100 HOSTS - 9 CITIES - 123 ACTIVITIES (AND RISING)
The 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 the power of the people of Rock Ministries. They find their strength in their faith in Jesus. 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. Visit The Rock and feel the strength the people work with.
