Who We Are

Our mission is to reach and equip young adults to live out their God-given mission. We are a group of young adults that love Jesus and love each other. We believe that God wants everyone in Chicago to have a loving community. Our desire is to be that place for you.

Becoming Groups

Becoming Groups serve as a place for our church body to gather outside of our normal Sunday and Tuesday services to seek the Lord–deepening our walk–and to connect deeply with one another.

All of our groups gather to discuss the content of the previous Sunday’s sermon. Groups will commit over the course of three months to meeting in various locations through the city.

Meet the Ministry Leader

Pastor David was saved as a young boy, and felt a call to ministry in high school. While attending Moody Bible Institute, his brother invited him to the Chicago Tabernacle, where he began to serve and continue to grow in leadership. During this season of his life, Pastor David encountered God’s presence in a powerful way. He is now married to Susie Stephens and has 3 young children, Owen, Eden, and Elliot. Pastor David has a desire for all people to encounter God in this way, so they can see the supernatural power of God in their everyday lives.
