  • Rev. Matthew Lanser

    Pastor

    Pastor Matthew has been a pastor at Faith since 2014. He enjoys preaching, teaching, pastoral care, evangelism, and helping people to know and to follow Jesus more fully. Matthew grew up in Denver, and still sometimes misses the mountains (though Chicago’s skyline makes for a pretty cool horizon too). He went to Trinity Christian College in the Chicagoland area, and received his M.Div from Calvin Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Matthew then spent several years as a missionary in Nigeria. He worked with a rapidly growing group of churches in a remote area, where his primary tasks were to mentor indigenous missionaries and train local church leaders. After returning from Nigeria, Matthew earned a second masters’ degree from Calvin Seminary (this time focusing on how people interpret the Bible), and then accepted a call to serve here at Faith CRC. Matthew has been married to Laura since 2005. Laura has worked as a nurse in a variety of settings, but is currently a stay-at-home mom. They have three sons (David, Micah and Ezra), so Matthew reads a lot of kids’ books and has a great excuse to play with Legos. Please call Pastor Matthew at 630-279-1776 or email him.

  • Mac wiener

    Pastor

    Mac has been at Timothy Christian Schools since 1999. Currently, he teaches high school Bible in the morning and middle school Bible in the afternoon. He also coordinates both middle school and high school chapels. Mac graduated from Trinity Christian College in 1987 with degrees in business and theology. He then earned an M.Div. at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Mac has been married to Jeanne since 1992. They have two children: Timothy who serves full-time with YWAM in the Orlando, Florida area, and Ellie, in graduate school outside of Boston, focusing on Biblical Languages and the Old Testament. Mac enjoys teaching the Bible, exploring and learning about trees!
