October Convention

  • Rock Church International 640 Kempsville Rd Virginia Beach (map)

With October quickly approaching, we want to give you updated information on this year’s ARISE 2019 anniversary conference. We are so excited to be able to host Pastor Hank Kunneman, PASTORS Steve & Kathy Gray, and PASTORS Myles & Delana Rutherford Along with special music by The Katinas on Sunday night!

We will be having services Sunday at 10 AM and 6 PM, Monday through Wednesday at 7 PM in the main sanctuary, and Tuesday and Wednesday morning at 10 AM in the Planet Rock narthex.

Please join us for a leaders gathering every evening in the ministers lounge starting 30 minutes prior to each service starting Sunday night. This is for RMF leaders and their spouses to come and be able to spend time together and prepare for the evening service. There will be light finger foods and drinks available. There will also be a time of food and fellowship following the evening services Monday through Wednesday in the Planet Rock narthex. Please contact the RMF office to confirm your attendance and the attendance of any of your leaders that will be attending these functions with you. Please note, the leaders fellowship prior to the evening services is for PASTORS and their spouses only! The fellowship time after the service is open to your church and ministry leadership also. Please let us know as early as possible prior to the conference how many will be in attendance at our fellowship times!
