Making disciples of all nations.
"Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over and countless millions have been redeemed and are worshiping before the Throne of God—missions will be no more. So worship is the fuel and the goal of missions." (Piper, Let the Nations Be Glad)
We want to see the glory of God spread around the globe, so that:
- God receives the praise that He is so worthy of receiving
- Those who are lost and apart from Him, might be found through faith in Jesus Christ.
It is our goal to be a church that equips, supports, and sends people across the globe with the gospel of Jesus Christ who will "make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28:19)
Leading that mission at Rooftop is our Global Outreach Team (GO Team). The GO Team works:
- Within the church family - to help equip believers with the vision of Jesus Christ's mission for us all.
- Beyond our church walls - our church sends believers to serve locally and around the world invite all people to "follow Jesus" and then help establish new churches who will also carry on this vision.
We send short-term teams to places like Mexico, Kosovo, Africa, and elsewhere in order to serve the local church, build homes, equip and train pastors, love at-risk children, and provide health care.
Some of the Global Outreach Ministries that Rooftop supports are:
- Gospel for Asia
- Greater Europe Mission
- InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
- New City Fellowship - Bhutanese/Nepali Refugee Ministry
- Strategic Alliance
- The Evangelical Alliance Mission-TEAM
- Wycliffe Bible Translators
