Josh Crisp ~ Lead Pastor

Josh grew up in Southern Illinois in a small farming community where his friends know him as “Bubba." Josh met Bethany while he was in the Army getting ready for his second tour to Iraq. Together they have three beautiful kids, Tinley, Lexi, and Silas. In his spare time he enjoys fishing and eating hot wings. 

Josh currently holds a B.S. in Religion from Liberty University and a MDIV from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.


Ryan Patino ~ Worship Leader

"Ryan is a Chicagoland native and has been leading worship for the past 12 years. He earned a Bachelor's in Music from Millikin University and a Master of Arts in Religion from Liberty University. His passion is to see people let down their guard and transparently respond to God. Outside of enjoying time with his wife Emily and their 3 daughters, he's probably drinking coffee, watching baseball or cooking something!"
