Our mission is to minister to anyone who has experienced hitting "rock bottom" with the same love and compassion modeled by Jesus when He walked upon the earth.
We aspire to put our faith in action by serving those who are in need without regard to how they have fallen into their difficult circumstances. We meet the broken hearted right where they are and stand in the gap for those who have nowhere else to turn.
Whether you are in need of restoration from rock bottom or feel you have been called to serve others who have, we welcome you!
Rock Bottom Outreach is not a church, has no physical facility and relies solely on volunteers to carry out the work we are called to do in His name. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization. If you are similarly motivated to give back to God what He has so generously and mercifully provided you, come join us.
HANDS AND FEET
Rick Smith - Founder/Speaker
Rick Smith knows what it’s like to hit rock bottom. That’s why he started Rock Bottom Outreach. Rick also knows how it feels to appear to be on top of the world. He was a successful coach at the high school and club levels, winning two state championships.
He taught Sunday School, mentored youth, and was a church leader, missionary and staff member. But he also now knows all too well that the truth on the inside can contradict appearances on the outside.
Rick was addicted to prescription drugs for ten years. He neglected his wife. He battled depression. The cost: His marriage, his career, and almost cost him the lives of his children and himself. On August 16, 2008, Rick and his two sons in tow with him in the truck, Rick sideswiped an 18-wheeler. He lost visitation rights with his boys.
That was Rick’s rock bottom. But it also became the starting point for his climb to a renewed relationship with God. He is engaged and has a second chance with his sons, a career, restored health, and a passion to help others who have hit their own rock bottom.
Rick has been there – to the point where the only places left to go are out or up. Through Rock Bottom Outreach, he is helping those who have hit rock bottom find their way up.
