The Life Church of Des Plaines

We are Jack’s disciples, we love. We believe in people, we trust that with time, prayer, faithfulness, those people will do great and valiant things. In fact, it is our prayer that the people we lead will go farther and reach higher, on our shoulders, than we ever did.
