A church experience that would authentically reach beyond Sunday morning services into the everyday lives of real people with real problems, doing the best they can to pursue God in life.
Led by our Lead Pastor Jason Tucker, a close group of friends, family and fellow pastors began dreaming and praying about the potential and legacy a church like this could have in a world so desperately seeking to KNOW GOD authentically. God led our hearts to 5 cities throughout southern and central Michigan, that today over 600,000+ people call home. It was there that the dream we now know as NorthRock Church, Ann Arbor began.
From 5 families meeting in a living room, our launch team grew to over 75 people, all wholeheartedly committed to the mission of planting churches that unchurched and spiritually restless people would love to attend.
From a living room to a banquet hall, we eventually made it to our new home at The Sheraton Hotel in Ann Arbor in September of 2015 where we held our first public service. Now just a little over one year after our launch God has proven himself faithful to the mission He gave us time and time again. Over 150+ now call NorthRock home from all over greater Ann Arbor metro area. 75+ people made decisions to give their lives to Christ in our first year, 60 have taken the next step in their faith journey by being baptized. 32 small groups have sprouted up all over this region, people meeting together each week to encourage each other, grow in their faith in Christ and do life together.
We’ve been committed from day one to what Jesus said in Matthew 28:19, “GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES”. You don’t have to hang around very long to learn that to us, being the church beyond our walls is a really big deal to us. That’s why we committed from day one to give 10% of all giving “TO’ NorthRock “THROUGH” NorthRock to make an eternal difference right here in our communities. This year alone over $34,000 has been sent out to share the hope of Christ with the homeless, the hungry, the hurting, and those without hope here in our great city.
One year in we can’t help but be inspired by all that He is yet to do through the lives of people like you that simply say YES to being a part of God’s greater purpose in the world. NorthRock is, and always will be, a church committed to helping people KNOW GOD personally. A family committed to helping each other FIND FREEDOM for our yesterday’s and DISCOVER PURPOSE for our lives today. A people passionate about MAKING A DIFFERENCE in the world around us, one life at a time.
That’s our story. That’s our church. All for the glory of God who made it all possible. With His help, we know..
