APPLICATION DEADLINE: May 15, 2020


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 (which include building an online presence), oversee connections ministries, and also assist with the general teaching and pastoral responsibilities.

  • Experience in event planning, assimilation, and leading volunteers also greatly preferred.
  • Some teaching/preaching experience skills not required but preferred. Theological training not required but 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 and values as a church. Our purpose as a church is simply To be followers of Christ who make followers of Christ who make followers of Christ. Our values as a church include six: Relevant Teaching, Exciting Worship, Caring Evangelism, Authentic Community, Active Service, and Heart-Felt Prayer. Also, comfortable with the “unstated” values of Rooftop: humor, relevance, open-mindedness, authenticity, inter-denominationalism.
  • Committed to long-term employment and involvement at Rooftop Church. Interest in possible future church-planting or serving as a site pastor strongly considered.
