08/24/2015 - Rob at LifeLight

For the first time in his 14 year ministry, speaker Rob Roozeboom will take the stage during South Dakota’s LifeLight Festival on Friday, September 4. Roozeboom will speak on Main Stage at 9:00 PM in between Rend Collective and headliner Tenth Avenue North. 


“This is really a 10 year dream for me,” says Roozeboom. “I find it humbling that LifeLight would consider using me in the speaking capacity. It’s been fun building this relationship and partnering together to reach more people with the life-changing message of Jesus.”  


The LifeLight Festival, held annually over Labor Day weekend in Worthing, South Dakota, is the largest and most well-known aspect of LifeLight’s ministry. The mega event held on a 200 acre farm for three nights attracts over 200,000 people from around the United States and various other countries. It is provided free of admission allowing all to come and hear the good news of Jesus Christ without any financial barriers to attending the event. 


This year’s event features 5 stages and over 70 Christian bands spanning many genres.  Notable artists and speakers include Switchfoot, Matthew West, Colton Dixon, Tenth Avenue North, Rend Collective, LifeLight founder Alan Greene, and LifeLight’s Josh Brewer.

From July 28 through August 1, Rise on the Road served in Des Plaines, IL. The group consisted of over 30 adult and student participants. The group worked on 14 projects in different area trailor parks, served the homeless with two separate pizza parties, hosted a block party with a message from Rob, worship, and a performance by illusionist Joshua Jordan, and got a taste of life in Chicago by visiting Navy Pier.

Work projects and housing were provided by the Salvation Army in Des Plaines. Visit our Facebook page to see more pictures and videos from this great trip! Thank you to all participants, leaders, and those praying for this week. God moved in mighty ways and we are so happy to be part of His work. 

07/21/2015 - ROTR Dominican Republic

From July 5-13, a team of 19 took part in the 5th edition of Rise on the Road: Dominican Republic. Partnering once again with the Center for Transforming Missions in Santo Domingo, the group worked to pour concrete to create a hard surface playground for San Pablo Christian School. Later in the week, the team took part in an annual tradition, an outreach concert in the neighbordhood of Guaricanos. The concert featured local worship artists, illusionist Joshua Jordan, and a message from Sheldon First Reformed Youth Pastor, Justin Jenness. 

The week was full of hard work, site seeing, beach time, touring different ministries in Santo Domingo, great Dominican food, and lots of fun. RISE Ministries would like to thank this year's participants, donors, and friends and family who prayed the team through this trip. Watch the video below to catch a glimpse of the trip!
