about our history

Our Humble Beginnings...

A few families praying over the course of time…

A few sheep without a shepherd…

A pastor with a heart to humbly and lovingly bring God’s Word to bear upon the lives of God’s people…

After a short summer of praying & preaching throughout the Chicagoland area and finding incredible opportunities that fit the gifts God entrusted me to steward, my wife and I were in complete agreement that if we ever thought the Lord was calling us to plant a church, it would have to be our first choice and not a "the-other-thing-didn't-work-out" choice.

On August 1st of 2011, I removed my name and resume from 2 well established churches senior pastor interviewing processes and began the prayerful journey of establishing Fellowship Life Bible Church. The first phone call was

to a friend in church planting who I promised to call if I were planning to start a church. I also returned the phone calls of four Christians families who were not committed to a local body of believers but had individually previously asked me to consider planting a church. God had united our hearts to step out in faith together. Four phone calls turned into 11 families at our first informational meeting in mid August. This was without a strategy, advertisements or a website. Shortly there after, 11 families grew to 60 individuals by mid September 2011. Only through God's clear leading and abundant blessing are we here today inviting you to come grow with us and see what God is doing (Isaiah 43:18-19)!
