Miles McPherson

Pastor Miles McPherson played four years in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers from 1982-1985. It was during this time that he developed a cocaine addiction that found the NFL star reduced to regularly visiting the seedy neighborhoods of San Diego to feed his habit.

In his second season in the NFL and after a weekend-long drug binge, he called out to Jesus Christ, accepted Him and stopped doing drugs in one day. Miles worked as a Youth Pastor for Horizon Christian Fellowship in San Diego and enrolled in Azusa Pacific University?s School of Theology receiving his Master?s of Divinity degree in 1991.

In 2000, he felt called by God to start the Rock Church in San Diego. According to Outreach Magazine, the Rock has consistently been one of the nation?s largest churches with over 18,000 people attending one of the Rock?s twenty-one Sunday services or experiencing the services through online streaming, and microsites. 4 years ago, Pastor Miles initiated Do Something Church; dedicated to equipping churches to transform the world by successfully meeting their community?s needs through innovative outreach strategies.

His book, "Do Something: Make Your Life Count" is designed to equip people to take Christ?s love to the streets and make a difference in their community. His latest book, "God in the Mirror" takes readers on an exploration of the scripture, ?made in God?s image? and offers them a new and revolutionary view of God and themselves.

In 2015, his team discovered an opportunity to reach thousands of people through online gospel presentations. As of December 2016, they have had 53 million people view a gospel presentation from the Rock online, resulting in 695,654 people responding that they prayed to receive Christ!
