The Orchard by choosing

Victoria Paul

More than half of the kids in our congregation attended a Storytime, and we had a blast! 

Pastor Josh Parsons

There are unbelievers who have come to know the love of Jesus and there are believers who have been strengthened in their faith on account of the work that God has done here, in this place!

Pastor Andre Ballard

The Thrive Campaign has allowed our church to build relationships and meet the needs of a community right in the heart of our mission statement, the city of Chicago.

Pastor Tom Yoon

The Lord has used Thrive to build a new Gospel-preaching congregation in The Orchard, and I’m looking forward to seeing all the fruit that is yet to come.

David and Amy Williams

We knew on our first visit that this was an amazing place to be and that we had found the right church home for our family.

Will and Mackenzie Hopkins

It further kindled our excitement for international missions and led us to process how we can best prepare for missions now.

Dave and Gina Udchik

We never thought missions was for us, but the Lord has changed our hearts, and it started with that first trip to the Balkans.

Zenol Moore

Zenol said she is always asking the Lord, “Why am I here…and what do You want me to do?” She knows that if He is giving her work to do, He will give her the energy to do it.

Lisa and Rusty Schluchter

Sundays became a source of hope for us to gather as a family, worship God, hear from his word and pray together--even in our pj’s.
