Take charge of your own growth and invite others into the process


OWNERSHIP is not the final step of our spiritual growth process, but rather a mark of your maturity as a Christ-follower. This step is in addition to weekly worship, community involvement and regular serving at Black Rock Church. At this stage you should be “owning” your own growth and inviting others into the process. 

This may involve attending a seminar, deeper Bible Study, going on a mission trip, attending a conference, participation in a local outreach, evangelism, discipleship etc. Check below for current Ownership opportunities.
