Leadership at Rooftop Starts With …
The Father, Son and Spirit
God’s in charge. We don’t get to sit in on the Trinity’s board meetings or anything, but we read His memos (that’s the Bible), spend a lot of time praying for His leadership, and try to execute His will. (In case you’re curious on our theology, click here.)
Rooftop is an elder-led church. The congregation elects a group of guys that handle most of the big decisions, like staffing, vision, theology, and helping clean up big church messes. There can be anywhere between 3 and 12 elders, all of whom are elected to two-year terms. The pastor does serve on the elder team, but is the only staff member that can. Learn more
The staff is led by Matt Herndon, the Lead Pastor, and includes those at Rooftop who are paid to serve the church. This includes a couple pastors and an administrator, all of whom have primary job emphases but also oversee other leaders and volunteers. Meet the staff
In the Bible there are servant-leaders who are busy serving the church community. They’re called “deacons.” Rooftop’s got a large deacon team that is approved by the elders and led by the staff. The deacon team includes small group deacons who lead small groups (click here for more on small groups). The team also includes ministry deacons who lead service teams like the cleaning crew, treasury team, and children’s ministry. Learn more
Rooftop has a ton of hard-working volunteers that work for their deacon leaders around the church. We wouldn’t exist as a church if not for these servants who use their time and gifts for the purpose of helping the church mature and grow.
