Danny J. Lorentzen

Senior Pastor

I didn’t grow up in church. I am what I am by the grace of God, the founder and Senior Pastor of The Rock Church of the Quad Cities, since Father’s Day 2002. My primary passions are to be a tender warrior for the Kingdom of God, to influence multitudes for eternity by pouring the love of Jesus into their lives, to create a “Safe House” (Church) where people can grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ and to burn for what I cannot lose all the days of my life. I have been pursuing these passions for over 35 years. Most of those years have been with my best friend, helpmate, and amazing wife Terri of over 35 years. She is my first priority, learning to love and cherish her as Christ loves and cherishes his church. I am passionate about her in every way.

  • I’m also passionate about the people God has called me to serve. I am committed to their lives being all that they can be as God’s children, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, relationally, and monetarily. I pray for them as often as I think of them, which is quite often, and I study incessantly to grow and learn in every area I believe will bless those I pastor.

  • I’m somewhat of an entrepreneur, I love to watch football (The Bears), I certainly enjoy being with my family.

    Terri Lorentzen

    Women's Pastor

    First and foremost I am Dan's wife. Secondly I'm the mother of two wonderful children and the grandmother of grandchilren. And, thirdly, I do some speaking and some mentoring at Rock Church. I have a passion for the word of God above everything else. Nothing is more exciting in my life than to watch people apply the word of God and see their lives change miraculously. I was raised in the church, however, about 10 years ago God gave us the miraculous revelation of his grace. That revelation has radically changed my life and now I am out to radically change the lives of other people. For too long religion has beat people down, beat people up, and caused so much failure in peoples lives. The Gospel of Grace is one of good news and it's very simple; Jesus paid the price for anything we have ever, or will ever commit.

    On a personal note there's nothing I love more than spending time with my family, camping, shopping, and of course football! Roll Tide! Go Bears!

    D'Ann Lorentzen

    Children's Director

    I have been a part of Rock Church since almost the very beginning. I felt like Rock Church was home the first time I walked in the doors. I also rededicated my life to Jesus the first year at the Rock. Kids Ministry has always been a passion of mine when I decided not to become an elementary education teacher. There is something about Kids faith that is so amazing. They have faith like a mustard seed and let it grow like a bean stock.

    Worship Leader

    Tifani Gocmen

    I am a founding member of Rock Church and have been leading worship since I was 19 years old. Through many trials and victories, God has brought me to a deeper place when it comes to understanding the importance of true worship. If you know me, you have probably heard me say that worship changed my life, and worship changes everything. Regardless of our circumstances, when we worship it sets our hearts where they should be - in complete dependency on God, worshiping and bringing honor to Him, and being overwhelmed with thankfulness for all that He has done. A vital part of worship is of course gathering with the church body on Sunday mornings with singing and instruments. We strive to create an atmosphere where the presence of God cannot be denied. But our truest worship is walked out in our day to day lives, choosing surrender and God's word as truth no matter what.
