Our Pastor

Pastor Ashley Herr
Lead Pastor


I was raised on a farm outside a small town in Southeast Iowa. Although I grew up in a Christian home and have known Jesus my entire life, it was not until a friend asked if he could start a new church in our living room that I began to truly follow Jesus. Ever since, I have seen how God’s plans have always been greater than mine. After graduating from Iowa State University with a degree in electrical engineering and spending 17 years at Motorola, God called me to step to the role of lead pastor of the church that had begun in our living room just a few years earlier. I currently live near downtown Arlington Heights with my wife, Jill, and our two boys, Ethan and Sean.
