Our Focus
on Students

The Students of 21st Century America…

face greater challenges, and have greater opportunities, than any previous generation. We believe that in the last days outpouring of the Spirit, “your sons and daughters shall prophesy” (Acts 2:17).  However, every Timothy needs a Paul to equip him to know how to use their spiritual gifts to advance the Kingdom. Our youth need to be discipled.  
We are committed to helping students find their way into the last days’ Rising Movement. In today’s pornified society, we need to start by equipping our youth to live free from sexual exploitation and sin. 

The Rising Church is especially committed to working with students and young adults, starting with Azusa Pacific University, Citrus College, and local High Schools, including Middle Schools and Elementary students. Like Moses, Rick and Sue are calling the Joshua Generation to “be strong and courageous, for you will lead your people into the land which the Lord has promised” (Deut 31:7).

Do You Want to Go?

Rick is an official “Send Rep” promoting The Send event in Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City scheduled for Saturday, June 12, 2021. Rick is PRAYING for a huge impact, SHARING the Send through social media and BRINGING friends, family and radical disciples with him to the event. For more information, or to sign up, go to www.thesend.org. 

Our goal is to lead a team to The Send in June and then bring them back to help launch new youth groups when we open our Hub Church in September. Do you want to go? 

Like Paul when he came to Ephesus, Rick and Sue (and the leadership team) encourage every disciple to “reason daily” from the Scriptures through the RISE Discipleship Training. A discipleship multiplication movement will result! “This took place for two years, so that all who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord” (Acts 19:9-10). 

Join the New Army

We believe a young army is rising up to lead discipleship multiplication movements around the world! There is no greater cause than completing the Great Commission in our lifetime. 

Get ready, get equipped and get going!
