About the Instructor

Jim Cobrae

Jim Cobrae preached the gospel for over forty years. Along with his wife Deborah, he was the founding pastor of the Rock Church and World Outreach Center located in San Bernardino, California, one of the largest congregations in the United States and the second-highest attended church in California. Jim was known for his direct approach to the Word of God and his humorous insights into everyday life. He had a passion for soul-winning and discipleship and saw hundreds of thousands of people give their lives to Christ over thirty years since the Rock Church began in 1988, growing from 12 people to 24,000 members.

For years he and Deborah took no salary from the church, choosing instead to labor in real estate for financial support. His love for people and commitment to demonstrating the goodness of God has seen the church become a world outreach center locally and globally. In his book, Followship: Pastoring in His Presence, where he shares what it takes to get into the Lord’s Presence, and how it changed the way he pastored and caused miraculous growth at the Rock. His son-in-law, Dan Roth serves as Senior Pastor. He went to be with the Lord on March 17, 2024.
