Introducing incoming SHSU students to the local body of Christ in Huntsville. Rooted Retreat is a Christ-centered retreat at Sam Houston State University. It is a 3 day retreat experience held in August for incoming students at SHSU. It exists to welcome incoming students to campus and introduce them to the body of Christ in Huntsville by connecting them to other students, local churches, and ministries that will provide biblical community and fellowship founded on the truth of scripture and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It seeks to explicitly share the gospel, allow for students to meet fellow believers, and encourages involvement in a local Huntsville church.

The Role of Counselors

Counselors are the heartbeat of Rooted Retreat! The counselor’s role holds the most contact with the incoming class of students and makes up most of the Rooted team. We want our counselors to love Jesus and the incoming class. They should desire to pray for their students, for their students to come to saving faith, and for their students to find a biblical church community. Counselors should desire to connect with, teach, and invest in the incoming class at Rooted Retreat and during the following fall semester.
