Regional Groups: Youth Minister Gatherings in Local Communities

Rooted Regional Groups are gatherings of youth pastors in local communities for the sake of fellowship, prayer, and instruction. We have learned historically that youth pastors long for fellowship that is authentic (non-awkward) and where conversation focuses on where they are encouraged and discouraged in life and ministry, not on numbers. They want other youth pastors with whom they can pray. They also want good instruction on how to do more effective youth ministry but do not want the pressure of having to produce it among themselves.

At Rooted Regional Groups, youth pastors come together for authentic fellowship, prayer, and discussion of 20-25 minutes of video instruction, provided by Rooted, featuring a national expert. We hope to offer the benefits and experience of a Rooted conference in a local community three-times per year. On November 8 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., we will host our next round of Rooted Regional Groups for 2018 in cities listed below.
