How did Microsites get started?
The Rock hosted a community outreach event downtown for Good Friday in 2013. About 5,000 people came out to hear the gospel and receive physical aid in a variety of ways. Two days later we hosted the very first Microsites for Easter — 3 services at 3 different sites and we haven’t stopped since.
Can anyone attend a Microsite? Where can I can I find site information?
Almost all sites are “open gatherings” that anyone is welcome to attend. There are a few sites that are “closed gatherings” that meet in facilities that are tethered to programs where people cannot leave to attend a church, so we bring it to them, for that reason those are closed.

What service times are the Microsites?
Microsites livestream the Rock Church services. Each microsite runs at one of the church’s service times. There are Microsites happening at every service all over the city: 8AM, 10AM, 12PM, 6PM. Click on any microsite listed to view details.
What can I expect at a Microsite?
You should expect an authentic worship experience, one that you can participate in with those who attend. You should expect an opportunity to minister to people, encourage, and pray. You should expect to be utilized as an essential function of the team both during the week and on Sundays.
How can I join the movement and volunteer?
First step is two—fold, attend a microsite to get the full experience. Take the 3-part Microsite Orientation class that will occur every month.
How are new sites launched?
New sites are formed after a team is established, although there are exceptions to the rule. Microsites are about relationships, this begins with the team, its the most essential part of starting a new site. Together the team will journey through praying for provision, searching for a site, preparing for a launch, and finally facilitating a microsite.
Can Microsites happen outside of San Diego?
The answer is neither yes or not, it is decided on case by case.
