Music Director Search

Are you an experienced church musician or do you know someone who is?

Then take a look at the attached job description! Jonathan Oblander, our gifted music director is moving out of the country opening up the position of Director of Music at Good Shepherd. Jonathan, who held the position for over 5 years, would tell you that this is a great place to work. We know that God has great plans for the future of our music program. Maybe they include you or someone you know.

Worship on the Move

The Randolph Street building is now a fire remediation site. We have moved operations temporarily to the First Baptist Church, 820 Ontario Street, Oak Park. Entrances are directly across from Scoville Park. The sanctuary is on the second floor. We ask that you leave parking directly in front of First Baptist for their congregation, unless you have ability issues. Parking is available in the Public Garage at 720 North Blvd. by the Green line elevated train. Wait at the elevator lobby for a shuttle if needed.

Education Hour at 9am and Worship at 10:30 am.
