We are a welcoming and non-traditional congregation of approximately 120 people from all

God’s grace through faith, repentance and baptism; the Bible as the inspired word of God; and
the promise of eternal life with God.
The church is located in the central Illinois twin cities of Bloomington-Normal. The area is a
diverse and growing community of approximately 130,000 people. It features a thriving

children and families, including a robust parks system.
We are seeking a minister of proven character, with a vital, spirit-filled walk with Jesus Christ.
The individual should be well-grounded in the Restoration movement, with a record of soul-
winning (evangelism); solid, Bible-based preaching; and strong written and verbal
communication skills. A minimum of a bachelor’s degree in a Bible-related field (or equivalent
experience) is preferred.
