The Recreational Outreach Center (The ROC) opened in April of 2012 as a tool to be used for our youth and our community. Far from what began as a concept of a 10,000 square foot pole barn-style building, the ROC ultimately grew to a brick structure with a finished size of 16,000 square feet. Valued at over $1.7 million, the building includes a gym featuring a full-size basketball court, an activity room with large-screen video monitors, a kitchen, and a room designed for use as a state-of-the-art computer lab.
The building is the first to be built on 45 acres of property purchased by the church for future development. Gary Nesbitt, a Mason First Nazarene member for 55 years, served on the building committee that oversaw the design and construction of the new building. “Our desire from the very beginning was to build a structure that could be used by the youth of our church and community,” Nesbitt explained. “The youth of any organization or community represent the future, and I believe that we have been successful in creating a building that will inspire our youth.”
