Our missions ministries are about inviting members of Church on the Rock to reach outside themselves, and show the love of God in practical ways on the Hamilton Mountain, and around the world. Currently, Church on the Rock is running two main missions:
The Dominican missions team, led by Crystal Armstrong, provides financial, prayerful, and physical help in the Dominican Republic. Through a unique partnership with El Circulo Church in Santo Domingo, Church on the Rock helps with three main ministries: an orphanage of 35 children, a school with 100 students, and a leper colony. This partnership with El Circulo allows Church on the Rock to truly understand the needs of the Dominican people. The Dominican missions team meets monthly and is always looking for more volunteers interested in investing their time and prayer in this important ministry.
Margaret Dickin leads out tutoring ministry, which reaches children in the Hamilton area and shows them God's love. Through free tutoring support in English, Civics, Careers, Geography, Math, History, Science, and other subjects, volunteers are partnered with students at Sir Allan McNab Secondary School who are struggling academically. The tutoring ministry provides after-school snacks and stationery and work one-to-one with high school students. With daily lessons from 3-4:15 p.m. during the high school semester, this ministry is a wonderful way to give back to the community and share God's love and peace with students.
