In 2015, a few women who were leaders in the St. Louis area, expressed the desire and need for connection with other Christian executive female business leaders. After much searching for several months for a group, Rooted Sisters was formed to meet this need. Co-founded by Lisa Nichols and Cindy Owens (Erickson), this group has grown organically over the past four years from three to over eighty women. It is a testament to the fact that women need women and are longing to belong to a community of other faith-based leaders who can encourage and earnestly admonish one another to impact our world for the Kingdom. The primary focus of the Rooted Sisters is on individual and group Bible study, while also encouraging one-on-one discipleship.
The Rooted Sisters’ mission is to provide a safe place for women who are leaders in the marketplace to connect with one another and also grow in a closer, more intimate, relationship with the person of Jesus Christ.
Women in leadership have a unique opportunity for influence. The vision of the Rooted Sisters is that as women become more rooted and grounded in Christ, they will bear much fruit in their homes, organizations and communities – all for the glory of God.Owens
1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers.2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers.
