Rooftop Friends Disability Ministry

RTF Family Retreat 2015 Logo

 

Rooftop Friends Disabilities Ministry seeks to share the love of Christ with families and individuals who care for loved ones, or even themselves with a physical, cognitive or behavioral disability. Young Meadows members believe that we all are given a certain purpose and responsibility in the Body of Christ and that we need to assist one another to carry out the work the Lord has for us to do for his kingdom service.

The great need for this ministry came about through biblical teaching and studying of God's Word as it tells us in Luke 14:12-24 in the parable of the Great Banquet to "Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor, and crippled and blind and lame"; and "Go out the highways and the hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled."(vs. 21,23).

Rooftop Friends provides respite care for children and adults with disabilities, giving their regular caregivers a time to rest, run errands, or just be away for a brief time. 

Rooftop Friends has sponsored Family Retreats along with Hope Heals ministry (established by Katherine and Jay Wolf) for several years at Camps ASCCA and McDowell, enlisting more than 600 campers and volunteers for a week of outdoor activities, fellowship with one another, and spiritual renewal.
