Thank you so much for taking time to learn about and explore what New Day Church is all about.
God has placed within our hearts a vision that is well beyond our abilities and resources, but we remain confident in His faithfulness to make it happen through those who will PARTNER with us.
“Why” Another Church?
It’s all about God’s PEOPLE!
Simply put, Sarah & I believe “The Church” is the answer to the overwhelming problems people face each and every day. As we look and have observed our geographic area, we noticed and even experienced a consistent gaps in 3 important areas –
1. Reaching people where they are.
2. Loving people as Christ would.
3. Walking people through God’s Transformation process.
We feel strongly that we have been called to those 3 things – Reach people, Love people and help Transform lives.
We are ready, excited and full of faith to BELIEVE that God will FULFILL the vision and the burden He has placed within our hearts.
After 15 years of ministry, we took a well needed and important 2-year break. During that time, we prayed and waited on God to know when the time was right. After much thought and counsel, we believe the time is NOW for us to launch New Day Church!
Family roots go deep. It’s our hometown. Many people need Jesus. We have a burden for the families and communities of the south suburbs of Chicago.
There are nearly 2 million people within a 15-mile radius of Frankfort, New Lenox, Orland Park & Homer Glenn who don’t know Jesus. Those 3 million need someone to Reach them, to Love them and to help them experience the Transformation that only Jesus can provide!
Our NAME – New Day!
“New Day” represents so much for us personally as well as for the ministry. God is doing a New thing. He has provided a New covenant. He has made each and everyone of us a New creation. His mercies are New every day.
New Day really speaks to a person’s future rather than their past. We hope to help you and many others resurrect dreams, hopes and gifting’s that have fallen to the wayside and begin aNEW.
“His mercies are NEW every morning…” – Lam. 3:22-24

Our MISSION –
We will REACH others where they are at, with the Love of God, so that they can be TRANSFORMED by His power & grace!
REACH… people right where they are.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” – Acts 1:8 (NKJV)
LOVE… people just as Christ would.
“By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.” – 1John 3:16-18 (NKJV)
TRANSFORM… people with God’s power & by His grace.
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” – 2Cor. 3:18 (NKJV)
