about our Leadership
Senior Pastor & Elder
Ty came to know Christ at the age of 10 at a Baptist church he attended with his mother. When he went on to play college football on 2 Big Ten Championship teams at Northwestern University, he realized that though he was growing up as a man physically, he had not grown up spiritually since coming to Christ. Rather than a supreme focus on football and academics, his time at NU became centered on attending, learning from, and pouring into multiple campus ministries. After graduation, he realized he wanted to spend his life serving the Lord vocationally. In 2000 Ty married & began working for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. There after he was employed by Harvest Bible Chapel & Park Community Church in Chicago. Desiring to grow in biblical accuracy as a pastor, Ty attended Moody Bible Institute to receive his MDIV. He is currently working to finish his doctorate through Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary out of Boston. Ty has served as the Senior Pastor of Fellowship Life Bible Church since it began in 2011. Most important to Ty is how he lives out and handles God’s word at home as a husband and father – desiring to live with his wife in an understanding way (1 Peter 3:7), and train up his children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Eph. 6:4).
Clint is married to Ericka and they have two wonderful children (Kennedy & Grant). He has been an IT Executive in the wireless communications industry for over 20 years. Clint currently serves as one of our life group leaders and has served as a life group leader at other churches before making FLBC his home church. Clint earned his bachelors from Judson University and has gone on to take a few masters level courses at Moody Theological Seminary. Despite a busy work schedule, he enjoys being in fellowship with the Lord’s people and especially with those under his own roof - he's genuine family man!
Jake has been leader in the advertising industry for several years. He earned his undergraduate degree while also playing football and still enjoys being active. Jake has been following Christ since his youth and is now the father of 4 outgoing children (Hailey, Hannah, Mickey, & CJ) who are all learning to follow Christ for themselves as well. Jake and his bride, Katie enjoy a family breakfast nearly every morning! Here at FLBC Jake has served as both a worship leader and life group leader.
