Multi-use Chapel and Auditorium Building
This building project will create a structure to be used for large gatherings of 800-1000 people, a facility that the Nakuru area does not currently have. The building will be used for many purposes including chapel and assemblies at the Tumaini school, an additional component for conferences held at the Tumaini Cottage and Conference Centre, and an available rental place for the community to hold weddings, meetings, revivals, or other gatherings. The facility will provide a source of income when it is rented by outside groups and will be useful for many purposes within the Tumaini ministries.

One major project ROCKbridge Ministries is currently working toward is the development of a Christian Mission Hospital in Nakuru. The hospital will be able to offer specialized services such as cancer treatment, dental care, and kidney dialysis that are currently unavailable in the Nakuru area. These services would make the facility complementary to, rather than a competing with, current hospitals in the city. The hospital will be run under Christian principles with the goal of never turning away someone who cannot afford care.
The plans for the Mission Hospital are already underway and land has been purchased for the site, but the huge tasks of acquiring enough funding and professionals to complete the project still lie ahead.

Youth Department Resource Center
Youth leaders in Nakuru currently do not have any sort of library they can use for their ministries. ROCKbridge is in the process of developing a much-needed resource center so that those involved in youth ministry will have a place to research for sermons and particular questions about culture or youth. An office space has already been provided to house the resource center, but there is still a need for a library of books, furniture, a computer, and a printer for youth leaders and workers to use.
Youth Retreat Center
ROCKbridge Youth Department has been blessed with a donation of land for the purposes of creating a youth camping facility. The plan for this land is to create a physical infrastructure for youth leaders to be able to run camps and retreats for the youth to attend––the first place of its kind in the Nakuru area. The Retreat Center will need to establish fencing, foundations to pitch tents, and some permanent structures such as a kitchen and bathrooms.
The Nakuru Hills Special School presents a valuable opportunity for involvement that ROCKbridge Ministries wishes to reach into. In many regions of Kenya, old tribal customs of abandoning children with disabilities still linger in the practices of the people. Operated by the Kenyan government, Nakuru Hills takes in children with any disability who have been abandoned or whose families have not had the resources to provide for them. ROCKbridge Ministries has a loose relationship of offering support to Nakuru Hills, but ROCKbridge has a need for human capital to reach a place where it can provide substantial assistance. If you are interested in helping us reach this goal, please contact Roger Wolff!
