

 
 

A Bible, boxing gloves and five boys … that’s how Rock Ministries started. With its goal to reach at-risk, inner city youth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Rock has now grown to serve over 5000 kids through sports, arts, music, recreation, mentoring and Bible studies.

Through our church, Calvary Chapel of Kensington, we also serve the community with outreaches, support for addicts and others in need, a food pantry, and most importantly the consistent teaching of the Word of God.

Our neighborhood of Kensington is known far and wide as a center of the drug trade, with all the crime and violence that it brings. It is among the poorest neighborhoods in America where homelessness and hunger are everyday realities. Above all, it is a place that needs Jesus.

And the Rock has been privileged to witness God work in this very dark place. He is transforming lives and bringing hope to this otherwise hopeless inner-city ‘hood! He is the true Rock!
