“What is Rooted?” Webinar | May 2017

The Bible was not given for our information, but for our transformation.
— D.L. Moody
For most of us, it’s probably not the first time we’ve read that quote, but it doesn’t make it any less challenging…maybe even frustrating. We would all like to see our people transformed instead of just informed. But, who’s doing that well?
Mariners Church asked that same question. Mariners has been at it for 50 years now, but the processes we were using and the results we were getting were not what we wanted. We decided to look elsewhere.
Not only did we look outside of Mariners Church, we looked outside of the Western Hemisphere. The discipleship tool we discovered was in Kenya. Originally called “Mizizi”, Rooted made its way to Mariners Church. It’s not Western. It’s not typical Christian Education. But, it is transformational.
Now, don’t get me wrong, our intent is not to sell you the best thing since sliced bread for discipleship. Our heart and our mission is to show you something that will help in ways you won’t believe possible. Over the last six years at Mariners Church, we have seen some amazing results in the lives of Rooted graduates: 70% volunteer and start or increase their serving, 82% increased their giving, and 90% go on in a Life Group. What would those percentages do for your church?
I know what you’re thinking, “Well, that would probably work great for us too, if we had the resources.” Here’s the best part, Rooted works in all kinds of churches: smaller churches, larger churches, megachurches, various denominations, and all over the world. The Rooted Network has organically grown to hundreds of churches implementing Rooted and seeing very similar results.
We didn’t discover something new. We discovered something old. The discipleship methods in Rooted were used by the Early Church, the Moravians, the Celtics, the early Methodists, and now churches across several continents.
We want to invite you to learn more about Rooted and the resources available through the Network. Join us on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 10:30 AM PST for the “What is Rooted?” webinar, hosted by Matt Olthoff, Rooted Coach, and Allen White, Group Life Consultant and Coach.
