Job Description


Harvest Bible Chapel in Rockford (church name from 2003-2020) was launched in March of 2003 after months of prayer and preparation by approximately 25 men and women committed to planting a new church in this city. As of October 2007, the congregation moved from meeting in a local high-school to purchasing a building and property located on 5501 Windsor Road in Loves Park, a suburb of Rockford. In July of 2020, the church officially changed its name to Redeemer Church.

In coming to Redeemer, you will find people who are thirsty for God, who seek to know Him through careful study of the Word of God by the illuminating power of the Holy Spirit. You will see people who are filled with worship in their hearts and desirous to express it to God in song. You will see a happy marriage between freedom in worship and rigorous Bible study.
