Lead Pastor
Grace Bible Church, Elmhurst, IL
November 4, 2014
Lead Pastor
Grace Bible Church, Elmhurst, IL

Grace Bible Church is seeking a lead pastor who loves the Lord and is following him.  We are looking for him to equip the men and women of our church to do the work of service so that we know the Lord, are living in the love of Christ, and helping others to do the same. 

This pastor, first and foremost, will be following the Lord, and will be devoted to prayer, worship, and Scripture study both personally and as a part of his ministry.  This pastor will also champion the vision of the Lord as Supreme in our lives.  He will regularly exhort a broad audience to believe in the Lord, turn from sin, and follow Him.  We expect him to do this by preaching most Sunday mornings, and by delivering messages that magnify the Lord and articulate truths of Scriptures with depth and precision. 

Furthermore, this pastor will equip the men and women of our church to make disciples with the result that more and more people in our church and community know the Lord, walk in obedience to Him, and invest in the lives of others so that they also make disciples.  This pastor will meet regularly with church leaders and members, individually or in small groups, to teach them, challenge them to greater steps of faith and obedience, encourage and support them in their walk with the Lord, and hold them accountable to the standard of this walk.  He will help individuals discern their spiritual gifts, challenge them to step up, and deploy them where they will be most effective in ministry.  He will also work with leadership to align ministries so they are effective in helping others follow the Lord. 

Grace Bible Church is not looking for a lead pastor to develop a completely new vision for the church, but rather to model our existing vision, articulate it, and equip us to do it.  Furthermore, we are not looking for a pastor who sees his primary responsibility as preaching sermons; we believe this is an important part of the work that needs to be done, but we must go beyond sermons and put our vision into practice, and we need a shepherd who will guide is in this direction. 

Grace Bible Church is passionate about knowing the Lord, living for Him, and helping others do the same.  We are a non-denominational, congregational church in Elmhurst, Illinois, with approximately 170 people attending our Sunday morning service.  We have a strong core of mature, authentic believers striving to follow the Lord, and a capable, unified team of leaders that include elected church members, an assistant pastor, and a youth pastor.  We have a regular Sunday morning worship service, Sunday School for children and adults, and a large number of ministries that meet during the week.  In addition, Grace Bible Church currently supports 23 missionaries throughout the world.

The Church at Stony Hill is committed to reflecting the goodness of God to our generation by: ministering to the needy, creating space to experience God, offering hope to the disillusioned, working to build community and training future leaders. As a Summer Intern at the Church at Stony Hill you will first and foremost position yourself to help fulfill our mission. As result you will gain invaluable experience in ministry. The internship starts June 2nd and ends August 10th. While our paid intern will bear the burden of more responsibility, both interns will benefit from:  

 

Participating in our Summer Program 

Our Summer Program is split into 2 sessions. The first session is 3 ½ weeks starting June 9th and ending July 2nd. This first session focuses on teaching the children how to make movies. The interns will be responsible for running programs as needed, helping the children develop their storytelling abilities, teaching the values of Christ through an artistic medium, and helping these children discover their unique voices. At the end of the camp, we will be displaying our movie in a theater for the community to watch. 

The 2nd session is split into three 1 week intervals: science, sports, and art. For these three weeks, interns will be responsible for participating in activities as needed, creating and implementing activities for the children, and teaching the values of Christ through discovery, fair play, and beauty.

 

Participating in our Volunteer Programs: Food Pantry/Soup Kitchen and Supervised Visitation 

Our Food Pantry services 60 families in Medina County. Our interns will be responsible for attending our once a month event and visiting and ministering to families who participate in the program. Our interns will also be responsible for assisting with maintaining contact with our volunteers by assisting with training of volunteers and conducting reflection opportunities with our volunteers following our event. 

Our Supervised Visitation program is conducted through the Medina County court system. Every Monday, Friday and Sunday, families in Medina County are privileged to have a safe place where their children can visit with non-residential parents. This program is specifically catered to separated families where the parents do not get along and have been court ordered not to have harmful interactions in front of their child(ren). Our interns will be responsible for gathering volunteers to staff the event and will be expected to attend at least one of the visitations per week.

 

Participating in Sunday Services 

Our interns will be responsible for making phone calls during the week to church members and making at least two visits per week with the Associate Pastor. The interns, if musically inclined, will have the opportunity to participate in the band. The interns will have opportunities to make power point presentations for services. The interns will be asked to participate in sundry other Sunday opportunities contingent upon ability and interest.

 

Participating in our Educational Endeavors 

Our church family meets during the week to discuss the Bible and learn from each other’s insights and experiences. Our Summer Interns will be asked to participate and at times function as the facilitator of this group.

We have one paid and one unpaid internship opportunity. The paid internship’s wages will be based upon ability. If interested, please submit a resume via email to eblower30@gmail.com. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Elijah Blower at 330-239-9858. You can visit our website at www.churchatstonyhill.com
