Training Next Generation Leaders

We’re inspiring and training the next generation of Christian leaders to a life of radical faith in Jesus and missional-living. From pastoral ministry to the college classroom, one-on-one mentoring, writing, video producing, and podcasting, we’re leveraging every opportunity to influence and equip Christian leaders for Kingdom-expansion locally and globally. We believe every follower of Jesus Christ is called to participate in God’s disciple-making movement.

Innovative Church Planting

“If you make disciples, you will always get the church. But if you try to build the church, you will rarely get disciples.” (Mike Breen)

More than ever we need the restorative power that is found in Jesus Christ extended to our families, neighbors, communities, and the world. We planted Restoration Church in Lake Zurich (a northwest suburb of Chicago) with a mission to share Jesus with the world by making disciples of all nations. We’re innovating “how” we do church and lead followers of Jesus Christ into transformative faith, authentic relationships with others, and life on mission for the Kingdom without barriers. Restoration Church is an Acts 2:42 modeled community built on the simplicity of the word & mission, fellowship, communion, and prayer.
