Rooted: A Conference of Grace, Rest, and Gospel-Centeredness

The Rooted conference is one that even we Rooted employees look forward to. It doesn’t feel like work. Why? Because we get to sit in the pews with an exceptional group of student leaders and have the gospel poured into us by both speakers and our fellow attendees. We make new friends, we learn, and we shed the crushing weight of the pressure we’ve placed on our own shoulders in both the home and in our ministry work. At Rooted, we are reminded of the one who’s already accomplished everything that needs doing.

If you’re looking for a conference that tells you all of the things you “should” be doing in your ministry, you won’t find that at Rooted. If you’re looking to be inspired by a self-salvation type of Christianity, you won’t find that either. You will, however, find rest for your weary and striving soul. You will meet other student leaders who are also in the trenches, exhausted, and desperately in need of the relief and freedom that only the gospel of Jesus Christ can truly offer.
