We are family on a journey, bringing to life our purpose in
authentic, uncomplicated community.
We are firmly committed to what we believe is the most fundamental Biblical leadership structure which is simply: there is a Sr. Leader who leads in cooperation with his team. We function as friends, servants and leaders.
- Lead with strength and humility
- Teach and Learn
- Train and Equip
- Prepare new leaders
- Lead and be willing to step back
I would finish by saying this – we as leaders love the church because it belongs to Christ. He has given us the opportunity to steward it and make it strong, pure and productive.
Ted, his wife Joyce and children (now adults) moved back to PA from WI to plant Rock Community Church in July of 2000. A rocker at heart, Ted can occasionally be found leading worship on Sunday mornings although the entire family is gifted musically and either leads worship or serves on worship teams in some capacity. Action movies or action books satisfy his adrenalin needs, an evening with friends over food and drinks is thoroughly enjoyable, and a quiet day at the beach with the family is treasured.
Joyce has been a vital part of what Rock has become, as she is a spiritual mother to countless individuals – providing patient, wise council and encouragement. Joyce’s ability to connect with people and make them feel that they belong is genuine and tangible.
Ted and Joyce share hospitality and accommodations with many travelers, speakers – including family, friends and guests.
Jamie, his wife Tammy and three children (now adults) have been with us since the start of Rock in 2000. He is a leader who brings strength, stability and wisdom. Jamie has been competing in the MMA sport since 2008 and retired undefeated. He continues to train and is an avid extreme sports participant. Jamie is an exquisite cook and loves trying new recipes at gatherings.
Tammy brings an entertaining conversation to every encounter. It is simply impossible to walk away after just a short time with her and not feel completely appreciated. Tammy shares her powerful gift of ‘Helps’ which has been vital through our many seasons of growth and transition. Jamie and Tammy use their notable gift of hospitality and is a natural expression at their household.
