We are a multi-ethnic and multi-generational church made up of college students, professionals, singles, married couples, and children of all ages. Our Sunday service is casual and friendly with meaningful worship music, relevant teaching from the Bible, and a fun kids program.
Scott Joseph, who was a pastor at Vine Church in Carbondale, IL initially felt God calling him to plant High Rock in 2007. In November of that year, the plans for starting the church were announced at Vine, and a team of 25 people responded to God's call to move to Bloomington to plant High Rock Church in 2008. Church planting in university cities is foundational to the church's past and to our plans for the future.
Our desire is to be a local church where people can learn about Jesus in a way that deeply impacts and changes their lives. At High Rock, we are centered on Jesus, and hold to the truths of the Bible passionately. Our vision is to be a church that makes disciples and plants many more healthy local churches in university cities.
