Global Missions


Reaching the two billion people who have never heard the Gospel.
Our Strategic Priorities:

1. People with least access to the Gospel
2. The poorest of the poor
3. The most vulnerable and the exploited
4. Local university students and children/families at risk within our community

Missions Commitment

 Missions at Black Rock is rooted in our calling in Matthew 28:19 to “Go and make disciples.” We understand this as Jesus’ command to us. We encourage you to engage in this calling by making a Missions Commitment.

A Missions Commitment is made up of three parts:

Praying, Giving, & Going.

GO mobilizes, equips and sends healthy disciple-makers to reach out to the Arab World through media, Biblical training and relational encouragement. Today, more than 380 people are involved in a wide variety of church planting activities among Arab world people. The social unrest in parts of the Arab region coupled with the impact of Christian media in the region is providing much greater opportunities for the gospel.

IJM (International Justice Mission)

International Justice Mission (IJM) partners with local authorities to rescue victims of violence, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors, and strengthen justice systems around the world. You help us directly support IJM’s efforts to rescue children from child slavery on Lake Volta in Ghana.  Once exploited, these children are now on course for healing, education and, hopefully, reconnecting with their families and communities.

Urban Impact

URBAN IMPACT serves the families of the PT Barnum Community in Bridgeport, CT offering youth from the public housing complex educational opportunities through ‘in-school’ & ‘after-school’ activities. These include one-on-one and small group tutoring and mentoring with the purpose of helping youth achieve academic success, develop positive character traits and lead a fulfilling life. 

Brought together by a Black Rock mission trip, a group of strangers from southern Connecticut traveled to New Orleans to serve those impacted by Hurricane Katrina.  A bond formed among those volunteers during that trip. The group questioned the need to travel across the country when a nearly identical need existed less than five miles from the church.  To answer this call, Urban Impact of Black Rock was created to target this local area in great need of God’s attention and love.
