Bi-Vocational Pastor - Emmanuel Church

Three Rivers Baptist Association | Sandwich, IL

Posted Date 11/15/2023

Due to the retirement of our greatly loved Pastor, we have an amazing opportunity for the right person to become the Pastor of a small town Southern Baptist Church. About an hour west Chicago, Sandwich Illinois is a wonderful place to raise children. We have a great relationship with our local schools. The church has grown in the past 5 years, has a great building and is debt free. We sponsor several community events each year including a food giveaway that reaches more than 500 families, a Community Christmas dinner and concert and a “Celebrate America” patriotic concert in July.

Though we are a small church, there is great potential for the Lord’s choice of a leader. We are very active in Missions and for years have a sent team to Mission Serve. Evangelism and discipleship is the heartbeat of our church. Disaster Relief involvement is important to us as well. The salary is negotiable. We are open to our pastor being bi-vocational if he deems necessary.

Thanks for checking us out. We are a loving and growing congregation reaching the Sandwich (Plano, Yorkville, Newark, Millington etc) area with the Gospel. We are an active church in Illinois Disaster Relief and World Changers. On any given Sunday in summer you could find people dressed casual in shorts and T-shirts or dresses and ties. But the most important thing you'll find them in is: CHURCH! (And that's a good thing!) Our Sunday service is geared for life change (no deep Greek or Hebrew teaching here!). But in Bible study, well that's a different situation. We are all for applying Biblical truth to your everyday circumstance. It's kind of like looking in the mirror and seeing ourselves as God sees us, warts and all! So whether you are looking for a church as a senior citizen, a family looking for children and youth programs or just curious to find the friendliest, most exciting church in the area, this is the end of your search! So all that said... I hope to see you Sunday!
