Lead Worship Pastor
The Bridge Community Church
|Church or Org Description *|
|Since 1927, God has been using the church at 946 E. Thacker in Des Plaines to reach men, women, and children throughout their community with the gospel. Originally named Bible Faith Church, The Bridge started as a small Sunday school for kids in the neighborhood. Since then, the church has had multiple names and buildings, yet one focus—to reach people with the good news of Jesus Christ and mature followers in their faith.
In 2008, they changed the name to The Bridge Community Church and in 2009 completed a major renovation to their building. Since then, the church has grown from under 200 people to over 1400 people each weekend. They have worked hard to reach their community with the good news of Jesus Christ. In March of 2018, The Bridge opened their second location, and in September of 2019, they will launch their third location in Chicago, merging with a historic church that is looking to be reenergized and revitalized.
This live-giving church is believing God for tremendous fruit and influence as they point their community towards the hope of Jesus. They’re raising their sail as high as possible to catch the wind God is blowing.
|Position Description *|
|The culture of the worship ministry team at The Bridge is very healthy. They have been led for several years by Brian Nelson who was also serving as the Executive Pastor. As The Bridge has grown and implemented a multi-site model, the need for Brian to hand off the worship ministry leadership has grown in order for him to fully lean into his role as XP. Brian has done an exceptional job of raising leaders and developing a culture of worship.
That being said, it’s important that The Bridge finds a committed, invested, spiritual and musical leader who will build, train, develop and disciple worshippers. They desire a leader who is passionate about team building and possesses a communication style that speaks life into people, bringing out the best in them. This leader will bring oversight, management, and visionary leadership to the The Bridge Worship & Technical Ministry. They will regularly serve as a worship leader for weekend gatherings.
This new leader will also oversee additional Worship and Technical Staff including a full-time Production Director, Assoc. Worship Leader, and Creative Director while exploring opportunities for internships and residencies for younger leaders.
