Pastor of Connections and Outreach

DESCRIPTION: Rooftop is an inter-denominational, energetic, growing, medium-sized, 20-year-old Christian church reaching a diversity of people in an inner suburb of St. Louis. More than your typical post-modern church, Rooftop maintains a commitment to big-tent Biblical orthodoxy while also embracing authenticity, humor and even a bit of irreverence for the sake of reaching all kinds of people with the love and truth of Jesus. After moving into a larger, renovated building in November 2016 and getting ready to successfully launch a daughter-church in the summer of 2020, we are ready to consider our next steps as a congregation. These next steps include hiring an associate-level pastor to lead our outreach efforts, oversee connections ministries, and also assist with the general teaching and pastoral responsibilities.


  • Outreach and Evangelism. Oversight of all church outreach efforts including planning of outreach events and supervision of outreach-oriented ministries. Empowerment of the church body to do the work of outreach, service, and evangelism.
  • Connections. Leadership over the Connections ministry and sub-ministries (Greeting, Hospitality, etc.), in which newcomers are welcomed intentionally and integrated into the life of the church.
  • Leader Supervision and Development. Supervision of current volunteer leaders and development of future ministry leaders and volunteers.
  • Preaching and Teaching. Monthly Sunday morning preaching and ongoing small group leadership.
  • Pastoral Care. Pastoral care in a variety of contexts: counseling, weddings, funerals, marital help.
  • Miscellaneous. Shared administrative and pastoral work with Lead Pastor and current staff, and service to the Elder Team as directed.


  • Spiritual gifts desired include some combination of teaching, leadership, encouragement, administration, prayer, and evangelism.
  • Passion for outreach and evangelism, and experience mobilizing outreach efforts.
  • Experience in event planning, assimilation, and leading volunteers.
  • Masters-level theological and ministry training preferred but not required. Teaching and preaching experience preferred.
  • A cooperative and selfless spirit, not prone to argumentativeness or arrogance. Self-starter. One who has a history of leadership submissive to elders and capable of working as a team member with other ministry leaders.
  • Spiritually mature in terms of prayer and study.
  • Honest and forthcoming concerning patterns of sin and past history.
  • Committed to basic Christian theology and Rooftop’s Statement of Faith.
  • Committed to Rooftop’s purpose, practices, and personality as a church. 
  • Committed to long-term employment and involvement at Rooftop Church. Interest in possible future church-planting or serving as a site pastor strongly considered.
