Since The Rock opened in April 2000, we purposed that ministry to kids and youth would be primary, not secondary or babysitting. We truly believe that we’re raising up an army of world changers and giant slayers!
Corey and Kristin Theetge
Kids & J12 Pastors
0-5 Year olds
It is our goal for children at the earliest age group to begin to understand who they are in Christ. This begins by teaching them about who God is and what He says about them. Children will learn how to hear from God and will hear from Him.
Children need more than the elementary principles if they are going to continue walking with the Lord. We encourage kids to pray, read their Bibles and actively journal every day. They will establish disciplines that will enable them to grow in their relationship with God throughout their lives
Our focus is reaching a generation before they need to be rescued. Through our L7 (Live the Seven Words) Discipleship program, fun and exciting services, and meaningful events, kids will connect with a real God that has an amazing plan for their lives. We desire for every child that comes through J12 to echo the words of Jesus at Twelve, "I must be about My Father's business."

Our Middle School Ministry is focused on creating an atmosphere where young people genuinely encounter Jesus. By teaching our youth the Word of God and engaging them through our services, we believe that our young people will walk in God's intended purpose for their lives.

Adonay & Melissa Gutierrez
High School Pastors
We are here to equip our high schoolers to become who God has called them to be through discipleship and community. This world has led our generation astray for too long but we have answered the call to follow the most loving, trustworthy, faithful King and leader: Jesus Christ! We believe that God is not just trying to get us to heaven but get heaven into us. Life on earth should look different for followers of Jesus, as we bring God’s kingdom to earth.
