The STory of Rooted in SwMO
In 2017 Rooted Church in Northwest Arkansas started a Missional Community that began meeting on Friday nights in Joplin, Mo to prayerfully consider whether God was calling this group to plant a church in Joplin. God answered that question and on September 3rd Rooted Church held their first gathering in Joplin at the Baptist Student Union on the campus of MSSU. In January of 2018 Rooted Church began two Missional Communities that meet weekly in South Joplin and North Webb City (more info here). We are still a brand new church plant and continue to pray that God would continue to add to our number those would join us as a Family of Missionary Disciples.
