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.
