In 2008, two existing churches (Christ’s Church of Wrigleyville and CitiChurch in Wicker Park) came together to form a new church family: Missio Dei Chicago. Our desire was to join together with a heart to see people find both love and passion for Jesus and His work of renewal in our world. In light of that longing, our mission is very simple...make disciples of Jesus in each of our neighborhoods. This is our mission because it is Jesus’ mission. This is “Missio Dei” – the mission of God. We now exist as four Missio Dei congregations (Albany Park, Lincoln Square, Uptown, and Wriglevyille), reflecting both our hyper-local and city-wide passion for God’s renewal in Chicago.
We are convinced that the good news of Jesus changes people, and that this change happens best in the context of relationships. From Gospel Communities in homes throughout the week to serving our city together, our community life goes far beyond Sunday worship.
Wherever we gather, be it to worship, learn, connect, or serve, you will find folks who have journeyed with Jesus for a long time, those who have strayed from Him and returned, and those who are just now learning about following the way of Jesus. Wherever you are in your journey, we invite you to join us.
