TOP GUN ROOTED TRAINING - JOHN'S STORY

John Worthy says that Rooted has yielded a "gigantic transformation" in his journey with Jesus. He has participated in Rooted since we piloted the experience at Ventura Missionary Church eleven sessions ago. He thought initially that he was being asked to review another Bible study the church was considering, but he quickly realized that this was not another "program." He says the transformation he has received through Rooted is second only to his time reading through the entire Bible.
