Youth Minister Gatherings in Local Communities

February Rooted Regional Group









Learn More About Rooted Regional Groups

Rooted Regional Groups are gatherings of youth pastors in local communities for the sake of fellowship, prayer, and instruction. We are led by practicing youth pastors and we have learned over the years 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. Youth pastors 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. If this sounds familiar, we'd encourage you to join us for a Rooted Regional Group gathering.

To join a Rooted Regional Group, fill out the form below with your name and email, and your local Rooted Regional Group leader will be in touch with details on where and when to join them for the next gathering.

At Rooted Regional Groups, youth pastors gather for a meal, authentic fellowship, prayer, and a 10-15 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.

If you are not located near one of our current regional group locations you are welcome to join us for our Online RRG that will take place via Zoom call. Just select "Online RRG" under location when registering. 
We also have an online RRG that meets for those who are in the Asian American Church. 
If you are interested in starting a RRG in your area please contact [email protected]

There is no cost to host or attend a RRG. We simply ask our RRG leaders to provide a place for everyone to gather, send out a template email that we will provide you to invite others to join, and lead the group in the discussion questions provided.
