Sacred Roots Study Groups
Sacred Roots hosts conferences to disciple and equip ministry leaders. These conferences train attendees to facilitate study groups of congregational leaders in engagement with Christian spiritual classics. At the conference, congregational leaders commit to facilitating their study group of 4–12 Christian leaders for approximately one year.
Starting a Study Group
Becoming a Study Group Facilitator
Sacred Roots study group facilitators commit to facilitating a study group of 4–12 Christian leaders for about one year. Sacred Roots study groups consist of church planters, pastors, parachurch ministry leaders, and more. Sacred Roots study groups commit to reading Christian spiritual classics together. To hear more about why we read the Christian spiritual classics, read our "Letter to God's Friends" under "Additional Resources" below.

One reason Sacred Roots exists is to resource Christian leaders with effective, time-tested tools to help them grow. The perks of becoming a Sacred Roots study group facilitator include the opportunity to have Sacred Roots Spiritual Classics provided to you and your study group at discounted rates, or in some cases for free. Additionally, study groups who study at least one Sacred Roots Spiritual Classic have the opportunity to receive Sacred Roots Certificates in Spiritual Formation from The Urban Ministry Institute and Taylor University's Office of Church Relations. Similarly, study group facilitators have the opportunity to receive a Sacred Roots Certificate in Formational Leadership.

We know discipling and equipping Christian leaders in your ministry context is a worthwhile yet challenging task. That's why we have made it quick and easy to apply to become a Sacred Roots study group facilitator. To start, complete the initial Application Form and we will be in contact with you in 7–10 days.
