What is Root Church?


Root Church – enabling you to grow your impact

Simplified, our goal for Root Church is to supply all the “stuff” that can bog a Children’s Minister down, so that Children’s Minister no longer has to focus for hours on implementation, creative “pump ups” of their curriculum, or re-inventing something that they need for their church body. This way, they can focus on what really matters: spending time with God, impacting the kids of your church with  a God-empowered message to the hearts of their kids, and reaching the lost in their community.
 We refuse to just supply the lesson! Instead, all the tools are supplied to take them from beginning to end with graphic, creative ideas AND supplies – everything that would make it memorable and exciting for a kid to attend on a weekly basis. We also really believe in equipping children’s leaders with tools such as leadership empowerment of their teams, and tools for setting up their own prize redemption station, or a smooth-flowing check-in / check-out process to keep the kids of the church safe.
