Position: Lead Pastor
Overview of Church & Community
Located in Shorewood, IL, a southwest suburb of Chicago, Pathway Church is a non-denominational, charismatic congregation affiliated with the Fellowship of Christian Assemblies. We value authentic relationships and put our trust in the Gospel of Jesus Christ for our eternal salvation.
We are a family-friendly community that has grown from our roots as a home church in our founding pastor’s farmhouse, to its current location, a scenic five-acre property surrounded by a forest preserve near the DuPage River.
The four pillars of Pathway Church are Follow, Connect, Discover and Serve. We value being a place where people are discovering who Jesus Christ really is by following the commands of Jesus, connecting with other believers, discovering our spiritual gifts and serving the community.
We place a strong value on the connection and empowerment that comes from healthy families and encourage this culture by offering a variety of classes and small groups, in addition to our regular church gatherings, all complete with sound Biblical teaching and worship. We are actively seeking the Lord for fresh strategies to reach younger individuals and families.
We believe in the five-fold ministry model, outlined in Ephesians 4:11-12, in which the five spiritual gifts are used to equip the saints to perform the work of the ministry.
Our Present Situation
Our current lead pastor has served Pathway Church for over fifteen years. He has now moved to part-time status as pastor as he has recently started to serve part-time as a chaplain for Corporate Chaplains of America (CCA). His time with CCA will be gradually increasing to full-time service, so we anticipate the transition period to be 6-12 months. Our prayerful path is to hire a lead pastor who will work alongside our current pastor during this transition period.
A parsonage is available on our property for the new, incoming pastor and his family, with a housing allowance possibly becoming available at a later date, as funding becomes available, that will enable the pastor to purchase his own home.
