    About Messiah:

    We have a (re)growing student ministry and our Pastors have been with us for 12 & 17 years. With over three decades of experience in Youth Ministry. We opened our new FLC (family life center) just one year before the pandemic and are excited about the growth of our church, our children, students and adults.

    M.S.M. is a hybrid ministry incorporating elements of Purpose Driven Philosophy, Son Life building, LCMC and Dare2Share models! We are not afraid to shake things up and try new things.

    Messiah is a medium sized church (approximately 250 worshipers on any given Sunday). We have several worship formats from a Formal Liturgy to our Contemporary Family Praise and Worship service. Many styles of worship but the one true Gospel is presented at each.

    Our fresh 5-year vision on how we fulfill our Mission is:

    BRING: God brings you into relationship with Jesus

    BUILD: God builds you up to be like Christ

    BUMP: God Bumps into the World through you

    We are located in Joliet, Illinois, a community of approximately 150,000, situated 45 miles southwest of Chicago. Currently, Joliet (Will County) was one of the fastest growing counties in the United States in the last decade. It is a city offering a variety of great attractions, fun festivals, sports and entertainment venues. Our church is on the growing edge of that community at the intersection of I-80 and I-55.

    Joliet is also host to both the Route 66 Drag Strip and the Chicago land Speedway, as well as Bicentennial Park, Rialto Square Theater and the Joliet Area Historical Museum. The area is also the home of University of St. Francis, Lewis University, Joliet Junior College and is convenient to all that the Chicago metro area has to offer.

    Our staff consists of two pastors, worship coordinator, & office manager, bookkeeper, choir directors, organist, and various interns.
