Meet Our Senior Pastor

Pastor David Lovi

PD

Pastor David holds a masters degree in Christian Studies and has an MA in Church History from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is currently enrolled in the Doctor of Ministry program at The Master's Seminary and will graduate in 2020.

He has served as a missionary in Chicago to the Jewish community and has extensive experience with street evangelism in different Jewish and Muslim sections of Chicago.

Pastor David volunteers as a board member on the Martyn Lloyd-Jones Trust USA which exists to promulgate the sermons of Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones worldwide.

As an extension of that ministry, he also hosts a weekly radio program called "From the MLJ Archive."

Pastor David’s first book, The Power of God: A Jonathan Edwards Commentary on the Book of Romans, was released last August through a division of Wipf & Stock Publishers. It is available online and in various bookstores.

He is passionate to preach the Good News about Jesus to all who have ears to hear.

Meet our Pastor of Ministries

Pastor Mike Calacci

PM6

Pastor Mike was born and raised in the city of Rockford, Illinois, about 90 miles west of Chicago. He put his faith in Jesus in February of 1989 while working in downtown Chicago for a real estate development company.

Shortly after his conversion, he felt called to ministry and joined the staff of a church while attending Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Mike received his Masters Degree in Religious Education in 1994. He later returned to Trinity to work on his Ph.D. in educational studies.

He has completed his coursework and begun work on his dissertation. This is Mike’s
27th year in local church ministry. Most of those years were spent serving churches in the Chicagoland area.

He loves the church and his passion to see it thrive in Christ has only increased through the years. Mike has been married to his wife Tina for 24 years. They have been blessed with 4 sons: Taylor (23), Alex (22), Luke (19), and Adam (14).
