About the job
ResCov is an urban church in Chicago made up of people who care deeply about the church community, growing in their faith, and living it out through ministries to the wider community. We are companions of all who desire to follow Christ and welcome all to participate fully in our life together without limitation, regardless of age, ethnicity, race, national origin, physical or mental ability, economic status, education, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or station in life. We offer full pastoral care to all, including (but not limited to) prayer, visitation during illness, spiritual counsel, weddings, funerals, and baptisms.
Children are an essential and an active part of the church, including their voices, presence, and participation in worship. Worship and liturgy are greatly valued as is the weekly celebration of communion. Questions and doubts are a welcome part of the church, and humility and transparency reflected in the pulpit are desired. The church desires to grow and be challenged spiritually especially as we live out our faith in the wider community. We live by “For God’s glory and neighbor’s good.” We desire our lead pastor to love and reflect Jesus, to lead with a strong sense of vision, and to work collaboratively with other staff as well as congregational leadership. We are a church who enjoys worshiping together and fellowshipping with one another as we grow in our faith and service.
