Steadfast

This weekend, Willow Creek launches a new weekend series, Steadfast. "So often people jump from hero to hero, job to job, object to object," says Teaching Pastor Steve Carter. "It' has become easier to move on rather than to fully commit yourself to where God has planted you. We want to call our community to be steadfast."

Celebration of Hope

Join us this weekend, May 6/7, as we conclude Celebration of Hope with a message from Gary Haugen, the founder and director of International Justice Mission.

Discovering Peace

In the middle of the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time, millions of peaceful civilians are being forced to leave their homes in the desperate search for safety. In an attempt to capture and take over towns and villages in the Middle East, hostile terror groups are striking with attacks of every kind.

The Rising Church

TODAY, SOPHANY LOOKS AROUND his beleaguered country and is reminded that the crippling effects of violent conflict, sustained over generations, linger long after the fighting stops.

Discovering a Future

A courageous young woman with a tenacious hope for her future needed someone to come alongside her and help make a way where her community and even her parents believed there was none.

Faith through Children

Pastor Kita looked around his small, struggling village of Kanynjre and dreamed of transformation.

Love Your Enemies

LETTING AN ENEMY off the hook by loving him, blessing him, and praying for him flies directly in the face of our aching human nature. But God, knowing that our humanity might get in the way of our calling, reminds us again and again to love Him and love others—even when loving “others” includes an enemy.

Hope Unleashed

WHEN PASTOR EDDY saw a problem in his community, he put his entrepreneurial mind to work to fix it. In his city of Bayaguana, the third-poorest city in the Dominican Republic, people had no access to clean water.

Perspective Shift

A SIMPLE SHIFT IN PERSPECTIVE lifted an entire congregation out of a 20-year rut.

The Power of a Seed Pack

Violence in Chicago

I sat, riveted, in a seventh-floor courtroom at the George Leighton Criminal Courthouse on the South Side of Chicago, a few rows behind two men serving life sentences for murder.

Coming Full Circle

A sheath of snow and ice encases the North Dakota Prairie. In photos captured early this year, teepees and tents and trailers stand atop the snow, full of people who have stayed after a victory by protesters there late last year, when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers agreed to halt construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

A Little Store with a Big Heart

On the far South Side, 47 miles away from the South Barrington campus of Willow Creek, a large gray building sits across from a sugar factory.

See Everyone, Always

And that’s at the core of my wish as a racial minority. It’s about balance. It’s about wholeness.

Desperate and Detained

Rising Up

Thomas had been joyfully providing pastoral care for more than five years at Dumela High School, set at the foot of a mountain in South Africa. He loved building into the next generation. But then tragedy struck the community.

One Million in One Weekend!

All eight Willow Creek locations set out to achieve an ambitious goal of filling one million seed packs in one weekend from April 28–30.
