Living Hope Church, Aurora

Holy Trinity Church, Chicago

Pastor Jon Dennis and Pastor David Helm
On May 3, 1998, thirty-seven adults took vows to found Holy Trinity Church. As Rev. Kent Hughes said at our founding, “the trajectory of our lives would be forever changed.” And we hoped, as London pastor, Dick Lucas, said in his remarks on that day, “When God opens a door, no man can shut it.”

Christ Church Chicago

Pastor David Helm
On May 3, 2020, Holy Trinity – Hyde Park was planted as a new church, Christ Church Chicago, under the leadership of Pastor David Helm, the co-founding pastor of Holy Trinity. We are thrilled for this day and excited about what is ahead.

Church Planting Across the Globe

College Church is committed to planting churches locally and internationally.

Through our Cross-Cultural Missions program, we support missionaries on six continents to train pastors for ministry and to plant churches.

Equipping and Sending Pastors

Equipping Pastors

Our two-year program equips pastors for ministry wherever God calls them.  Several residents are accepted into the program each year.

Sending Pastors

Over 20 pastors have completed the residency program – see where the Lord has called them to serve.

Equipping for Music Ministry

We seek to equip for worship by freely sharing resources with individuals and churches.  Our Music & Worship Team curates a list of resources for worship leaders and a directory of original compositions and hymn arrangements.

Launching Ministries

Through College Church congregation members and College Church initiatives, new ministries have been launched.
