We Believe in Transformation
Through a Christ-centered Life People can be Transformed. Lives can be saved.
WHO WE ARE
The Rock Ministries is a 501(c)3 non-profit Christian organization dedicated to transforming and saving lives.
Each one of us at The Rock Ministries had difficult pasts – some were drug addicts, some were homeless, some have served prison sentences, some were alcoholics. But we all had one thing in common, we lived in the darkness without hope. But all that changed. Each of us has been given new life through the power and grace of Jesus Christ and we have been transformed. We are saved.
We live and work on the streets of Denver and are committed to bringing hope and the offer of a new life to those in need.

We provide a free 6-month recovery program to combat addiction in any form.
A recent study by WalletHub found Colorado ranked No. 9 in the country for highest drug use and No. 3 in the country for the highest percentage of adults who need drug treatment but aren’t getting it. In 2017 alone, 959 people died in Colorado from drug poisoning. It is estimated that more people in Colorado die from substance abuse than die in car accidents every year.
Everyday in America over 6,500 people are hospitalized substance abuse. Every day over 300 people die as the result of drug or alcohol abuse. That’s someone’s father, mother, sister or brother. Families are destroyed. Lives are lost.
At The Rock Ministries, we believe people can be transformed. We believe lives can be saved through spiritual healing and the grace of Jesus Christ.
We offer an in-residence rehabilitation program designed to provide the community, hope, and healing through the development of a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We believe God is waiting to help you – all you have to do is show up.

— Our Story
Jesus Gallegos, our founder, began his journey with addiction as a young man in California. He spent many years in prison for drug and gang related crimes. Eventually, he found himself in in San Antonio, TX. While there, the untimely death of his youngest sister from cancer convinced Jesus that he had reached a point of no return. He credits a faith-based men’s home with saving his life. After many years of study and training, Jesus feels God has directed him to Denver where he founded The Rock Ministries and continues the work of saving lives.
