Official RSOM Covid-19 Statement

Here's a word from our director regarding the Covid-19 pandemic and our plan for school moving forward

Due to the nature of the world we are all currently living in the Rock Church and RSOM leadership are paying close attention to all guidelines as they are released by the Governor and the California Department of Public Health related to COVID-19. We will continue to make decisions based on these guidelines and the local recommendations from the San Diego County Health Office.

As Rock Church continues with a phased reopening of church buildings over the coming weeks RSOM anticipates beginning our Fall Semester on August 17th onsite at our City Heights campus location. We will also continue to provide online learning options for any student unable to attend in person classes due to COVID-19 conditions.

We will continue to update this page as well as provide communication to all of our current students as well as potential students regarding the details of our plans to operate safely under all State and County guidelines. As you all know there are many things unknown to us at this time, however we are doing everything we can, and will continue to make any necessary adjustments to ensure the safety of each of our students while remaining committed to provide our ministry training with excellence.

Director and Pastor of Rock School of Ministry
