Pastor David Chisholm

Welcome! Thank you for visiting The ROCK.
In 1994, the Lord Jesus Christ spoke through His Holy Spirit to me concerning a new church plant in the Parkersburg River Valley. After many years of prayer, the Lord confirmed to me that the timing was the summer of 2000. I questioned the Lord concerning this apostolic commission and I heard the voice of the Lord tell me, “It is time for a move of God in Parkersburg.” Praise God, we have been experiencing just that over the past years. Kyong and I are so thankful for so many faithful servants and we are excited about what the Lord has planned in the upcoming years.

Upon graduating from Calvary Cathedral Bible School in Fort Worth, TX, I soon returned to my hometown in Jackson, Ohio to plant New Christian Worship Center in 1984. This was the beginning of many exciting years and church plants to come as we began laboring to build the house of the Lord.

Pastor Dave – Guest on DayStar’s “Tri-State Celebration” Sharing His Testimony

Today we have (6) locations in The ROCK Family Worship Center network. As we believe that God has divinely appointed this time for revival to break forth in the Mid-Ohio Valley, we invite you to come and join our family in worship. We will by the grace of God prepare our generation not only for the return of the Lord Jesus but also to occupy until He returns.

If you are seeking to find everything which God has for you, we would love to serve you and your family here at The ROCK. You will enjoy an awesome worship experience and dynamic, life changing teaching of the character and nature of Christ for your life. Hope to see you soon.

In Christ’s Service,

Consumer Christian?

Consumer Christian?

By Pastor Dave Chisholm   Consumer Christians…. In helping us to understand the Kingdom of God Jesus spoke in many parables. A parable is simply a story that helps us relate to a principle and a principle is a law of the government of the universe we live in. Matthew 9:35-11:1 “Then Jesus went about…

Have you been measured lately?

“Humility is not measured by how you treat someone over you; it’s how you treat someone under you.” When you are given authority in the worlds’ system it’s almost expected to take on an air of supremacy and to disassociate with those under you. An example of this would be the military chain of command….

(based on feeling, tastes or opinions) Today our culture stands as Pilate at the condemnation of Christ and again scoffs, “What is truth?” (John…
