Job Description:

Snapshot of Glen Ellyn Bible Church
Glen Ellyn Bible is a community of people seeking to learn what it means to follow and be transformed by God through a relationship with Jesus. We take care of our members and guests alike with programs for all ages built for them.  At Glen Ellyn Bible Church, our goal is to make Disciples of Jesus.
We engage in four activities to develop the eight attributes of disciples who glorify God and enjoy Him forever:

  • Proclaiming the Gospel (Romans 10:14) We proclaim that salvation is by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ and call all people to live lives of worship.
  • Restoring the Broken (Galatians 6:1-2) People are restored primarily through their dependence upon the Holy Spirit and a connection in fellowship with other believers.
  • Equipping the Believer (Ephesians 4:11-13) Believers are equipped through God’s Word for obedience and called to lives of service using their spiritual gifts.
  • Sending out Disciples (Matthew 28:18-20) Disciples are a people sent out.  We are to pursue the lost intentionally and love others selflessly.

Although not necessarily thought to be an exhaustive list, the Elders of GEBC have identified these four activities modeled by Jesus and embraced by the early church that are essential to the disciple making effort.  Our programming at GEBC revolves around these four activities
