Chicago West Bible Church is a church plant in the Austin Community of Chicago. Their worship services are held at Michele Clark High School and they are extremely active in the high school and community. Their presence in the high school has brought many to their church including the principal, assistant principal, teachers and many from the basketball team.
Pastor Jon Kelly and his wife Danielle have two sons and lead the church along with an amazing support staff. Calvary has chosen to partner with Jon and the church as part of a program through the North American Missions Board. Our hope is to offer prayer, encouragement, and financial support in addition to sending teams on one-day or weekend trips to Chicago to work along side the church as they reach their community for Jesus.
