Leadership

We are grateful that God has blessed our church with so many wonderful leaders and servants!  The Bible talks about the church being shaped and built by those who serve and use their gifts in different ways (Ephesians 4 and 1 Corinthians 12).  

Pastor

Jared Ahrens serves as our pastor.  Jared and his family transitioned to Hope in May 2019 after serving at 2 other local churches (Harvest Community Church, Willow Creek Community Church).  Jared & Yvonne have been married since 2003 and have 3 amazing children (Joshua, Jenna, & Becca).  They live in Hoffman Estates and are thankful to be able to serve Christ at Hope and in this community.  

Elders
