Connect with God, the church,     and your purpose.  

Do you believe God has uniquely created you with a purpose and plan? What if you heard God speak and you felt the love of Jesus in a profound way? Imagine yourself in a community of people who cared for you, listened to you and supported you. What if you stepped into the ROOTED journey and experienced personal transformation? Rooted is a catalyst for life change where discussion is held in a small group environment, creating a safe space for biblical exploration and practical learning experiences.


Thousands of people have been taken through ROOTED across the globe, and we believe God will use this curriculum as a tool to bring life change and transformation to the greater West Chester area. 


Rooted is a 10-week journey for people in every stage of life, no matter where they are in their relationship with God. The weekly readings teach us what it means to be a disciple of Jesus through an experiential model built on foundational elements of Christianity such as Scripture, prayer, worship, generosity and service.






The Fall ROOTED will kick off on Sunday, September 20th at 7pm. Depending on demand and interest, we are hoping to offer a men's group, women's group, and a co-ed Zoom group. In addition to their weekly meeting time, the group will participate in three “experiences” outside of their usual group time: 


  • Prayer Experience 

  • Serve Experience 

  • Celebration 


*Like all of our current small groups, ROOTED groups will offer a hybrid of Zoom and in-person gatherings following the Pennsylvania restrictions and recommendations.

What is Rooted?

ROOTED is a 10-week discipleship program and a catalyst for life-change. It provokes questions and conversations and group experiences designed to give you a glimpse of your story in God’s story.

Where will my ROOTED group meet?

Like all of our small groups, ROOTED gatherings will be a hybrid of Zoom and in-person gatherings, following Pennsylvania's safety restrictions and recommendations.

How do I register and what does it cost?

Register for ROOTED online here. The cost is $15. For questions about registration, please contact Rachel Short at

Is there childcare available?

We are not officially offering childcare for our Rooted groups.

What if I cannot make all ten weeks?

We understand that ROOTED is a large time commitment, but we believe it is worth it to invest in the entire process. If you know you are going to miss more than 3 meetings, we ask that you wait until the next session of ROOTED in the spring. The 10 weeks are a cumulative experience, and so we ask that every participant commit to honor each other with being at every meeting.

How will my ROOTED group be chosen?

Our staff and group leaders will prayerfully place participants into groups of about 8-14 people.* *For the Summer 2020 ROOTED, there will be one combined group of men and women.

What is the difference between ROOTED groups and a typical small group?

ROOTED is the on-ramp to small groups. Your ROOTED group at the end of the 10 weeks will multiply into a small group, and so we strongly advise that you go through ROOTED before joining an open small group.

Are there scholarships available?

We believe that ROOTED is a life-changing experience and we want everyone to participate! We understand that the ROOTED registration fee may be a burden for some, and we are happy to provide scholarships. Please email for more information.

Can I facilitate a ROOTED group?

To become a ROOTED Facilitator, you must have gone through our 938 Leader Training and signed our leadership covenant.
