You see, Rocky came to know the Lord after a life of living on the streets (you can access his autobiography and testimony [or] from www.youthofamerica.com) and when he left that for Jesus in the mid-90’s he spent the better part of his time up to this point trying to find the Body of Christ. No matter where he turned however, he kept coming across a church that is sadly more concerned with the dollar bill and the good-life. Those who were adhering to the straight-forward Word of God were no where to be found. Then over the past two years it also came to light that a man had stolen parts of Rocky’s own life story to live for Jesus. This “imposter” was using parts of Rocky’s testimony as his own and was making tons of money for various Christian ministries who backed him and profited off of the interest in his speaking appearances, tapes, and articles, etc. telling a compelling story that actually belonged to another man. When Rocky contacted these ministries about the conflict and reasoned with them about halting their endorsements and advertisements related with all of this until the matter could be settled he met with indifference. They were not interested in the truth of whose life story it actually was so much as they were concerned with the money they would lose if they pulled back from their marketing of this mans story. It mattered not to them if they hurt another ministry in the process.
Well if you are interested in knowing more about all of this just access Rocky’s site and you can find it all there. It was really great to be able to get to know Rocky, his wife Denise, and daughter Julianne. We also got to meet David, Elijah, and Nikki, three young people who are a part of Rocky’s program. They are also his assistants with the Youth of America. David is a top notch audio tech. And Elijah handles all of the video. They both work with Rocky to maintain their various internet projects. These are very talented kids who came from the streets. What they have learned working with Rocky is really incredible.
Some time within the next two months we are going to meet back up with Rocky and do some projects with them. Jack and I will be participating in doing some live video in the field dealing with some of the serious issues about how the Church here in America has lost it’s way . We’ll be going right to the source and broadcasting live via the net. As more of our plans are confirmed, I’ll keep all of you up to date. We are really looking forward to it. I would ask all of you to keep us and the Rock with his family and kids in your prayers.
God Bless and God Speed,
Sean and Jack
