Chicago Fellowship is committed to helping men experience the saving grace of Jesus Christ and work together to extend that grace to others through acts of compassion and justice in the broken places of our world. When we gather, we challenge and encourage one another through God's Word and the sharing of our lives. We laugh together, pray together, worship together, and serve others together. We commit ourselves to speaking and hearing truth from one another so that together we might pursue God's unique purpose for our lives with greater humility, integrity, and courage. In making this commitment, we seek not only our own good as men but also the well-being of our families and communities. We desire to be a community of men who embody the Gospel of Jesus Christ and answer the call of Micah 6:8 to "…act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God." This podcast covers keynote messages from our weekly meetings, covering a range of topics including urban ministry, development, spiritual growth, leadership and more.
