The Rock Church with Miles McPherson

The Rock Church led by Pastor Miles McPherson is committed to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.

About Miles McPherson

Pastor Miles McPherson played four years in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers from 1982-1985. It was during this time that he developed a cocaine addiction that found the NFL star reduced to regularly visiting the seedy neighborhoods of San Diego to feed his habit.

After his second season in the NFL and after a weekend-long drug binge, he called out to Jesus Christ, accepted Him and stopped doing drugs in one day.

Miles worked as a Youth Pastor for Horizon Christian Fellowship in San Diego and enrolled in Azusa Pacific University’s School of Theology, receiving his Master’s of Divinity degree in 1991.

In 2000, he felt called by God to start the Rock Church in San Diego. According to Outreach Magazine, the Rock has consistently been one of the nation’s fastest growing and largest churches, with nearly 15,000 people attending one of the Rock’s fifteen Sunday services, in addition to the services that are experienced through online streaming, microsites, radio and TV.
