The Rock Solid program is an activity based program for school age boys focused on developing boys into men, recognising that masculinity is a set of values and life skills demonstrated by leadership, not dependent on age, physical strength or toughness.
o Faithfulness – to Jesus Christ and being a child of God
o Perseverance – commitment and loyalty to family, friends, God’s call, church and work, key verse: let us run the race with perseverance, Hebrews 12:1
o Respectfulness/Honour – respect for elders, parents, siblings, women and mates
o Servant hood – looking out for others and seeing our part in supporting others
o Humility – being content with who we are, and displaying meekness in a world which expects men to be boastful and outspoken, (as displayed by sports stars)
o Trust – integrity and honesty
o Self-control – developing the maturity and awareness to know when it is the right time or wrong time to act in a certain way
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” – Jesus, (Matthew 7:24-25).
