WHY BROADVIEW BAPTIST?
We are a community church nestled in a near western suburb of Chicago in Broadview, IL about 10 miles from downtown. We have approximately 1700 members, of varied range of ages, but an aging congregation with a love and desire to serve. We have active Sunday and Vacation Bible School programs. Weekly Prayer service and Bible Study are held in both afternoon and evenings to meet the needs of those with varied work and life schedules. With over 30 ministries, our programs are always intentional and with a Christian focus. We strive to develop programs with new and exciting ways to learn about the Lord.
As one of the few churches in the area that still has Sunday evening service, you can be sure to hear the word of God preached.
If you believe that the Lord has called you, or if you are aware of someone who desires to continue the work for His kingdom as a servant leader, then BMBC could be the perfect place to live out this calling in service to the Lord. Consider this a personal invitation to explore the possibility of leadership at Broadview Baptist.
