harnessing the power of photography for good

Rock Church :: A Brief Pictorial History

Rock North County had their first “official” Sunday service in their new home on Sunday. For many of the faithful who have been serving, since before Coastline, I could see a collective sense of relief. All those Sundays of setting up and then tearing down were over.

One of the blessings of being part of the photographers at the Rock is we get to see things on behalf of the rest of the body. We really are the eyes of the body. We get to document in photographs what God is doing at the Rock, and in a way, we become historians as well.

For me, it’s an added blessing to see what God has done in North County, because I am blessed to be part of the North County family.

So as the Rock begins a new season of ministry, of spreading Pervasive Hope to every nook and cranny of San Diego and beyond…it’s only fitting to share some photos of the Rock’s journey that has lead to the opening of the North County Campus

1st Rock Satellite Campus: Rock Amplified ~ 2006

There are probably a few folks at the Rock who don’t know that the North County Campus was preceded by the Rock’s first attempt at having a satellite campus, affectionately known as Rock Amplified.  Rock Amplified was held at an elementary school 2 blocks from the Ruffin location.  It quickly became a refuge for families with young children and those wanting a smaller more intimate Rock experience.  With the move to Liberty Station, the Rock wanted everyone focused and together under one roof…
