Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I get access to the training and curriculum?
If you purchase the basic plan, you get access to one curriculum package for life. But, you will have to purchase additional packages to add content to your library.
The standard and premium plans renew automatically every year, but you can cancel anytime.
With each renewal of the standard plan, you will get access to one additional curriculum package of your choosing each year. So your library will continue to expand and grow, and you will have continuous access to the training videos, illustrations bank and community forum.
With each renewal of the premium plan, new content will continue to be added to your library throughout the year. So your library will continue to expand and grow, and you will have continuous access to the training videos, illustrations bank and community forum.
If you choose to cancel your renewal, you will still be granted access to the curriculum packages you selected. But you will lose access to new curriculum, training videos, illustrations bank and community forum.
Does my account renew each year? Do I pay again each year?
The basic plan does not renew.
The standard and premium plans renew automatically every year, but you can cancel anytime. With each renewal, you will get access to additional curriculum. So your library will continue to expand and grow, and you will have continuous access to the training videos, illustrations bank and community forum.
How do I get access to the content? Is it something that I can download, or is it all online?
Once you sign up for a Rooted Reservoir plan, you can access your personalized Rooted Reservoir library by logging in using your username and password. This is where you will go to find all of your purchased products and resources.
The training videos are non-downloadable, but can be watched within Rooted Reservoir.
Each curriculum comes with a downloadable leader guide and student handout in a PDF format for each lesson.
The illustrations bank is searchable and available to you through your Rooted Reservoir login.
How do I connect with the community of youth ministers?
Everyone who joins Rooted Reservoir with a Standard Plan or Premium Plan also has access to the community forum. This forum will be used to ask questions, share ideas and provide feedback. We request youth pastors not share personal contact information on this board.
What does this give me that the free Rooted blog/podcast resources don’t have?
Rooted Reservoir is an expansion of the high-quality resources you have come to expect from Rooted. It includes gospel-centered, Bible-based curriculum and video training along with a bank of teaching illustrations and a community forum.
Does the illustrations bank just give me a song/images? Or does it tell me how to use them?
The illustrations bank contains links to videos, articles, song lyrics, news articles, etc. organized by topics and theological concepts to help you in planning and teaching lessons effectively.
Each illustration is accompanied by a short description to provide you with an overview of what that illustration is about. The illustrations bank is also searchable.
How is the curriculum set up? Is it a PDF that I will read? Is it videos that I’ll watch/share with my students?
Each curriculum features both leader and student guides in a PDF format that can be downloaded and printed. Curriculums include an introduction to the book of the Bible being studied and lessons that provide overarching themes, discussion questions, applications, and a closing that points students back to the gospel of grace.
How extensive is the video training? What specifically does it entail?
The video trainings feature four courses specifically designed for new youth pastors, elders and head pastors, Bible teachers and youth volunteers. There are nearly 50 videos total covering the foundations of youth ministry, effective Bible teaching, relational discipleship, missions, preaching, teaching, self-care, partnering with parents and so much more.
Do I need to credit Rooted in any way when I use this content in my teachings?
All of the curriculum packages and videos include graphics and copyright information crediting Rooted Ministries as the source.
Is there a way that I can try it out first?
Yes, you can download the Philippians curriculum for free.
Will Rooted continue to add content throughout the year?
Rooted will continue to add new curriculum at least twice a year. With the purchase of the Premium Plan, these new curriculum will automatically be added to your library. With the purchase of the Basic or Standard Plan, you would have to purchase an additional offer to gain access to the new curriculum.
Do I pay weekly/monthly? Or all at once?
If you purchase the Basic Plan, there is just a one-time payment to access one curriculum package.
The Standard and Premium Plans will renew each year, but you can cancel at anytime. With each renewal, you will get access to additional curriculum, so you library will continue to expand and grow. And, you will always have access to the training videos, illustrations bank and community forum.
Can I share it with other people?
How do I use the platform during COVID-19?
Rooted Reservoir is uniquely built in a way that you can use it remotely and virtually to train your volunteers on their own schedule, from their own homes if needed.
All of the resources are online so you are able to teach the curriculum to your students virtually as well.
