This site is designed to get you acquainted with our church, its ministries, and its people; but most importantly it is intended to be an extension of the invitation that Jesus has already made to you in Matthew 11:28-29, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me…and ye shall find rest unto your souls. We hope that the information you find here helps you know who we are and what we’re about, and how you can get connected. “
Brent and Patricia Endris
Bishop & First Lady
The Rock Church was founded by Bishop Brent Endris on September 10, 1989 in East Chicago, Indiana. The first services were held at Salvation Army where Bishop Endris was the preacher, the song leader, and the transportation. He was committed to a vision for this church and to the people who relied upon him to guide their spiritual growth. Because of the sacrifices made by Bishop Endris, his wife, and children, the church was blessed with growth causing the church to establish a home of its own in Griffith in 1995.
With a permanent home, the church was able to add a Christian school for grades K-12. Through weekly chapel services and special services designed specifically for families, many lives were changed. Because of the work of the church and the school many people, young and old, were able to experience the power of God for themselves.
Once again, God provided the increase, forcing the church to rent larger facilities until a new home could be found. On May 10, 2002, the church took ownership of the former Black Oak Elementary School at 5400 W 29th Ave, Gary. The stage now was set for revival. Immediately, Bishop Endris added a daycare, hosted special services, and coordinated personal bible studies for the masses of people who were hungry for the Word of God. In a time span of four and a half years, hundreds of people had received the Holy Ghost and were baptized in the name of Jesus. The impact of The Rock Church has been experienced by people living in the northern suburbs of Chicago to Iowa to Michigan.
The burden of Bishop Brent Endris could not be contained to a single church. In fulfillment of his calling, he has started a church in Tempe, Arizona. Solid Rock Church of Arizona does business as Rock of All Nations founded, and incorporated in September 2006.
