Director of Nazarene Recreation – SW suburbs of Chicago
Chicago First Church of the Nazarene- Nazarene Recreation
Nazarene Recreation has been a fixture in Lemont/Homer/Orland Park since the mid-1970’s.
Tens of thousands of kids have put on their Naz Rec t-shirt and have played soccer, t-ball,
basketball, and more on our fields and in our gyms. This is a ministry of Chicago First Church
of the Nazarene, a congregation that is reaching its community with the life-changing hope of the Gospel. NazRec is a doorway to make a connection and take a first step in partnering
with parents to #helpingparentswin.
Chicago First’s values are Faith, Family, Friendship and Farther Along. Expressions of these
values are lived out in ministries that are contemporary and creative. This ministry had over 4,000 registrations in 2018, with nearly 2,000 individual children registering to play in leagues. The focus is on children 3-8 years old along with a club soccer program through the early teens. The annual impact is a connection with over 7,000 people. This well-established ministry is seeking a new Director to take NazRec to the next level. We are open to changes that will keep this ministry viable and meeting the needs in our community.
NazRec’s next Director will join a team of committed staff members who work together to
make an impact in our local community, around Chicagoland and the world. NazRec is
healthy, growing and poised for greater impact.
Director serves as the visionary force and face of NazRec to both the community and
congregation. Pay is based on a full-time role with 40-45 hours per week along with expected
involvement as part of the staff and family of C1. Wages are commensurate with experience
along with full benefit package.
Candidate must be a Christ-follower and in harmony with the beliefs and standards of
Chicago First Church of the Nazarene. References should include a pastor from the church
attending. Position reports to the Executive Pastor.
All interested candidates, please send questions or submit resumes to Executive Pastor, Phil
Kizzee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
