From the beginning, Parkview set out to spiritually influence the western suburbs of Chicago in relevant and relational ways. Sr. Pastor Ray Kollbocker came to faith in Christ because a Christian friend loved him without condition. His friend was more interested in relationship than reforming behavior. It was through that relationship Ray began to understand and experience the grace of God for the first time.
At Parkview, we believe people are more important than programs and relationships more important than ritual. Therefore, Parkview strives to innovate ways for people to connect with God, to live together and experience a true sense of community and to encourage one another toward spiritual growth, service and life-altering faith. We work hard to insure everyone is invited and welcomed into a diverse community of people who together are learning more about each other and God’s love for us. One thing we are convinced of, genuine faith makes a difference in every aspect of our lives.
