Village Church seeks to fill ministry positions

Two valuable staff people are stepping down in the next months. Susan Eclov will retire from her position as Worship Ministries Director as of June 1. Pastor Michael Mauriello will step down on Aug. 31 in order to complete his Ph.D. We have created three positions to replace them and to strengthen our ministries: a full-time Associate Pastor, a part-time Worship Ministries Director (12-15 hrs per week) and a part-time Children’s Ministries Director (10-12 hours per week). Senior Pastor Lee Eclov will continue to anchor the staff as he has done for 18 years.

If you are interested, submit a cover letter describing your interest and thoughts about being a possible match to our needs, along with your resume and send to the Search Committee Chair indicated. If you have questions, feel free to email for more information. If a phone call is in order, we’ll arrange that.

Village Church of Lincolnshire is a unique congregation. We are located in a fascinating community in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Our church is multi-generational and international. It is constantly changing, often with 20% turnover in a year. We are relatively small—about 200 in attendance—which has given us a wonderful sense of community. In fact, the one word that best describes our ministry identity is home. That identity is the basis for all our ministries.

Our church is healthy. We have strong, wise leaders. Our corporate prayer is strong. We are working to be effective in personal and congregational outreach. We worship thoughtfully and creatively. We highly value our Growth Groups. We are personal. We know one another’s names.

Frankly, we believe that the privilege of serving this church is a gift and a high privilege. All our ministries are multiplied because of the constant stream of Trinity students whom we love, mentor, and send out to serve Jesus in places all over the world.

If you see yourself as perhaps being a good fit for our needs here, we would welcome your application.
