Young Anglicans Project is sponsoring a gathering of youth ministers (full or part time) at the Rooted Conference in 2016 (like we did in 2015). We will spend a day and a half before the conference together and then experience the Rooted Conference. Rooted was started by Anglicans but now draws a variety of folks who all are seeking a more intimate conference experience that goes deeper than the standard youth ministry conferences out there. Info is due out this week about our gathering. Meanwhile, see what the conference is about at rooted ministry.com
Back in 2010 our founder, Frank Limehouse, came up with the idea to have a youth ministry conference entirely focused on the Gospel after reading Christless Christianity by Michael Horton. He declared that no segment of the church lacked the message of the crucified Christ more than youth ministry. Rev. Limehouse determined that we should have a conference focused on the Gospel in youth ministry alone, and resolved to book Michael Horton — the authorial inspiration for Rooted — for that very first conference. We failed to get him.
“Back where it all begins” is where we arrive for Rooted 2016. Michael Horton will serve as our keynote. The Gospel as the core of youth ministry, as always, will serve as the axis of this conference.
This year, we focus on reconciliation. We will look at how this theme of salvation relates to our students and to the hearts of youth pastors who desperately need the comfort of God’s grace.
We come with modest expectations. The only thing we promise is the most comforting, encouraging youth ministry conference you will ever experience. And that’s not an empty promise. In our closing survey, 98.7% of our 250 attendees at 2015 conference said that Rooted was the best youth ministry conference they had ever attended. (Yes, that's a literal statistic.)
Come see for yourself. We aim to encourage, equip, and educate you on more effective, Gospel-centered youth ministry. Sign up for Rooted today.
