I have volunteered with Through the Roof mostly helping the administrative staff, and also participated in some of the Fellowship of Friends social events. This really is a caring organization who want to help people affected by disability and share the love of Jesus with them, to spread the Gospel message to those who haven't heard, and to strengthen believers to live their faith. I have enjoyed hearing the inspirational results of their local and international outreach. And I have been blessed by serving in this ministry.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting people affected by disability and seeing them as people, benefited from prayers and encouragement of the staff in a time of my own medical crisis, saw the blessing a friend received from Devotional materials sent to her by this organization when she was discouraged with severe health problems.

I'm not sure what changes I would make. That is not my area of skill, but I would want more people to get involved so the blessings can be multiplied.

It was such an incredible experience to complete the Heart Force Bible study written by Shanda Gobeli with Through the Roof, Strength of Heart Ministry. This manual has helped me to focus on how God can use my trials with disability to take hope to others. After reading the manual I went and visited people with disabilities in a nursing home and shared with them that God still has a plan for their life. I hope to continue to go and join Through the Roof in their visitation ministry.

Often parents feel turned away by the church because they do not have a class for their child with a disability. After searching many churches and feeling hopeless we went to a church were Through the Roof Ministries (TTRM) leads the disability ministry. Our son fit in so well in the class and the teachers showed him love and understood his needs. They made it possible for our family to go to church and each of us to be refreshed to face another difficult week of therapy, doctor appointments and special ed classes... TTRM offers workshops for the Sunday school teachers and they provide physical and spiritual support for the teachers and families.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their compassionate care and helping the local church meet the need of families with a child with a disability.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find volunteers to serve in local church disability ministries so more families and people with disabilities would have a place of respite in the church.

Through the Roof Ministries has a baby bundle outreach. Picture a young mother who just received the news her newborn infant has a disability. With no money, no resources, and no help, hope seems a world away. And then the door opens and in walks someone with a brightly wrapped “baby bundle” filled with special gifts to help care for that new life. But most importantly, the bundle opens the door for the gospel of Jesus to be shared and for the family to be connected to a local church.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Finding unique ways to reach out and encourage people with disabilities.
