Are your groups ready for a deeper faith?

Deep Dive is a series of Bible Study resources that take core theological truths and make them accessible for everyone. Workbooks include four days of personal devotions, leader notes, and supplemental resources designed to prepare people for time together as a group. Each weekly session pairs the devotional reading with deeper video-teaching for meaningful conversation. 

Like all Rooted Network resources, the Deep Dive series is built around the 7 Rhythms of a disciple and includes experiential learning opportunities.
