The purpose of ROOTS is to call people to biblical Christianity, radical discipleship, contemporary communication of the gospel and a passion for the lost. These are at the ‘root' of The Salvation Army as part of the Christian Church.

ROOTS exists to challenge all to adhere to the model of biblical Christianity, to discover that spirit (the holy flame) that fueled the passion of the founders and trailblazers of The Salvation Army and to deepen our resolve to serve God no matter the cost. The ROOTS-South leadership team believes that we should require a Christianity that costs something, that requires of us our deepest devotion, and a spirit that keeps the question of our motives ever before us.

It is a lot to expect out of an event, but we already know that God can do anything far more than we could ever imagine or hope for. We hope to again create an environment where God can lead and speak to every person, no matter the age, through several avenues.

This year's theme, Dance Upon Injustice, carries a heavy load and a strong calling to stand with God to fight against injustice.


The seminar streams this year will provide teaching in the following areas: Moving Through Ministries, Helping the Poverty-Stricken, Discipling His People and Breaking the Addictions. These four streams will be led by many different people who are actively involved in ministry and will be able to share ways in which we can Dance Upon Injustice on a local or global level.
