Job Description:

The Slingshot Group is partnering with Glen Ellyn Bible Church (GEBC) in search of a Worship Pastor to join the team.  


Glen Ellyn Bible Church is a dynamic body of believers that is touching the Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn.  It is a thriving, non-denominational community of over 600 adults, 125 teenagers and 200 kids that are making a significant impact in the local community.


Located in the quaint “Mayberry-esque” village of Glen Ellyn, GEBC is just steps away from local restaurants and shops.  The church campus reflects the spirit of the historic buildings and tree-lined streets of the neighborhood.   Once inside the church building, it is apparent that GEBC is a family church.  With updated spaces for children and student ministries, along with a newly remodeled worship center stage, Glen Ellyn Bible Church is not only a place with a rich heritage but a place where vision and fresh ministry initiatives are making an impact in this affluent Chicago suburb.


What was once a traditional approach to church at GEBC, is now a contemporary/modern worship experience. The two Sunday services are currently well-planned and themed around the message; and, are supported by a creative team that works hard to be intentional as they plan service details.  Lighting, stage design, and screen content reflect the church’s commitment to share the timeless message of the gospel in ways that speak to today’s culture.


Glen Ellyn Bible Church is located in Glen Ellyn, one of the most desirable suburbs of Chicago.  Its 27,000 residents are mostly highly educated, Caucasian families.  The town has the appearance of a New England village with its architecture, trees, horse trough, and train station.  It is a residential/business/retail community with virtually no industry.  Glen Ellyn is situated around beautiful Lake Ellyn, a popular place for ice-skating, fishing, and picnics.  Being only 23 miles from Chicago, residents of Glen Ellyn can experience the best of both worlds—from the charm of a New England-style village, to all the amenities of a large metropolitan area including sports, restaurants, arts, recreation, and shopping.


Glen Ellyn Bible Church is a thriving church, known for its strong Bible teaching, commitment to the family, and desire to reach their “village” with the gospel of Jesus Christ. GEBC is a place that values worship, and is poised and ready for strong leadership that can take them on meaningful and engaging journeys of worship each week.


The next Worship Pastor will enjoy the opportunity to take Glen Ellyn Bible Church to new places in worship.  He/she will be able to thrive in an environment where collaboration is valued and where future potential can be realized.  They will also have the privilege of serving alongside a team of highly competent staff and volunteers.


For the last 11 years, GEBC has been led by Senior Pastor, Kelly Brady, who served the church previously as the Student Ministries Pastor and Family Life Pastor.  His practical Bible teaching has played a significant role in the growth at the church; and, his humble, no-nonsense approach to doing ministry has influenced the church to become a place of grace and hope.   It is truly a place that is called to reach the lost and grow followers of Christ.


While it already has a distinct voice in the community, there is a passion to increase that voice and have a greater impact on those who don’t yet know Christ.   


The next leader will not only have excellent musical, vocal and leadership skills, but will have the ability to create and facilitate authentic and engaging worship experiences in all services; and, this modern worship leader will play a critical role in overseeing the entire worship ministry.
