Rich and Dori first met while on staff at SCC. In 2011 they moved to Chicago and immediately started a weekly worship services in their apartment. From that point the church has grown to over 100 people gathering at a local elementary school. NewStory is a multi-ethnic church; a place where people of every tongue, tribe and nation work to bridge the ethnic and social divisions created by sin.
The Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago is one of the most diverse in the city, boasting one of the largest refugee communities in the country (over 60 languages spoken at the elementary school!)
We exist to help people find their way back to God through a life-changing connection with Jesus. We strive to reach and restore the city for Christ.
