The Rock Student Ministries

At The Rock our goal is to see students become fully devoted followers of Christ through a four step process; EXPOSE students to the Gospel (Rom 1:16), EQUIP them to grow in their faith (2 Tim 3:16), CONNECT them to a community of believers (Rom 1:12), and CONTRIBUTE by serving God and others (Matt 20:28).

CONNECT: Small groups

The Rock Mid-Week Gathering

Small group meetings are offered throughout the school year at our campus for both Middle School and High School.  We meet on Wednesday's from 7:00-8:30pm in the Rock room except for the first Wednesday of the month when First Friday outings occur.  Our Mid-week gathering is a great way to spend time in community, develop relationships with leaders and grow in your faith while having a fun.  Our doors are open to all students.  So feel free to bring a friend along with you. 

Every meeting begins with dinner and students having an opportunity to hang out for about 30 minutes. After we jump into some large group games for about 20 minutes.  Then, we dive into a small group study breaking into groups by grade or gender for discussion facilitated by an adult leader.  Middle School reports to the Elementary room for small group while High School remains in the Rock room. You’ll meet new people in an open and welcoming environment.  No need to sign up just show up.

For more information, contact Drew at andrew.martinez@mcleanbible.org.

 

School Outreaches

We at the ROCK partner with the Montgomery County FCA to bring Bible studies to various schools in the county as an outreach.  These studies are called "huddles" and allow students a chance to be exposed to the Bible and Christian community in a non-threatening environment.  If you attend one of these schools you can go and meet other Christians at your school or invite your friends to come.  This is a great way to connect with other students in the Rock or friends who don’t have a home church. For a list of FCA huddles at public and private schools in Montgomery County click here. 

For more information or questions about starting an FCA huddle at your school, email Drew at andrew.martinez@mcleanbible.org.

CONTRIBUTE: Service Opportunities

Students in The ROCK have opportunities to serve locally and globally. Here are some ways your student can serve:

Locally:

  • Nursing Home visits, serving at shelters, acts of kindness and Gospel sharing in our community are some examples of our local outreach offered periodically throughout the year. 
  • Kid's Quest- opportunities to impact children with the Gospel message through serving as a tech/av member, co-small group leader or on worship team.  
  • The Rock- we welcome students to serve as greeters, check in station members, band members, tech/av crew or as camp counselors.  Talk to a leader in the Rock about serving in our student ministry.    
  • Lead THE Cause Washington, D.C., is a local missions trip we participate in with Dare 2 Share Ministries.  LTC will be July 29-Aug 2, 2019.

Globally: 

  • Our Summer 2019 global mission trips is yet to be determined.  We will update you soon.

Student Pastor
Close

Andrew was born and raised in Maryland.  A year after graduating from high school he lost his best friend to a car accident and came to realize the truth in James 4:14 "yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes." Drew then recommitted His life to Jesus and pursued Christian education at Washington Bible College where he received his B.A. in Biblical Studies and obtained a M.A. in Human Services with Liberty University Online.  Throughout his years as a college student Andrew was heavily involved in the youth, children's and preaching ministry at his childhood church.  Prior to joining the staff at MBC, he served as a preschool teacher at Naval Support Activity in Bethesda.  Andrew is married to his high school sweetheart, Dina and they have a son, Ezra, and daughter, Anabella.  Andrew enjoys family time, basketball, xbox, movies and chipotle!  He is passionate about impacting teens with the Gospel message and encouraging them to live unashamed lives for Christ.
