Introducing our new Lead Pastor!

With gratefulness to God, we are excited to announce that David Giese has accepted our offer to serve as the new Lead Pastor at Village Church of Gurnee!

Following Sunday night’s membership meeting, at which David received a 93% affirmative vote from the membership, the Elders reached out to David to formally offer him the position. David has enthusiastically accepted this offer, and is eager to begin his ministry here at Village!  

David’s first Sunday as our Lead Pastor will be Sunday, November 3.

  • On Sunday, November 3, Pastor David will begin a new sermon series titled Great is Thy Faithfulness. There will be cupcakes for all in the lobby between services from 10-11am. Let's celebrate!
  • On Sunday, November 10, Pastor David will be formally installed as the lead pastor of Village Church in a special ceremony which will be conducted during the worship services (9 & 10:45am). Following the 10:45am service, join us for lunch in the gym as we celebrate God’s faithfulness in bringing David & Sally to our church!

Pray for David and Sally as they prepare for this transition; pray for their current congregation, Judson Baptist Church, as they say goodbye to this dear couple; and pray for our congregation, that we would receive the Gieses into our church family with open arms. We look forward to what God has in store for us all as we enter this exciting new season of ministry!
