About the Organization: 

Pastor Terry and Kelly committed themselves to helping the church grow and thrive again. In 2009, that dream to see a flourishing, vibrant church reaching Crawfordsville’s people came to reality, as they reached a new attendance number of 500 people, regularly maximizing church facilities and in desperate need of a change again – this time, one that was upward and outward in a strategic direction. In 2010, they moved to a new location and a new name – Rock Point Church. 

Currently, they regularly average over 1000 people in weekend Sunday morning services and continue to strive towards their mission to reach the world for Christ, locally, nationally, and globally. As a church, they commit themselves regularly to excellence, high impact worship, relational evangelism and discipleship, intercessory prayer, selfless service, and teaching the authoritative Word of God. They are excited to live out these core values every day as they build relationships with people in anticipation of how God will grow his Kingdom through them.
