Rooted: a new model for youth work to help young people thrive


Creating safe spaces for children and young people to explore who they are, why they matter and the difference Jesus makes...

What is Rooted?

Rooted logo

Rooted offers a new and different approach to youth ministry. By encouraging the development of long-term relationships with young people, Rooted provides strong foundations for the nurture of lifelong, authentic faith. It is a simple way for churches and youth leaders to engage young people where they are at.

Rooted is an innovative and flexible framework for long-term relational ministry with young people, which can be used in any context, with any level of faith development and with any level of ability. 

The Rooted model starts where young people are at - culturally, in their interests and passions, and at their faith stage – seeking to provide space for each young person to grow, flourish and be nurtured in a safe, committed and compassionate Christian community.
