MEET OUR AMAZING volunteer TEAM LEADERS!

Windy City Church is run, almost literally, by our amazing volunteer team leaders! They take

ownership of so many areas of ministry that we had to brag about them a little bit here!

brian> WORSHIP TEAM:  SOUND PRODUCTION TEAM LEADER

Brian and his wife Cari, along with their five children, have attended Windy City Community Church for over 15 years. Having served in the sound ministry from a young age (around 12 years old) at the church he grew up in, he found his place as a volunteer in the sound ministry at WCCC shortly after becoming a regular attender. He has had the opportunity to serve with many talented individuals on the team over the years. When not at church or home, Brian works as the Lead Senior Developer for a large online music gear retailer. "Having a strong penchant for technology since I was a kid, it is no wonder that God lead to a career as a programmer. I am very fortunate to be in a career that's not only fulfilling, but also really fun." Brian's goal for the sound team he leads at WCCC is to be passively heard and not seen. In other words, the sound should never be a distraction. "I absolutely love being involved with my church's sound ministry!  Our team gets to help deliver the Word of God on regular basis. How cool is that?!"

Carrie & STEVE> Welcome TEAM directorS

Steve & Carrie met in college and have been married just over 28 years. They have always lived in Chicago since being married and began attending WCCC in the spring of 1992. They have 2 adult children, Matthew 23, and Hannah 21. Steve works for Hilton Hotels and Carrie works at Trinity International University.


They have been involved in many different ministries during their time at WCCC. Having been part of the Sunday morning teams for a while, they are looking forward to taking more of a lead role in this ministry, overseeing the Greeters and Ushers. They feel that welcoming regular attenders and newcomers is a very important part of any church family. 

dennis> STEWARDSHIP RELATIONS director

Dennis has been a part of WCCC since it was conceived in a home Bible study. It has been a part of his life for over 30 years. In that time, In fact, he was an Elder for 27 years (20 of those, as the Chairman of the Elder Board), Church Treasurer, Bible teacher, care group leader, husband, father and friend. "I have been richly blessed by this community of believers that has been in continuous operation in this place for almost 100 years. We are walking the path that started here as Norwood Park Baptist Church in 1920 and merged with WCCC in 1997. Hundreds of men and women have come before us as teachers, ministers, club workers and care givers. We are here to continue the work of the Lord in the lives of everyone who passes through our doors or encounters us in our everyday lives. Most of the work we have to do is done in relationships. This is an exciting opportunity for me since much of what I have done in the past has been administrative and leadership, so this will be new. I look forward to this new role."

Don> Missions committee chair

Don began attending Windy City Community Church in the 1990’s. All his life he remembers having a desire to help missionaries in some way. When he was age 62 he had the opportunity to fulfill that desire personally. In 2000 he went to the Philippines to serve at Faith Academy as a teacher putting his 27 years of teaching Special Ed and English experience at Glenbrook North High School to a new use. In addition to teaching at the public school, he has always loved teaching Bible classes. Since his return from the Philippines in 2007 Don has continued to teach the Bible in Sunday school classes and in small groups. Don has also served on the WCCC Missions Committee for a number of years.  "I love missions and I love encouraging and communicating with Windy City’s missionaries."
