Director of Discipleship & Community Life, Midwest US
We are working with a Gospel-driven church north of Chicago, IL as they seek a  Director of Discipleship & Community Life to develop and implement strategies that (1) lead the church into ever-deepening relationship with Jesus and, (2) are aimed at creating better disciple makers.

The growing church has a rich history in the community with around 1,000 gathering weekly for worship, teaching and prayer. There is an outreach focus, and an intense desire to become disciple makers.

Here are some of the responsibilities of the position:

  • Develop and implement a holistic discipleship plan
  • Develop venues and resources that serve as a pathway toward spiritual maturity - emphasis on equipping and secondarily community
  • Oversee the Life Group ministry - emphasis on community and secondarily equipping, worship and mission
  • Oversee men’s and women’s ministries - emphasis on connection for discipleship and spiritual care
  • Oversee the assimilation process
  • Develop strategies to help the community understand and exercise their spiritual gifts


The rest of your responsibilities fall into these areas: Administration of the department, staff responsibilities and pastoral care responsibilities.

The main requirements we must insist upon are:

  • Leadership gift
  • Experiential knowledge of the spiritual disciplines and discipleship
  • Seminary degree
  • Church staff experience. Preference for 5 years plus, larger church setting


It seems reasonable that you would be able to articulate your history of personal disciples you have led, effective teaching you have done, experience with small group models you have implemented and teams you have led. It should also be clear that you are theologically oriented and that you are able to have deeper level conversations about spiritual issues, systems for discipleship and “getting things done” in a larger church setting.

This summary is not comprehensive, but it is designed to give you a taste of what the church and the position are about. If you are reading this and responding strongly to the opportunity, you should let us know. Full details are available to you after an initial discussion with The Shepherd’s Staff.
