Dennis Pethers is from London, England and leads a global movement that encourages and equips Christians to join Jesus in His Mission.  In addition he serves as a world-wide consultant for LifeWay. Hear his passion…

My passion is to help the church today to face a new reality. This new reality is that generations growing up in what were once Christian countries are no longer inheriting the assumptions of their parents and Grandparents. The gospel is no longer the filter through which these generations understand the world and increasingly church plays no part in their lives. They are ‘never churched’. They don’t know the staggering truth of the gospel!

Sadly, in this new reality, many churches continue to function in the same way as they did at a time when most people were ‘churched’. But the new reality requires a new approach and, at the heart of this, I believe is the need for a movement of ordinary Christians who will have the confidence and desire to share their faith with people who don’t know that they don’t know Jesus!

It is because of this great need I have launched The Rooftop. As well as ministering through The Rooftop I have created this website because I want to be able to offer help and support to leaders, churches and individuals as they seek to share Jesus with people beyond the walls…to help churches and individual Christians to grasp the opportunity that we now have in this new reality.
