Faith Presbyterian Church is a place where people can meet Jesus,
engage in life-giving community, and everyone is welcome.
We believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters
with Christ and with each other. Join us for our Sunday services!
Rev. Rich Davis grew up in Winthrop Harbor, IL and met his wife, Shauna, there. Since receiving his M. Div. from Western Theological Seminary of Holland, MI in 2004, he has served as pastor at the Martin Reformed Church of Martin, MI, the First Presbyterian Church of River Forest, IL, and the Emmanuel Reformed Church of Morrison, IL. Pastor Rich and Shauna have three teenage children, Tyler, Kamryn, and Nathan.
Pastor Rich is passionate about proclaiming the relevance of faith to everyday life. He believes in team-based ministry and building strong relationships that model unity and service. He believes the church is a community where we are called to join together and encourage one another in a daily rhythm of faith.
Our beliefs are more than just statements about God. What we believe transforms our hearts. What we believe shapes our lives. What we believe deeply affects our relationships.
At Faith Presbyterian, we humbly stand in the long tradition of Christians who have built their beliefs upon the foundation of God’s Word as revealed to us in the Bible, the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit, and the person and work of Jesus Christ. As we grow in faith, we journey together with Jesus as our example, the Bible as our path, and the Holy Spirit as our guide.
