Let your roots grow down into Him,
let your lives be built on Him. 
—Colossians 2:7 

Rooted is a program for those who desire a deep and transformative connection with Jesus Christ, fostered within the safety of meaningful community.

Join us for a 10 month journey of spiritual formation that is designed for anyone who is seeking greater spiritual maturity in Christ. This program provides the flexibility you need to participate in a way that fits the uniqueness of your life and schedule.

This program has stripped away what has been stealing my life and provided me with ways to rebuild my life. The way I can say it best is that it is creating an entire new lens of how to see the world, how to see God, and how to see myself. I have needed this for a long time.

—Kimberly, Rooted Participant

The daily component will help you be intentional about connecting with the Lord and the content on a daily basis.

You'll also do right-brain, experiential exercises together that will position you to grow in new and rich ways.

Curriculum Overview


God desires to do a great awakening in you. God's ongoing work of awakening is a ministry of the Holy Spirit that allows you to come alive in new ways. God is not hesitant to give; He gives freely. As you are continually awakened more and more, you can experience God's Kingdom movement in your life, awakening to...

  • The God who created you: to the God of love, to the fullness of Christ

  • Your true self as defined by Christ: to the image of God in you and others, to all that is true in you because of the work of Christ

  • The Kingdom of God: to the Spirit so you can see the Kingdom, to God in the present moment, to the movement of Christ in community


The call to abiding is relational, not transactional. Relationships grow when those in the relationship spend time together. A person grows closer to a spouse, child, friend, etc. by sharing life experiences with them. The same is true in regards to abiding in Christ. You grow in Christ as you come to know Him (2 Peter 1). You position yourself for relationship with Him by being intentional about abiding in Him, abiding in His...

  • Presence

  • Provision

  • Protection

  • Purpose

  • Power


Anointing is built on a foundation of abiding. As you abide, you an increasingly live into God's anointing on your life. God's anointing is a special endowment of the presence of the Holy Spirit on your life so that you can experience greater intimacy and union with Him and accomplish the Kingdom work that He has assigned to you. Anointing is an essential element of spiritual maturity that impacts your...

  • Inward journey of transformation

  • Upward journey of union and intimacy with God

  • Outward journey with the Body of Christ

  • Forward journey accomplishing the unique Kingdom work God has assigned to you


You are seated with Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6)! One thing that the New Testament makes clear here and elsewhere is that, as a follower of Jesus, you are equipped with great authority and power. The power that raised Jesus from the dead resides within you. As an ambassador of Christ, it is essential that you experience and minister out of that power and authority, remembering that...

  • Your authority rests 100% in Jesus: you don't have to try to make anything happen on your own

  • Jesus has given you authority to act in His name: as a police officer acts as an authority "in the name of the law," you have authority to act in the name of Jesus

  • You are to practice the authority of Christ with humility and responsibility: the authority and power of Christ should not be taken lightly; to follow Jesus' model is to move in authority with humility and responsibility

  • You can grow in confidence as you minister in Christ's power and authority: living and ministering in the authority of Jesus can be intimidating, especially early in the journey; seeking the Lord at work helps you have confidence that the power which raised Christ from the dead resides in you


God has a unique assignment for you! And...you can know what it is. God doesn't withhold or hide the plan He has for you in life and Kingdom ministry. He has already started the work and is inviting you to participate. This program will help you discover your unique assignment by investing in...

  • Vocation: In Christ, your vocation isn't your job or career; it is a summons to a new way of life, seen in the ancient prayer, "to know God more clearly, love God more dearly, to follow God more nearly."

  • Vision: Out of vocation comes vision, an emerging picture of a preferable future given by God. The vision God shows you will match your passions, gifts and circumstances.

  • Values: When you become aware of your vocation and vision, you can articulate the non-negotiable commitments by which you live your life. To see the vision of your life fulfilled, you must truly make these commitments non-negotiable.
