Help us build foundations for a lifetime.
Consider starting a Rock Solid Teen Center in your community to meet the needs of young people and as a means to share your faith with the unchurched. A large majority of children and teens do not attend church, but they’ll come to Rock Solid. There you can develop relationships, meet their needs, witness to your faith and grow your church.
Working along-side a Rock Solid Teen Center consultant is affordable. Our cost is $15 an hour plus mileage. We’ll walk you through the necessary steps to get your facility and programming up and running. And we're not concerned about branding. Use your name and develop your own programming. Our primary goal is to be an affiliation that works together for a common cause.
Rock Solid Teen Centers utilize new and renovated facilities for life-changing programs and experiences. We attract children and teens to the center by offering food, fun activities and a safe and secure place to hang out. We build relationships with them through mentoring. We guide them toward other programs, churches and organizations in the community, statewide, nationally and internationally that will be of benefit to them.
We encourage organizations to participate in Rock Solid by offering volunteers, camps scholarships, and programming opportunities. Tutoring is an important component of our program wherever feasible. The faith-based teen center is a concept that can be duplicated in other communities, rural, small towns, and otherwise.
Churches are encouraged to consider starting a Rock Solid affiliate as a means to reach out to youth. Studies have indicated that many young people have a negative perception of the church and are not likely to attend programming in a church facility (see “Why Nobody Wants to Go to Church Anymore,” by Thom and Joani Schultz). In addition, the Rock Solid Director of the North Manchester affiliate, Mark Eastway, is serving in an extension ministry capacity for the Indiana Conference of the United Methodist Church. This relationship provides a platform to promote and support the program to churches and communities throughout the state.
