Life is busy, making it hard to spend time in the Word

We understand how discouraging it can be. Despite our best intentions, it can be difficult to build and maintain Bible study and prayer habits. Often these are put off when life is busy.

Water from Rock is a teaching ministry that delivers encouragement from God’s Word through email, audio, and daily devotional books.

We make it easier to focus our minds and hearts on God.

“It has been said that Christianity is one beggar telling another beggar where he found bread. I thank God every day for the privilege and delight of telling others the Good News of Jesus Christ. My desire is for people who struggle, doubt, fear and question, to experience the joy and peace there is in knowing Christ. I am a fellow traveler hoping for others to join me on the way!”

About Our Name

You will bring water from rock for the community
Numbers 20:8

We take our name from the Bible’s story of the Exodus journey during which the people of God came to a place in the desert wilderness where there was no water.
