About MCF
Meadows Christian Fellowship has been ministering to Rolling Meadows and the surrounding communities for 65 years. Our mission is to help people know, love, and become like Jesus Christ. Over the past three years, we have been on a journey to sharpen our focus on God’s movement of kingdom multiplication with a disciple-making mindset. We believe this is a season of new beginnings.

Our Church and Community                                                                                                              Rolling Meadows is a racially, socially, and economically diverse city of just over 25,000 people in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. World-class everything is just minutes away. Here in town, we have three elementary schools, a junior high school that is literally in our backyard, and a high school with an outstanding football team. Oh, we also have a new development of 111 townhomes right next door to our property. The opportunities for life and ministry are abundant.

Our fellowship averages 130 people on a Sunday. We have space for more. We have a large building with a gymnasium that sits on 4.5 acres. We are debt-free and committed to staying that way. We have partnered with a Mandarin-speaking Chinese congregation for over 40 years. We once had a Spanish-speaking congregation and dream of having one again. We have had a long-standing Awana program, a super-creative week-long summer arts and music camp for kids K–12 called Inspiration Studio, and a summer car show that is one of the biggest around.
But with the reality of life in 2020, there’s not much going on right now.

We believe the COVID pandemic has given us a chance to slow down and evaluate. As leaders, we see this as an opportunity to focus on equipping our local body to be more effective and passionate disciple-making-disciples.

Associate Pastor of Youth and Children’s Ministry
To move forward well, we are looking for an Associate Pastor of Youth and Children’s Ministry.
Thirty-five of the cutest kids attend our church regularly. Our youth ministry consists of students from church families and neighborhood students who have found a home in our groups.
We are praying for candidates who have a strong vision and passion for a coordinated disciple-making ministry from birth to graduation. We are also praying for candidates who can develop and equip leaders within our congregation to do the work of ministry together.

If you feel intrigued by our church and are passionate about helping make disciples of children and youth throughout their development, we would love to talk with you. Inquire by email at jobs@meadowsfamily.org.

Life Church started from scratch 7 years ago with no money, no people, no facility, and no clue.

Last year we were recognized as the 11th Fastest-Growing Church in America by Outreach Magazine + LifeWay Research.

///

We’re just a bunch of nobodies trying to tell everybody about Somebody.

Our lead pastor is a former comedian turned author and church start-up specialist.

///

We’re adding a full-time Worship + Digital Arts position to our team.

If your flavor is Hillsong United, Jesus Culture, and a dash of Jeff Deyo (sorry, no Bethel), you might be the right fit.

We’re looking for a strong worship entrepeneur, someone who is completely sold-out for Jesus, gets jacked up excited when lost people become found, and who thrives in fast-changing environments.

This position requires you to be:

– Solid in your theology but not angry about it
– Passionate about making Jesus famous
– A person of honor and integrity (1 Timothy 3, Titus 1)
– Most-likely an “I” on the DISC
– Cool with making silly videos
– Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound
– Track record of strengthening teams of volunteers/pouring into people
– Understands Apple / Wirestream / Adobe Suite
– Passionate about the Book of Leviticus. Like, we want you to have memorized it, including the liner study notes.
– Able to laugh at random Princess Bride movie quotes
– This person would be working closely with our lead pastor.

This isn’t about “getting a job,” it’s about doing life together on a labor-of-love and joining in with what God has so obviously been doing in our region.

Interested?
