My name is Mark Meyers and I have the privilege of serving as pastor of New Life. My primary job is to equip you to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. That means I journey with you in your personal faith walk and decision to follow Jesus. I am passionate about the living Word of God (Jesus Christ) and sharing his teachings which strengthen and challenge us. I am also passionate about the Means of Grace (including the Lord’s Supper and Baptism) which are ways we experience God’s love in our lives. This leads us to serve our community and world, bringing forth not only personal life change, but world change.
I am an Ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church. I graduated from Cornell College and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary (on Northwestern Campus). I enjoy movies, music, television shows, gaming and Chicago sports (but mainly the Cubbies!). I have been a touring musician (Clarinet), a martial artist (Tae-Kwon-Do) and am a published author (Urban Fantasy). My wife, Jennifer, and I are passionate about ministry with children and at-risk youth. We are foster parents and have three young children and two cats.
