People who impact the world for the better know that they are not perfect.

At Mt. Rose, we understand your spiritual knowledge isn’t “complete” – there are always gaps, biases, limitations and prejudices. None-the-less, God has called us to disciple the world and each ministry is dedicated to equipping you spiritually and mentally so that you can share the truth of the gospel.
