Love God, Grow Together, Reach the World

    Employment

    Located 30 miles west of Chicago, Wheaton Bible Church is a non-denominational church of 4,000 people gathering in English and Spanish speaking congregations.

    For over 85 years, our church has responded to the call to love God, grow together, and reach the world. We have followed Jesus, and the stories that God has written in and through our church are remarkable. We are a Gospel-driven, mission-focused church with a large local and global presence. Our commitment to the Gospel, to the Word of God, and to discipleship has been the foundation of our church and continues to shape our vision.

    Today we believe God has given us a holy restlessness to follow Jesus more fully, and a renewed sense of urgency to embrace the Great Commission, to love our neighbors, share our personal faith stories, and to tell the Gospel story. Our vision is simply to be compelled by His love—to be the Church and to make disciples who themselves will make disciples, both here and around the world.
