Reaching and building passionate followers of Jesus Christ

Lawndale Community Church

Lawndale Community Church

God has led us to form a partnership with Lawndale Community Church in the inner city of Chicago as part of our DiscipleDriven vision. “Coach” Wayne Gordon started the church with a group of teenagers back in the 1970s. Through the church’s ministry, God has blessed this inner city community with a medical clinic, a fitness center and a Lou Malnati’s!

We will learn so much about holistic disciplemaking by coming alongside this ministry and assisting them as the Lord leads. We will start by getting involved in their discipleship house, called Hope House, that helps restore men who are struggling in life. The residential program is designed to equip and encourage men striving to re-enter society after prison or to recover from substance abuse to be productive Kingdom men.

Our adults and teens kicked off our partnership by building and delivering a truck load of bunk beds, and we are supporting construction on a new roof for hope house. on the many older buildings they own to reach their community. The 3rd Sunday of every month, groups of adults from Springbrook will head to Lawndale to worship with them on a Sunday and enjoy dinner with the men of Hope House.
