(Protestia) It’s a blow for Willow Creek, the multi-campus 10,000-member church founded by Bill Hybels that pioneered the church growth and seeker-sensitive movement but has seen its fortunes over the years as it hemorrhaged money, people, and reputation.
Their losses began in 2018, the same year they purchased and moved into their Chicago location, after allegations of decades of sexual misconduct came forth against Hybels. These allegations included inviting women to his hotel room, making suggestive comments to female employees, extended hugs, kissing a woman against her will, and engaging in oral sex with an employee, leading Hybels to resign, along with the co-pastors who succeeded him, and then eventually the entire elder board.
They held massive staff layoffs in 2019 and 2020. When Covid-19 hit, Willow Creek completely shut down in-person gatherings for almost a year. When they did reopen, they did so at 25% capacity and mandatory masks for 2-year-olds and above.
