“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will by my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” – Acts 1:8
At Rock Hill we believe that God is a missionary God who has graciously redeemed us for a purpose; we have been shown grace in the Gospel so that we might share the gospel both locally and globally. At present, God’s world is comprised of roughly 7.5 billion people from 195 countries who speak 6,500 different languages and represent 11,755 different people groups. 7,084 of these people groups are considered “unreached” in that less than 2% of their population is comprised of evangelical Christians. In fact, 3,169 of the unreached people groups are considered “unengaged” because there are no church planting efforts underway among them. We believe that Jesus died to receive worship as Savior from some within every people group; therefore, we have made it our mission to empower national leaders to reach others within unreached people groups and plant churches among the unengaged.
Rock Hill, therefore, has established global ministry partnerships in Brazil, India and the Middle East. We also support a radio ministry among the First Nations people of Canada called Nations One for Christ. Finally, we are actively involved in international student ministry and missions mobilization locally. We mobilize by providing local cross-cultural ministry opportunities, hosting monthly prayer gatherings, facilitating training seminars, and engaging in short-term trips. These opportunities are listed below:
