Our Pastor

Lead Pastor - David Wilson

David and Rachel Wilson met at a Christian Summer camp called Lone Tree Ranch in New Mexico. As they ministered to students they developed a greater desire to more deeply invest in the lives of people they served. They transitioned to youth ministry for nearly a decade in New Mexico and Texas. 

They have two children, Avelyn and Asher. They enjoy time spent outdoors on hikes and the beach, cooking (especially BBQ), watching basketball, and going to the movies. They love to travel to visit family experiencing new places and new food!

David desires to see people experience life transformation as they develop and grow in their relationship with Jesus. One of his greatest joys is to see that spiritual transformation turn into an investment in the lives of others. This is the process of discipleship that echos Paul’s method: “Follow me as I follow Christ.” Discipleship is all about relationships, and that is reflected in Church On The Rock’s mission statement: “Love God and others, become and make disciples.”

 “I think the most important aspect of faith in Christ is growth in Him. The route to a deeper relationship with Jesus can be found through the spiritual disciplines...the more we practice them, the more of His presence and empowering Spirit we’ll discover. I want COTR to be a place filled with the Spirit and directed towards building relationships. Our ministries share this emphasis. Our goal is to be a community filled with love for God and others."
