Rooted 2020 Micro Conferences: Thursday, September 24


Tomorrow morning we will kick off our 10th anniversary conference in 40 cities across the United States and Canada as one virtual group. Although Rooted 2020 does not look like what we originally planned, God knew it would look different from the beginning. And we are grateful for his sovereignty in laying the groundwork to host micro conferences that offer great teaching in addition to fostering community and fellowship among youth pastors.

Rooted 2020 Nationwide Micro Conferences: Bringing Rooted to Your Town will feature Bible-based teaching and community fellowship through prayer, discussion, and the breaking of bread all while maintaining safety protocols to the prevent the spread of COVID-19. “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” – Matthew 18:20

Whether it is a group of 5 or 30, it is our hope that gathering safely in small groups during these times will be blessing to all participants. Rooted 2020 features worship leader Sandra McCracken, the plenaries and workshops outlined below, and a LIVE Q&A panel to answer any questions you have about ministry in these uncertain times.
