Job Description:
Welcome to Christ Community Church a multi-site church with locations in St. Charles, Bartlett, DeKalb and Blackberry Creek, Illinois where our desire is to do the best job possible of Loving God and Loving people. Jesus shared that these are the two most important commands in Scripture.

In order to accomplish our goal, we put great emphasis on four key values. The first is Belonging. Whether you are a spiritual seeker, who is just beginning to investigate a personal relationship with God or a committed follower of Jesus Christ, there is a place for you at Christ Community Church. Although, we are a large church, hundreds of Community Groups offer the opportunity to experience intimate friendships.

A second key value is Growing. You'll find that the Bible is taught here in a way that is relevant to your every-day life. Heart-felt worship, will move you closer to God. Interaction with others, who are pursuing God will stimulate your own spiritual growth.

Serving is a third key value. There are dozens of serving opportunities to become involved with, at Christ Community Church, that will tap the unique gifts and abilities that God has given to you. And beyond our walls, we are serving alongside ministry partners who are reaching out to those that are: poor, unwed mothers, behind bars, elderly and people with needs.

Finally, we are a church that values Reaching. We want to reach out to friends and neighbors who are looking, for a personal relationship with God. And we want our reach to extend around the world, so we are working with partners in places like Bangladesh, Sierra Leone and the Czech Republic.

If Christ Community Church sounds like an exciting place - that's because it is!
