I.   Welcome to The Rooted Sisters


Our Mission

The mission of The Rooted Sisters is to provide a safe place to educate, equip and empower Christian business women to grow in a closer, more intimate, relationship with the person of Jesus Christ.

Our Message

The Rooted Sisters is a professional Christian group with all content designed to glorify Jesus Christ. Our Belief Statements should guide our in-person and digital conversations.

Our Belief Statements

We believe the Holy Bible is the perfect Word of God, written by various people at various times in history through His grace and inspiration. We believe the study of God’s word helps deepen our relationship with our Father, to love and serve Him more fully so that all we do is rooted in Christ.

We believe a Christ-centered community helps us grow into the person Our Father wants us to become.  A Christ-centered community provides comfort and support and also challenges us to follow God’s will in all aspects of our personal and professional lives.

We believe God is calling us to lead and to bring glory and honor to Him. In positions of leadership, we help others develop their God-given talents and we testify to the power of prayer. We promote the building of healthy families, ethical businesses and a world that is more Christ-like.

The Board of The Rooted Sisters reserves the right to withhold or remove messaging from digital properties we own, manage, or host at the sole discretion of the organization.

Our Organization

The Rooted Sisters is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. We rely on the generosity of our participants and the Christian community to support the vision God has called us to. We encourage our ladies to pray for God’s direction in their giving.


II.   Norms of Conduct



The Rooted Sisters is a safe-space. In our gatherings – virtual and in-person – we strive to honor God and one another through our words and conduct.

In instances where a sister is offended by another, we discourage gossip amongst the group. Instead, we espouse the manner of communication as outlined in Matthew 18:15-16:

“If another believer sins against you, go privately and point out the offense. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back. But if you are unsuccessful, take one or two others with you and go back again, so that everything you say may be confirmed by two or three witnesses.”

If, for some reason, you do not feel comfortable speaking with this person one-on-one, please come to one of the leaders of The Rooted Sisters to provide assistance.

Contact Information

Out of respect for your privacy, The Rooted Sisters does not distribute Contact Lists of its sisters.


III. On Site Bible Study

Where Bible Study is held at a business, attendees will be required to comply with the security policy of the business, including but not limited to signing in and out at arrival and departure.

Events may be held in a participant’s home where animals may be present. Participants may also wish to bring pets to events held in public spaces, such as offices, restaurants, and other venues.  Because The Rooted Sisters is an organization of professional women, participants should refrain from bringing animals to events sponsored by The Rooted Sisters.  Where a participant hosts an event at the participant’s home, any animals present at the home should be excluded from the space where the meeting is being held and should be kept under control.  A service animal, as defined in the Animal Policy, is exempted from this policy.


IV. Animal Policy (Including Service Animals)

A “Service Animal” is a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability.  Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting someone who is having a seizure, reminding a person with a mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties.  Service animals are working animals, not pets.  The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under this policy.

A service animal must be under the control of its handler.  The service animal must be harnessed, leashed or tethered, unless the individual’s disability prevents these devices, or these devices interfere with the service animal’s safe, effective performance of tasks.  In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.

When it is not obvious what service an animal provides, the individual will be required to provide the following information: a) whether the dog is service animal required because of a disability and b) what work or task the dog has been trained to perform.  The individual will not be asked about, or required to provide, any additional information about the need for a service animal, such as information about the person’s disability (including medical information), any special identification card or training documentation for the service animal or a demonstration that the service animal can perform the work or task.

An individual with a service animal will be required to remove the service animal from the event if the service animal is (a) out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control it or (b) the service animal is not housebroken.  Once a service animal has been removed or excluded from participating in an event, The Rooted Sisters will arrange an alternative method for the individual to participate in the event offered (such as by zoom or videoconference) without the service animal if this can be done without an undue hardship to The Rooted Sisters.


V.   Whistleblower Policy

The Rooted Sisters requires directors, officers and employees to observe high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. This Whistleblower Policy is intended to encourage and enable employees and others to raise serious concerns internally so that The Rooted Sisters can address and correct inappropriate conduct and actions. It is the responsibility of all board members, officers, employees, and volunteers to report concerns about suspected violations of law or regulations that govern The Rooted Sister’s operations.  It is contrary to the values of The Rooted Sisters for anyone to retaliate against any board member, officer, employee, or volunteer who in good faith reports a suspected violation of law, such as a complaint of discrimination, or suspected fraud, or suspected violation of any regulation governing the operations of The Rooted Sisters.  An employee who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment.

If you have concerns about a suspected violation of law or regulations, you are encouraged to speak to the Executive Director. If the complaint involves the Executive Director, you are encouraged to speak with the Chair of the Board of Directors.  Violations or suspected violations may be submitted on a confidential basis by the complainant. Reports of violations or suspected violations will be kept confidential to the extent possible, consistent with the need to conduct an adequate investigation. All complaints will be promptly investigated, and appropriate corrective action will be taken if warranted by the investigation.
