Willow Creek is a church committed to loving everyone, always and extending the hope and grace of Jesus to our neighbors near and far. We are one church with multiple locations, here to help you grow with God and with others.
Willow is led by a team of pastors who are here to serve you and our community. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here!
Throughout the New Testament, principles of church leadership point to a central theme: plurality. We believes churches are best led with multiple leaders and good systems of accountability. Our Elder Board is a team of volunteers who provide spiritual oversight, direction, and leadership for the church. They entrust the implementation of that direction to ministry leaders and staff, under the leadership of the senior pastor. This system of organizational leadership, known as Policy Governance, allows the Elders to focus their gifts and time on their biblical mandate to lead and shepherd the church, while allowing ministry leaders (staff) the opportunity to maximize their gifts and talents as they lead their ministries and make practical decisions on how to implement and carry out the direction provided by the Elders. Learn more about our Elders and Policy Governance here.
