Job Description:


Since moving from a team that paired strangers together in groups (and hoping they would stick) to a team that (1) creates environments where strangers form friendships that lead to discipleship in living rooms and (2) empowers anyone to pick up curriculum and do a group with their family and friends, Parkview has experienced significant growth in our Small Groups ministry.


Today, Parkview is a church that views small groups as one of the most significant parts of our ministry. We now have more than 2,000 small groups meeting throughout our community. Just this year, 500 brand new hosts opened their homes as part of our Spring launch.


We are currently searching for a Central Director/Pastor of Small Groups to lead this thriving ministry into its next season of growth and development.


Our Small Groups strategy relies on medium-sized environments (parties, on-campus Bible Studies, spiritual formation classes, volunteer teams) to establish relationships. Then, when people choose to form small groups, they are equipped and encouraged to grow into people who look more like Jesus.


We have seen God move in incredible ways. Our biggest wins have been people forming small groups with their unchurched neighbors. We consider our small groups successful when families begin talking about faith for the first time or when life-long friendships begin to form. One of the most unique aspects of Parkview's Small Groups ministry is its passion for making Jesus and community accessible to anyone, no matter where they are on their journey. 


Parkview Christian Church is an exciting, growing, multi-site church with campuses in Orland Park, Homer Glen, and (opening Christmas of 2016) New Lenox, IL. There’s no doubt that God is doing something extraordinary in our midst. More than just numeric growth, however, we’re seeing lives radically transformed. Parkview is a place where anyone - regardless of their story - can take their next step toward Jesus.
