Leadership and Staff

Elder and Staff Leadership Team
Glen Ellyn Bible Church (GEBC) is an Elder led and staff driven church. The term “Elder” can sound strange to our 21st century ears, but it is a biblical word that describes the highest level of leadership within the local church. The GEBC Elder board is made of up of nine men who are elected by the congregation and are charged with cultivating and casting vision, as well as overseeing caregiving and the teaching ministries of the church. The senior pastor, Kelly Brady, is the only Elder who also serves as a paid staff member.

The staff of GEBC are a group of passionate and gifted women and men charged with strategically implementing the church’s vision. Their primary task is to recruit, equip and empower volunteers to do the work of the church’s ministries. Our staff’s greatest joy is to share in ministry with the people of GEBC.
