Seminars and Resources to 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. 

Fall Ownership Seminars | Starting October 13

After “I Do,” Now What?

Mere Christianity (hosted by Kairos)

Arguably the 20th century's most influential Christian writer, C.S. Lewis sought to explain and defend the beliefs that nearly all Christians at all times hold in common. His simple yet deeply profound classic, Mere Christianity, is a book to be thoroughly digested by believers and generously shared with skeptics. Join us Sundays at 10:00 am as we navigate and discuss the pages of this important work. SIGN UP NOW
