The Senior Pastor Search

In January 2019, our newly installed Elder Board began a search process to find a new senior pastor for Willow Creek Community Church. The Board designated a search firm to work alongside them in the process, enlisting the help of congregants and staff to help shape the role and responsibilities.

In January 2020, valuing the process over pace, the Elder Board chose to extend the search process and asked Ray Johnston from Bayside Church to serve as interim senior pastor. They are committed to being prayerful and united in the selection, trusting God to guide this decision. Click here to learn more about the process.
