Northbrook Baptist Church

Worship Pastor


Why I Love This Opportunity

Mike Haight


Northbrook is in a healthy growth pattern and has recently established a more clearly defined vision and mission for the future. The people here are excited! They are adding new members regularly, and new mission partnerships are forming. They have also established a clear pathway for discipleship and are developing new leaders in their faith. This is an excellent opportunity for a visionary and relational leader to continue building a healthy culture of worship leadership while working alongside an exceptional team.

About This Organization

Northbrook’s mission is “equipping the religiously saturated to become kingdom investors.” This church is strategically positioning itself as an equipping church in a region saturated by cultural Christianity. Their vision for the next six years is to redesign Northbrook as a regional compass where people from every stage in life are cultivating their personal calling to achieve maximum impact for God’s kingdom. Since the beginning, Northbrook’s doors have been open to people of every background and place in their spiritual journey. Still, in this new season, they intentionally focus on creatively inspiring, faithfully equipping, and generously investing in a pipeline of next-generation leaders to see them redeemed, developed, and deployed for the kingdom.

Northbrook has a very relaxed and casual environment; about 500 people gather here each weekend. The worship services are contemporary in style, gospel-centered in content, and Bible-saturated in the programming approach. They like to sing modern worship songs that are theologically faithful and centered on who God is, what Christ has done, and who we are in Christ. Scripture readings are incorporated throughout the service. Overall, they value authenticity and truth over attraction and atmosphere.
