Welcome! RSLP is a FREE program designed to grow, develop, equip, & empower youth leaders in the Roots Youth Ministry. I'm glad you're here!
Is RSLP for you?
Are you an incoming 6th-12th grade student?
Are you ready to learn what it really means to trust God, follow Jesus, and live a life worthy of your God-given calling?
Do you want to learn about how to be a Christian among your friends, at school, and around family?
If you said Yes to these Qs, then RSLP is for you!!
Each week we will have: teachings, discussions, break times (bring your own snack + outdoor free time), identity-in-Christ development, group activities, prayer, and a weekly challenge to complete before next week’s RSLP gathering.
Starts Sunday, June 28th
8 weeks long
Ends Sunday, August 16th with an awards ceremony afterwards (4:45pm - 5:30pm)
Materials we ask RSLP youth to bring:
Their own personal Bible. This is to be a physical book to hold, read, and highlight verses in. NOTE: If youth does not have a personal Bible yet, please contact me (Brittney) so I can put one in their hands.
A portable outdoor chair.
A pen/pencil and a highlighter.
A small snack to eat during break time (these are not to be shared).
All other materials will be provided by Roots Youth Ministries and KIUMC.
RSLP Awards Ceremony

RSLP Youth! Get ready to share your "RSLP Standouts," be awarded your Certificate of Completion, and receive some gifts from your RSLP Leaders!
RSLP Certificate of Completion
RSLP Certificates will be awarded at the RSLP Award Ceremony to youth who have completed the Roots Summer Leadership Program.
Youth must make every effort to attend each week.
No more than 2 absences will be allowed, as this is only an 8 week program.
In order to complete the program and be awarded an RSLP Certificate of Completion, youth must notify Brittney/Femi in advance AND ask another RSLP youth to inform them of what they missed.
Applications are due by midnight on Wednesday, June 24th. Spots are limited!
Registration is now closed. Thank you to all of our applicants!
