Meet Rolling Hills Community Church:

In the fall of 2002 when our God called out a few to plant what is now “Rolling Hills Community Church.” With a core team of 15 people, we began to gather in the Alara Farms apartment clubhouse on Thursday nights to study God’s Word and to talk about what church should be in our day and in our generation. During those first three months, God began to bring people to join in His calling and mission. In January of 2003, Rolling Hills Community Church was officially launched and met on Sunday mornings at the Marriott Hotel in Cool Springs.  We then moved to Thoroughbred Theater for 5 years in which they set up every week as a mobile church. During this time God blessed and grew the church.   

In October of 2007, God called us to take a one-time offering for a place He would show us. We did not know where He was calling us, we just knew we were out-growing the theater and God was calling us to a new chapter in the journey. On that one Sunday, this young church, the average age of 28, gave over one million dollars. After we stepped out in faith, God revealed this amazing place, “The WareHouse” – a place beyond our Wildest Dreams – over 146,000 sq. feet, complete with three tenants to help offset our payments, sitting on 12.5 acres of prime real estate in the middle of our community. While the building is not the vision, it truly is an incredible tool to share the love and the grace of Christ with our community and our world!  On October 11, 2009, we celebrated our first worship time in our new church home here at the WareHouse. 

Since that time we have added our Nashville,  Nolensville, and Cambodia Campuses. We have also created an engaging online environment streamed from our Franklin Campus.  Today, God is more at work than ever before. He is calling us to “reach out, grow up, and give all” for His Name and His glory in our community. Our mission at Rolling Hills has always been to bring glory to God by reaching people for Christ and nurturing them in the faith through inspired worship, genuine community, and passionate ministry that transforms lives in our neighborhoods and throughout the world..

“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21
