Since January, our Launch Team has been gathering together in our home in Lake Zurich, meeting for worship, fellowship, prayer, and study. Our team has also been experiencing some growth and it’s time to make room for others. The Lord has answered our prayers and provided a new space for us to begin meeting in starting next Sunday, March 4th!
One of the first pastor’s I met with upon “landing” in Lake Zurich was Dave Mudd from Alpine Chapel. Dave has been a champion and supporter of church plants in the community, including us. I’m thankful for his friendship. Just this week, Dave graciously opened up space for us in their building to begin meeting at on Sunday afternoons for our growing team. Our Launch Team Gatherings are open to all and is the best way to meet us and learn more about Restoration Church in person. We meet most Sunday afternoons from 3:00pm – 5:00pm.

My fellow church planters, a few of our coaches, and myself from Reach Chicago will be joining hundreds of other church planters from across the nation this week in Orlando, Florida for a three-day conference, Exponential. We’ll be hearing from top speakers and participating in various breakout sessions for biblical inspiration and to receive practical tools as we continue in our church planting journey. Please be praying for our team as we travel and how the Lord may meet with us at the conference this week. Also, please be praying for our spouses and families in our absence this week.
- We’re putting together our budget for launch later this year. Please be in prayer for our financial needs. I’ll be sharing more specifically what those are in the coming weeks and how you can help if the Lord is calling you to participate.
- Pray for the continued growth of our team. We’ve had some great interactions over the last few weeks with those who are considering being part of Restoration Church.
- The sermon I shared at Village Church of Barrington last week was well received. We’re praying for a Kingdom revival in our communities and believe God is stirring many hearts to radically follow Him.
By the Cross. For the Kingdom.
