Leadership

Faith is organized as a presbyterian church, which means we are led by elders.

Our congregation nominates and elects elders who meet the qualifications described in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, and who are called to shepherd the spiritual life of the congregation through word (teaching and encouraging), prayer, and action (as examples of Christ).

John and Karen met and married in California 23 years ago. Their first home together was in San Antonio, Texas, where John studied literature at the University of Texas. John and Karen moved to Chicago for grad school (Wheaton College Graduate School) and worked for a few years in the publishing industry.

Through the ministry of College Church of Wheaton, John and Karen began to set their hearts on full-time church ministry, heading to St. Louis to attend Covenant Theological Seminary.
