Rock City Church is a multi-campus church in Columbus, Ohio and surrounding areas. In 2010, pastors Chad and Katie Fisher had a big dream for God’s work in their city. Through their faithful leadership and the help of strategic partners, Rock City Church sees countless lives transformed in Jesus.
Like many young churches, Rock City Church congregated in a local high school for weekly services. This setup gave them resources to invest heavily in their community:

After working with dozens of churches like Rock City Church, Ministry Solutions had the expertise and experience needed to help this congregation find and fund the right building project.
The Ministry Solutions team worked with Rock City Church to walk through a simple project process:
Today, Rock City Church thrives in Columbus and the surrounding areas. With a thriving broadcast campus, they have a state-of-the-art facility to project sermons to four additional campuses. Their new space also led to a significant increase in family ministry.
Like every project, the Ministry Solutions team worked to develop the right plan for Rock City Church. Since they have a big heart for the community, the new facility includes green space for food trucks. This and other building elements have made this facility a popular place for corporate events, community events, and weddings. Rock City Church has experienced sustained growth of 40% and are looking to launch two additional campuses.
