A Sense of Home
Millennial / Young Adult Ministry at Willow Chicago focuses on helping 18 to 30-year-olds desiring to grow deeper in their faith and relationship with God. We do this by emphasizing the love and sacrifice of Christ, but also by highlighting the difficulties of life that often interrupt our attempts at having a real and lasting relationship with Him.
Rich or poor, black or white we are all part of God’s Kingdom. Belonging to a community of believers that is diverse both in ethnicity and background not only makes for an awesome learning environment, it is also Biblical.
"Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by[a] one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. " -1 Corinthians 12:12
You CAN Sit with Us

More than Sunday
For us Church shouldn’t just be a place to go on Sunday that will give us a boost and make us feel good about ourselves. It is a place that people can be real, open, and honest while studying the Bible and trying to look more like Jesus. We do this via
• Small Groups: Groups are the anchors for helping 20 & 30-year-olds here at Willow Chicago, connect with God, connect with one another, and connect with the city of Chicago. Without those anchors in your life, it is easy to drift away. From God, others, and from your commitment to the city of Chicago. We also have a quarterly, 3-month Bible Study.
Check out our small group opportunities here.
