The Emerging Rooftop UK Team

David Gilbey

United Kingdom Pioneer

If you are interested in finding out more about the  work of The Rooftop here in the UK, or would like to consider joining the team for your locality you are very welcome to contact David for an exploratory chat.

About David Gilbey

A follower of Jesus since 1980, age 18, now married with three grown up children, David has lived all his life in Chelmsford, Essex. 2011, he retired from a 30 year police career, strongly believing God had something significant and very different ahead for him.

In 2014, after three years of local co-leading Healing on The Streets, God clearly told David to start a city-wide intercessory prayer movement, Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer, which then led to involvement in prayer and prophetic circles more widely, within Essex and nationally. 2018 to April 2021, David was also Chair of his city’s unity group, Christians Together in Chelmsford.

Early 2019, orchestrated he believes by The Lord, David met Dennis Pethers and he quickly saw that their respective visions had much in common. David was invited to join the UK Board of The Rooftop and it soon became apparent that The Lord was guiding him to serve The Rooftop as UK Pioneer.
