Community Presbyterian Church (CPC) is a 200 member church located in the Western suburbs of Chicago. The church has been serving the Lombard – Villa Park and surrounding area for over 60 years. We have a rich history of community service and outreach.

We are searching for a full time Interim Senior Pastor / Head of Staff as our beloved pastor of the past 17 years is leaving due to disability.

The mission statement of our church is: “Reach People for Christ, Grow People in Christ, and Send People with Christ.” The church currently has two Sunday morning services, one traditional and one contemporary (8:30 and 11:00), with an adult education program from 10-11 a.m. The church has one combined service in summer months. Children’s Sunday school is held at both 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

CPC is an active church with committed Session, Trustee and Deacon Boards. We have a preschool, The Growing Place, which serves 130 children. Additional outreach opportunities include numerous free programs for the children and families in the community. These include Wednesday after school programs for age 4-fifth grade, as well as pumpkin carving, trunk or treat, Living Nativity, an Easter Egg Hunt, Movie and Parent Nights Out, among other activities. We have small but active Middle School and High School youth groups, as well as opportunities for women’s, men’s, and family fellowship.

The congregation consists of members of all ages with a significant graying population. A Senior ministry serves this population. We are a financially stable church with no outstanding debt. The position will manage four full time staff and several part time staff.
