In August of 2010 an informational gathering was held in Lombard for those who were interested in helping to plant a church in the Lombard, Villa Park and Elmhurst communities led by Pastor Jeff Brewer from College Church in Wheaton. After this informational meeting the next month a men's bible study was begun at a local Starbucks in order to train men in the study of the Word and to develop leaders for the church.
In November 2010, monthly worship gatherings began on Saturday nights at the Lombard Community building and a core team gathered each Sunday morning at College Church in the adjacent "Brown House" where core team members prayed and studied the Word together and prepared for the launch of Sunday morning gatherings.
On April 10, 2011 Hope Fellowship officially began Sunday morning worship services in Lombard with our first Easter together being celebrated on April 25. In July 2011, Jon Trott began to serve as Associate Pastor, having been sent and supported from New Covenant Bible Church in St. Charles, IL.
Join us as we continue to gather together on Sunday mornings and in our mission groups meeting each week in homes.
