Stillman Valley, IL 61084
About the job
Kishwaukee Church is a part of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC), a denomination with roots in the Reformation. Our full theological statement is in the Westminster Confession and Catechisms.
We believe our lives as Christians should focus on what unites us. The center of our ministry is not our theological distinctives but the core truths of the gospel. It is the gospel of Jesus Christ that unites us and that we ask our members to believe.
Our vision is that we would be living to glorify God by…
- Finding new life in the gospel of Jesus
- Learning to live rooted in grace
- Being renewed in our life together
- Working to bring life to the world
- Word-centered preaching/teaching of biblically sound doctrine that engages the congregation
- Passionate about the gospel while cultivating a deeper relationship with Christ and love for others
- Effective leader that works well with others and helps others develop leadership abilities
- Compassionate, caring and sensitive in ministering to the needs of the congregation
- A desire to shepherd the congregation helping them grow in their faith to further strengthen and build Christ’s church
We are looking forward, trusting in God’s plan that He now has someone to shepherd us in a new season of ministry. We believe Kishwaukee and the surrounding communities have much to offer, so we thank you for your time and prayerful consideration of this position.
As a brief summary of who we are, Kishwaukee has a deep and rich heritage of faithful believers who have served, discipled, and ministered within our local communities for over 175 years. We are situated in a rural setting 10 miles from Rockford, the fifth largest city in Illinois.
Our church has remained steadfast throughout its history in unabashedly proclaiming the truth of God’s Word with a heart for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have been blessed through the years with a focus on reformed biblical preaching in worship and discipleship. Our church and communities tend to be strongly family oriented but more importantly, as the body of Christ, we recognize we are a family of families
