Biblical literacy for women of all ages
"Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers." Psalm 1:1-3
Rooted has as its focus a gospel centered, committed, intentional, multiplying relationship founded on God’s Word. If you want to be obedient to God’s mandate to make disciples but think you are ill equipped, join us and learn to be confident in the stewardship of God’s Word. If you have always longed to have a loving, godly woman come alongside you to pour in to you, this is the ministry for you! Our desire is that all women will be discipled and that God’s Word would transform their lives for God’s glory.
This ministry focuses on:
- Defining Biblical Discipleship.
- Training women who feel ill-equipped to disciple others.
- Making women aware of the gamut of opportunities to teach others how to study the Word.
- Prayerfully pairing women to study God's Word and build relationship with the Lord and each other.
To accomplish this:
Prospective Disciplers (women who are interested in being trained to disciple) - will read three core books and go through a 10-week instruction on the Inductive Study Method. Our goal is to train and equip mature believers within the Colonial family to become Biblical Disciple makers. Once trained, the Disciplers are connected with committed disciples through either a one-on-one or a group format. As the foundational relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ grows the bonds between the women are strengthened. Please Register Here and fill out the Discipler Jotform if you are interested in joining our team of Disciple Makers.
Prospective Disciples (women who desire accountability and discipleship) - We have women available to meet with you in a one on one setting. Discipleship pairs meet a minimum of every other week for a 3 month period and your meetings are focused around a study of the Word. If you would like to be paired with a Discipler, please Register Here. Rosita Perkins, the ministry coordinator will be in touch with you upon completing the form.
*This 2020 fall season, we will use Zoom to train prospective Disciplers. The pairs will have this as an option to meeting together.
If you have any questions regarding the Rooted ministry, please contact Rosita Perkins directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
