In 2007 Kent and Alli planted City Church in Downtown Chicago. Their calling is to bring the message of Jesus Christ to the city of Chicago in a fresh and relevant way. Their passion is to REACH those far from God, BUILD the Church, and CHANGE the world. Sharing a heart to make a difference in the world around them, together they strive to live each day to the fullest, extending their reach and partnership with social justice organizations and churches across the world every chance they get.

Kent and Alli have three amazing boys, Malachi, Kausti, and baby Thaj. While they love spending time at home with their family, they truly enjoy the city. From the Mag Mile and Lincoln Park to Bucktown and Logan Sqaure chances are you’ll spot them enjoying the atmosphere, or grabbing a latte at a local coffee shop. They love the culture and geography of Chicago and are excited about what God is doing in this city. From pastoring and parenting to leading and loving – this God loving couple are determined to make the name of JESUS known in the Second City and beyond!
