We are currently looking for a minister with a vibrant personal faith in Jesus Christ who bases preaching & teaching on the Scriptures. We are praying for God to provide for us a candidate with an evident passion for pastoral ministry who can serve our senior members and will assist us in thinking outside of our own box to help us introduce the love of Jesus to the 20,000 or so people in our county of 50,000+ who are not affiliated with any church.
Atkinson Congregational Church was established in 1863. We meet in a beautiful 104 year old building that is very solid & in good repair with no parsonage. The congregation currently consists of about 50 members.
Atkinson is a small town in a rural setting in the North East corner of Henry County IL with several other small towns nearby. The location adjacent to Interstate 80 allows quick access to the metropolitan Quad City area on the Iowa & Illinois border to the West and to the East a 2 to 2½ hour drive to Chicago or 1 ½ hour drive South East to Peoria IL.
We are part of the consolidated Geneseo, IL school District 228 which enables & encourages students to move beyond the basics to embrace super skills for the 21st Century; the 4 C’s – Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration,, & Creativity.
