Pastor Adaline has been part of the Windy City team since 1993. Trinity Evangelical Divinity School was her home prior to that, having received her Master of Arts in Religion and ministering as Dean of Women and Associate Dean of Students there. Married to Rob, who is an elder here, and mom to two college age 'kids', she loves working in the background and helping people discover God and His glory and goodness through the Scriptures. Favorite Bible character? Ehud, the left handed judge. Favorite Bible verse? Psalm 27:13-14; but then Romans 10:11 is right up there, too.

Jen joined the Windy City team in July 2017 after serving on the staff of Willow Creek Community Church for 9 years in the areas of Discipleship and High School ministry. She and her husband live in the suburbs (gasp!) and think the commute is totally worth it! Jen's biggest hope is that God will use her to reveal who He really is to both those who do not yet know Him and to those who want to go deeper in their faith. Reach out if you would like to meet up, share your stories or ask those questions you've been carrying around for a while.

Stacey joined the Windy City worship team in 2010. Her greatest passion is Christian music. She enjoys writing and singing songs that reveal the truth about who God is. She finds perfect joy in sharing the news that God wants us to know Him and longs to be our Savior and Father. Music is an amazing tool that God can use to draw people to Himself, and magnify His Holy Name.
