Here’s an email from Max Kuecker, a NU friend who also happens to be a seminary grad.:
“A series of conversations, prayers and other events over the past year that I have been back in Chicago have led me to start up a church in the city. In pursuit of my interest in working with the upwardly mobile, the vision of the church plant is to find creative ways to engage Chicago’s professionals and intellectuals in our role as co-workers with God in the process of building His Kingdom. For more details on this, check out our simple temporary webpage.
Prompting this email is the request of a favor. I need help spreading the word about the church. If you know anyone who might be interested in getting involved, either in the current planting stage or down the road when we have open services, could I ask you to shoot them an email with the link to the webpage? anyone you can think of who recently moved to Chicago, might be between churches, or might have once considered looking for a church, but isn’t currently worshipping anywhere… Thanks!
We have enough people at this point to start core team meetings in early Sept – including one woman from the denomination (Evangelical Covenant Church) who brings 7 years of church planting experience. We are looking to launch in the first half of 2004.”
