Rooted was built and used by the pastoral team at Golden Grove Wesleyan Church to develop spiritual disciplines in the lives of the congregants.

Rooted was used over the course of a full calendar year! Throughout the year, other sermon series would break for a week or two in order to study the next spiritual discipline.

These disciplines, and the largest portion of material presented, were adapted from Richard Foster’s modern classic, Celebration of Discipline.

Other materials used were Banning Liebscher’s Rooted: The Hidden Places Where God Develops You, and Dallas Willard’s The Spirit of the Disciplines.

All of these resources are available on and can be found by following the links below:
