Our Purpose

We offer life-changing apprenticeships for young men overcoming adversity. At Rockside, they have an opportunity to experience God away from the distractions and draws of modern life. While they are here, they improve their work ethic, develop personal and professional life skills, practice loving God and loving others, and learn how to lead themselves and others.

We are not a rehab or a clinical program, we are a stepping stone for young men who are ready to leave behind a destructive past and make positive, lasting life change. Read More
