Our Story

Pleasant View Baptist ChurchRock Point ChurchSmall Church USA

The Challenge

After decades of gradual decline, Pleasant View Baptist Church was left with only a faithful remnant of twenty senior adults. As the church continued to struggle, it gradually became unhealthy, inwardly focused, outdated, lifeless and in danger of closing its doors for good. The challenge of attempting revitalization seemed virtually hopeless, but this small dedicated group did not want God’s church to dissolve. They believed there was still hope.

The Change

With the assistance of a “mothering church,” Terry Thompson was selected to be the new lead pastor and things began to change. The church was in desperate need of a clear mission and new vision. The revitalization overhaul began with a commitment to biblical teaching and a willingness of the church family to work hard and accept needed change. With a fresh outlook and much effort, God blessed and the church began its journey to renewed health and growth.

The Celebration

Over the next 10 years, Pleasant View Baptist Church experienced the favor of God. The church regained its health and began to grow. By 2008 the church was running three morning services, with the existing building and property at maximum capacity. The decision was made to relocate and build a new ministry facility. The name was also changed at that time to Rock Point Church. Once in the new building, attendance doubled in size as God continued to work.

The Commitment

Rock Point Church has come a long way in the past 20+ years. Their vision is now to be a healthy church that assists in multiplying healthy churches. One of Rock Point’s initiatives today is to partner with Small Church USA as they fulfill the mission of encouraging and strengthing pastors, pastors’ wives and churches to revitalized health. Rock Point believes this is a partnership that will greatly impact the kingdom of Jesus Christ. It’s also an opportunity to repay the kindness shown to them in 1998. Paying it forward!

"In my experience of working with tens of thousands of leaders, two things are essential . . . credibility and influence. Terry Thompson is one of the rare leaders that I know who has mastered both! Terry is a man of great wisdom and experience, his ability to see to the heart of an issue and facilitate effective solutions is uncommon and elite. Terry is a world class communicator, teacher, and advisor. He is a leader of leaders and shepherd of shepherds. I have worked with Terry as an advisor, peer, and friend and have seen first-hand the dramatic impact he has on the lives and leadership of others. "
Lyle Wells
President-Integrus Leadership
"I served on Terry’s staff/team for the first five years of my ministry. Terry is the best leader I have ever worked with or been around; but more than that, he is the best developer of leaders I have ever seen. It's one thing to lead a church well, it's another thing to help other men lead and serve their churches well. Terry will sharpen you like no one else, so you can effectively steward the ministry the Lord has called you to lead."
Brock Graham
Lead Pastor, Redeemer Bible Church, Indianapolis, IN
"I have known Pastor Terry Thompson for almost 20 years. I have witnessed first-hand how God has used his leadership to stabilize, grow and positively impact his church and also ministries outside of his church, including two of my football teams. The ministries he has been involved with have both flourished and have stood the test of time. Terry is a man of wisdom coupled with years of experiences. He would undoubtedly bring value to pastors or ministry teams who are wanting and/or needing to develop as leaders."
Chris Creighton
Head football coach, Eastern Michigan University
"As a person who has led two church planting organizations over the last 18 years, I have learned much about the qualities necessary to excel as a church planter, lead pastor and servant leader. It is not hyperbole to say that Terry Thompson has excelled in all categories. His increasingly rare combination of strong leadership, combined with genuine pastoral care, has resulted in Rock Point Church flourishing over the years. Under his ministry many leaders have also been developed and sent into high-capacity leadership ministry roles. I highly recommend Terry as a pastor leader and coach." "
Kent Shaw
Brave Global Church Planting Network, Executive Director
"I have had the privilege of knowing Terry Thompson for several decades and have watched the Lord bless his ministry in marvelous ways. Terry is a passionate, seasoned practitioner. I heartily recommend his ministry and believe he will be a helpful encouragement to all who seek his advice and counsel."
Dr. Steve Viars
Lead Pastor, Faith Church, Lafayette, IN
"I am thrilled to see a ministry like Small Church USA arrive on the scene to meet many important needs in our churches! I believe that under Pastor Terry Thompson's leadership it will have a great impact. I have known Terry for 30 years. In those years I have observed that everything he has given his heart to, as he serves Jesus Christ, has flourished immensely! God has given him the ability to assess a situation and accomplish the task with great vision. I expect Small Church USA to meet a critical need of reviving smaller churches. I believe they will set a template for hope and health for churches all over the USA!"
