  • Dr. Greg Schuringa

    Senior Pastor

    Dr. Schuringa has been a pastor at Faith CRC since 2002 and has served as Senior Minister since 2009. He did his undergraduate studies at Dordt College, a Christian college in Iowa, and graduated from the University of California at San Diego. He received both his M.Div. and Ph.D. from Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His doctoral work was in the history of the church and theology. His great desire is to see churches and Christians today with a balanced biblical faith that includes vibrant biblical teaching, an ardent love for God and people, a zeal for sharing the Good News, and a resolve to live all of life in service to Jesus. To that end, Pastor Greg serves at Faith CRC especially by giving primary leadership to the church and taking the lead in preaching and worship, but also through involvement in the full range of pastoral activities. Pastor Greg has family roots in Chicago, but was born in northwest Indiana, and has lived in Philadelphia, west Michigan, the Netherlands, and southern California. He has been married to Sarah since 1997, a native of Rockford, Michigan. Sarah is a graduate of Reformed Bible College (now Kuyper College) and received her M.A. in Educational Ministries from Calvin Seminary. She enjoys being involved at Faith in a variety of ways and is a true partner in ministry with Pastor Greg. Sarah is a full-time mom. God has blessed the Schuringa’s with four daughters: Olivia, Hannah, Sophia, and Adrianna. Please call Pastor Greg at 630-279-1776 or email him. 


  • Rev. Matthew Lanser


    Pastor Matthew began his ministry here at Faith CRC as Minister of Congregational Life at the beginning of 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.
