The Rock Foundation is a charitable organisation that displays the Love of God in the modern world.
The main goal of The Rock Foundation is to make the world brighter through Jesus Christ, which represents the fundament on which we are built.
The Rock Foundation is founded by two young men and best friends, Junior Kwame Boakye Agyeman and Emmanuel Owusu Annim. They both live in Amsterdam. In early April 2018, the two friends went outside with a group to evangelise. As they were evangelising, they strongly felt something was missing.
‘Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.‘ – James 2:17-18
Therefore, they initiated the idea of starting a charity foundation. Their idea was quickly linked to their biggest passion, the love of God. They were driven by their passion to influence the world with the Good News, the Gospel, which is centred on the love of God.
Whilst thinking about starting the charitable organization, they wanted to find a name that represents their faith. One of the founders, Junior Kwame, took this into prayer and sought the Lord Jesus. By doing so, he received a name for the organisation, ‘The Rock Foundation”.
The Mission of The Rock Foundation is to create awareness for the poor. The Gospel is not only in prayer and spending time in the church, but it is also in feeding and clothing the poor. The Rock Foundation was established in the year 2018 and went online on public platforms in January 2019. Their plan is to start in the Netherlands and in due time expand to other parts of the world to solve both heals as poverty issues.
“Most of the time, when we evangelise to the less privileged, it feels like we just talk to them and go. The only thing they end up staying with are nice words. That is what motivated me to go beyond that standard. As christians, we must be capable of taking care of people who are in need. This we can accomplish by giving them substance, feeding them, clothing them and supporting them.”– Junior Kwame Boakye Agyeman, founder of The Rock Foundation.
“My Father always taught me that it is important to put the things we read into practise. The word of God tells us a lot. I believe it is time for us to stand up as the followers of Christ and bring those quickening words into action. It was when Jesus performed miracles that the people saw that He indeed was the Son of God. They noticed it after He did. With our focus being on giving them substance, feeding them, clothing them and supporting them, I strongly believe that there shall be a change in the Netherlands and throughout Europe” – Emmanuel Owusu Annim, co-founder of The Rock Foundation.
