memoriamRocky Antinore was born on June 21st, 1969. It was as an adult that Rocky heard the Gospel and made Jesus the Lord of his life.  Rocky’s return to the Lord resulted in a radical life transformation.

In 2011, Rocky answered God’s call to go to Kosovo and share the love of Jesus with the Albanian people.  The Lord directed him to serve the city of Mitrovica where he quickly made many friends and began learning the Albanian culture and language.

Over the next 5 years, Rocky loved and served the people of Mitrovica. Following the example of Jesus, he literally poured his life into a small group of young men, teaching them, living with them, and showing them what it looks like to follow Jesus.

This past Saturday, August 27th, 2016, the Lord called Rocky home to heaven. He was serving others until the moment he saw Jesus.

Rocky, you finished well the race brother. We will miss you but we are celebrating that you are now in the presence of Jesus.

Following Rocky’s sudden passing away into eternity, many people have written touching messages on social networks to express their pain for the loss of their previous friend.
