CHURCH DESCRIPTION:
Fox Valley Christian Church is a multi-generational Church with an emphasis on reaching and growing young families. We envision a Church where every member is a missionary: at home, at work, in the community, and beyond. Because of this, we are on a mission to know God personally and to make Him known.

FVCC is positioned in an area with tremendous outreach potential. Ignite Church Planting calls the area the Randall Road Corridor, “this section of the region, stretching from Aurora to Elgin, has over 200,000 people living in four cities. This presents us with 150,000 who are unreached.”

FVCC is a financially stable Church, thanks to The Solomon Foundation. We experienced the emotional and mental stress of our financial burden, but after being set free from this burden by The Solomon Foundation, we are now positioned to lead our members from surviving to thriving and we are excited about what that means for FVCC going forward.
We have strong relationships with organizations like The Solomon Foundation, Ignite Church Planting, and E2 Elders. All of which are fueling the momentum of our next steps. Because of this, we are looking for someone that is not only passionate about ministry, but that has a contagious passion about reaching into the community and making God known.

KEY ATTRIBUTES: 
  • A committed follower of Christ that is continually drawing closer to God through the spiritual disciplines.
  • A disciple maker that leads others into a personal relationship with God.
  • A missionary, passionate about making God known, and a strong desire to build bridges into the community.
  • An emotionally and relationally mature individual who is prepared for the highs and lows of ministry.

KEY EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS: 
  • Agreement with the ideals and doctrines normally embraced within the Christian Churches/Churches of Christ.
  • Possesses vision, creativity, and enthusiasm to build a worship ministry.
  • Exhibits the vision and passion to use the creative arts to lead people to know and glorify God.
