Hi, we are Bruce and Lynda Morock. We came to Southside Community Church in 1983 as teachers at Southside Christian School.
In 1989 (May) we began our missionary journey interning with a Mexican (AMF) pastor in southern Idaho as we served the Hispanic church and community. In 1991 we crossed the border into Mexico and served, for the most part, until 2018.
I say ‘for the most part’ because in 2005 we came “home” to serve as director for Cocolalla Lake Bible Camp until 2011. In 2011 we returned to Mexico.
Returning from Mexico in 2018 we joined up with Village Missions and currently serve them as pastor/missionary in a central California rural church. May 2021 will mark the 32nd year we have served as missionaries under the Southside Community Church banner.

We serve with Cru Lifelines. Cru is formerly Campus Crusade for Christ, and Lifelines is the outdoor ministry branch of Cru. So with that, we serve in Bend, Oregon doing campus outreach and discipleship with the two local campuses in Bend, helping students to grow in their faith or even hear about Jesus for the first time.
We also lead various Christ-centered outdoor trips for colleges all across the Pacific Northwest, helping students to grow in faith, character, and leadership. It is the mission that God has put on our hearts to bring people to Jesus both on college campuses and in the amazing outdoors that He created!
