Cultivating Community

Helping people cultivate safe community is important. I believe God never meant for us to live life alone and the enemy does his greatest work when we’re isolated. That’s why I’m excited for Rooted to launch this September across all three campuses at Grace. Back in January, Rooted was all theory – something we felt God was calling us to do and praying he would be faithful to change lives. Now, after two pilots and many stories, I’m convinced: Rooted is the vehicle God will use to shake the dust off our faith.



The truth is, Rooted is just a program. But God is bringing a fresh awakening to this church because of people who stepped forward. People like Richard who, after years of attending Grace, now feels like he has friends who support him. People like Brit who anticipated judgement but received acceptance. People like Maria who now has a reignited passion to disciple others. People like Jeff who found freedom from sin that has weighed him down for years.



It’s not about Rooted; it’s about you. And I believe God wants to do more with your life than you can imagine.
