Christ Community Church (Plainfield, IL) has begun a search for her next Senior Pastor to lead the congregation into a refreshing season of stability and growth. This young congregation of Christ-followers is about three things: Jesus, community, and mission—in that order. CCC is about Jesus because real lasting joy, hope and change is only found in and through Him, about community because Jesus is big enough to bring diverse people together, and about mission because Jesus sends us out to make a positive difference in his name.
CCC awaits a Senior Pastor who loves the Lord, His Church, and His Word, a man of God characterized by authenticity and humility, gifted as a preacher and administrator, mature enough to establish boundaries and raise up co-workers, and distinguished by consistency and dependability. The ideal candidate for this position will have the benefit of previous pastoral experience, be gifted with strong communication skills, be committed to the historic Reformed faith, and will affirm the Bible as the infallible Word of God. The congregation is affiliated with the Christian Reformed Church in North America.
The campus of CCC is located on the northeast side of the family-friendly village of Plainfield and its 40,000 plus residents. The village, located 35 miles southwest of Chicago, is enriched by excellent schools; it is also in close proximity to four hospitals. Downtown Plainfield, which is the heart of the community, is a vibrant, pedestrian-focused destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Plainfield is also home to the Lake Renwick Heron Rookery, numerous historic districts and landmarks, a wonderful park and trail system, and the DuPage River which provides numerous outdoor recreational opportunities.
