Why We Love This Opportunity *

This is an incredible opportunity to help lead a high impact and influential church into the preferable future

Church or Org Description *

Harvest Bible Chapel is a church that seeks the vertical, full expression of God’s glory. Harvest Bible Chapel is going after high-impact, window-rattling, life-altering worship services and discipleship ministry that gives glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Harvest Bible Chapel is one church on seven campuses with one purpose: bring glory to God. And our story is still being written, as He continues to change lives by His Spirit through our ministries and people.

Today Harvest Bible Chapel is a family of thousands, with Christ-adoring worshipers on multiple campuses throughout Chicagoland. Harvest Bible Chapel started as a group of 18 people, who gathered from five different churches across the northwest suburbs and desired to form a new church. Together, they developed a vision for the church, which grew into the Five Pillars—Unapologetic Preaching, Unashamed Adoration, Unceasing Prayer, Unafraid Witness, and Unconditional Love.
