Job Description:

History and personality of HBC of Rockford, IL

Harvest Bible Chapel in Rockford is a 13 year old church plant from Harvest Bible Chapel Fellowship, a ministry of the parent church, Harvest Bible Chapel in Rolling Meadows, IL. Our church is conservative in theology and aggressive in reaching people for Christ.  Sunday AM services would include preaching for 40-45 minutes, worship led by a band, and occasional videos that enhance the aims of Sunday AM. Our passion is to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and spread that passion to our city and to the nations. Church planting is in our blood. We have sent a church planter from our church body to the Czech Republic in 2012   and a second one to India in 2013.   Our current attendance is approximately 750. In August of this year, we finished an expansion to our facility which doubled our size to a total of 32,000 square feet.  We added children/student space, a gym, and office space.  A good portion of our church is comprised of young families so that approximately 200 of the 750 are kids aged 0 - 5th grade.  Currently, our ministry to children happens on Sunday AM exclusively. We would like to have someone on staff that can help us strategize how to reach this city for Christ through a ministry to children/families.
