Lauren Cochran

Pastor/Head of Staff

Office: (630) 833-6600 X12

Hello!  I began serving this amazing congregation in November of 2019, and I consider myself one lucky pastor to be part of such a loving church family. 

A little bit about my background: I grew up Presbyterian in rural Ohio, went to Miami University (of Ohio) and majored in Art History and Comparative Religion, and then headed to Seminary at Harvard Divinity School.

While living in Boston, I met my husband, got married, and started our family.  We've been living in the Chicago 'burbs since 2013, but now live in Elmhurst with our 2 kids.  My husband is also a pastor (crazy right?!) and serves a different church in Naperville.

I love my job... I love preaching, dreaming about the direction of the church, visiting outstanding folks and witnessing how God is moving in all these places and people. 

I *also* love coffee, and would jump at the chance to sit down with you and get to know you better! Find me after worship or send me an email and let's get together soon.
