mark your calendars: Feb 5-7 2021


To help plan, please come to ROCK meetings.  Schedule available by clicking TEAM on the right-hand side.  ALL ARE WELCOME!

ROCK is a powerful and fun-filled weekend in Ocean City, MD. The event allows youth and adults to take a step back from their busy lives and learn about the amazing love of Jesus Christ. It is an awesome experience for folks to more fully connect with God and their friends while listening to great bands and speakers. You will leave ROCK renewed and ready to spread the word about God’s great love for us.

ROCK is designed as a retreat with a focus on presenting the Gospel message in an exciting, culturally appropriate way for young people (and now adults, too) to be exposed to and have an opportunity to respond to an invitation to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

We are thrilled to announce the onstage line up for ROCK 2020!

The Baltimore-Washington Conference is committed to supporting the abundant health-mind, body and spirit-of young people. With your generous offering at ROCK, we will be able to expand suicide prevention and wellness resourcing for youth and those who love them. Many youth are afraid of acknowledging school, mental health, and life challenges. To reduce stigma and barriers, we are building online mental health resources on the following topics:

Anxiety | Body Image/Eating Disorders

Bullying | Depression | Relationships

Self Hurt | Social Media 

Substance Abuse |Suicide Prevention

Time/Stress Management

The following video highlights our ultimate hope for this work and our need for your continued support. If you wish to write a check, please make it payable to the Conference Treasurer. 


Sometimes we all need someone to talk with.  We hope you are able to share with your parents, teachers, youth leaders or pastors.  But if you don’t feel you can share with them, the ROCK Cares team is here to listen to you.  There are members of the ROCK Cares team in the prayer room throughout the weekend or look for someone with the ROCK Cares button on. They are here to listen to you and pray with you. You don’t need to be alone.  ROCK Cares for you!
