We welcome our new pastoral team, Rev. Hope Chernich, Rev. Wesley Dorr and Rev. Lindsey Long Joyce

Rev. Lindsey Long Joyce, Rev. Hope Chernich and Rev. Wes Dorr have been appointed to a pastoral team that has care over four churches: United Church of Rogers Park, Epworth United Methodist Church, Irving Park United Methodist Church, and Grace Church of Logan Square. All three members of the team share many basic responsibilities such as preaching, pastoral care, visioning, planning and relationship building. However, each member has their own passions and specializations. Rev. Hope oversees the ministries of administration, finance and spiritual development of the congregations. Rev. Lindsey oversees outreach and justice ministries on the large scale (conference and city-wide) as well as worship and community organizing. Rev. Wes oversees outreach and justice (programming and localized, neighborhood outreach) and children, youth and young family ministry. 

Rev. Hope lives in Jefferson Park with her husband, Dave and two kids, Olivia and Gabriel. She enjoys traveling with her family, especially to the ocean, conversations with friends, games and dark chocolate. Rev. Lindsey lives in Andersonville with her husband, Adam and daughter, Harper. She enjoys singing bluegrass, running and coffee (and not just because she has a 5 month old). Rev. Wes lives in Evanston with his wife, Charlotte and son, Brennan. He enjoys practicing photography, biking and following all things related to Chicago sports. The team is looking forward to joining your congregation and finding creative ways to tell God's story in an urban setting.
