A Relationship Conference for Young Adults

February 21 - 22, 2020


What is

Rooted In Love is the weekend conference everyone needs to experience! It's a two-day, co-ed relationship conference that has been designed by people like you with you in mind.

It’s a time for release, an outpouring of wisdom and of course an encounter with Jesus. It's a space of safety and transparency, an atmosphere of worship, an unending amount of fun and unforgettable connections.

From pre-conference worship and our keynote speaker to our panel discussion, lunch, breakout sessions and social activities, every detail of the conference has been designed to push us back to God, to be challenged, to learn, to grow and to connect.

RIL 2020: It's A Heart Issue

We'll dig into questions like why can’t I keep a man/woman, how do I get over him/her, what is intimacy anyway, why does purity matter and does it affect marriage, how can I trust again, get over my insecurities and betrayal, what does a healthy relationship look like and how can I have one... and the list goes on!

The challenge is that our issues are deeper than "the issue" itself. The longer we leave something unaddressed, the deeper it becomes rooted in us. We unknowingly let the past affect our present and dictate our futures. Can we love God more than we love ourselves, our desires, our pleasures?

Language of Love & Respect

Men and women are wired differently. Men are to love their wives and women are to respect their husbands, but some just don’t know how. This breakout will focus on the cleansing required to be able to love and respect one’s significant other, an unlearning of things we've learned and an understanding of how to meet each other's needs to develop fruitful relationships.

Pursuing Purity*

Sex has so permeated our culture that it has become expected in romantic relationships, however God has called us to be pure. What exactly is purity and how should it look? What about pornography and masturbation? Is there hope for me? This session will explore purity as a mindset, our pasts and the dangers of engaging sexually before marriage.

Discovering Intimacy*

Intimacy isn’t just physical. What is true intimacy and how can we develop intimacy when not expressing affection or affirmation physically? This breakout will dig into emotional maturity, vulnerability and the importance of expressing yourself as a man/woman and in a relationship to develop true intimacy with the person you are growing to love.

Marriage vs Mirage: What I Wish I Would’ve Known before Marriage

Led by a married couple, this breakout session will address common hiccups, assumptions and fallacies couples have prior to marriage. Understanding compromise, expectations, effective communication and past experiences and the role these things play in a relationship.

*Groups are men only / women only

Rooted in Love
Changed My Life

When attending Rooted in Love I felt like God was speaking directly to me through the speakers and breakout topics. I went through a messy breakup that broke my heart.

God used Rooted in Love to mend my heart and show me the definition of real love.

Rooted in Love Mission

Our mission with Rooted In Love is to equip our attendees with the tools to build healthy relationships leading to successful marriages. It's more than "another one of those relationship conferences" or "singles conference" and we're not "just talking about love again"! Expect the unexpected.

While our focus is Christ and drawing near and hearing from Him, Rooted In Love is also where you might find future bae or a new sis or bro in Christ. It's where you can expect real, raw answers to relationship questions, freedom from past experiences and so much more.
