Church Overview:

Christ Community Church is a strong family of faith following hard after Jesus by glorifying God in regular collective worship gatherings, active small groups, and by loving our city well through actively open doors of service and evangelism. CCC is an eight-year-old church planting initiative in the heart of Dearborn, MI that, by God’s grace, became a self-governing, self-sustaining local church in May 2021. The membership currently stands at 36 with several additional individuals and families in regular attendance.

CCC strives to be a church where believers are shepherded well as they are equipped to reach their city and world for Christ. CCC regards itself as “God’s people on God’s mission for God’s glory.” God’s People refers to CCC’s members: faithful believers who find their first identity in Christ and have covenanted with CCC as their local church. On God’s Mission refers to the work of all Christ’s disciples in making disciples of their children, neighbors, and all nations (Act 2:38-39) both at home and abroad (Mat 28:18-20; Act 1:8). For God’s Glory refers to that for which we were created and are destined: spreading God’s glory as worshiping image-bearers in Spirit and Truth in the name of Jesus Christ (Gen 1:26-28; John 4:23; Phi 2:9-11; Rev 5:13-14).

City Overview:

CCC is located in the heart of Dearborn, MI, a healthy and vibrant urban/suburban city bordering Detroit. Dearborn has gained attention across the nation for being home to the most densely-settled Muslim community in the USA. This is accurate, but also only part of a very diverse picture. Our Middle Eastern neighbors reflect many sects within Isalm, other religions, and numerous countries of origin. Dearborn itself includes a very large and active multi-ethnic Roman Catholic community. Additionally, our city is seeing the growth of several smaller ethno-cultural communities such as Latin-Americans, Asian-Americans, Indian-Americans, African-Americans and a diverse international university student population attending four campuses in and around Dearborn.

It is CCC’s conviction that good stewardship of the gospel through proclamation and relational evangelism should result in a vibrant congregation of believers who reflect these diverse demographics. If we love all our neighbors well with the gospel we should see our congregation begin to resemble our city’s demographic make-up. This conviction is informed by the Scripture’s anticipation and description of the Church according to God’s redemptive-historical plan culminating with the uniting of all things in Christ (Eph 1:9-10) including the uniting of the nations within the Body of Jesus Christ (Gen 12:3; Isa 56:3-8; Act 2:5-11; Eph 2:11-22; Rev 7:9).

Job Overview:

 Beyond the clear biblical requirements for an elder as outlined in the New Testament, Christ Community Church is seeking a purpose filled and nations minded man to to serve alongside and lead as full time Lead Pastor.

  • Knowing the flock: nurture personal relationships with the flock
  • Feeding the flock: feed the members & equip lay leaders with the Word so that thinking and lives are shaped by the Gospel. This will require a continual growth in sound hermeneutical principles for Scripture interpretation for preaching, teaching, counseling, and decision-making.

  • Guarding the flock: morally & doctrinally guard the hearts of the members.

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.
