Pastors John & Jennifer Cannata

The Chapel is a place which strives to connect people to an experience with Jesus who changes lives!

Jenn and I were both raised in Christian homes- she in California and I in the suburbs of Chicago- however we never truly gave our hearts to Jesus during those times. It wasn’t until I was a young adult that I experienced a radical conversion which led me to attend the same Bible school that Jenn was attending.

After graduating Bible school, I was hired as the worship/youth pastor at an inner city church in Chicago, and Jenn and I were married in May 1990. We raised three incredible boys, who are all grown now and out of the house.

I have worked on the staff of three churches for a total of 30 years at just about every conceivable position. This has really prepared me for this new role.

Jenn and I have a great passion for worship and prayer, as well as a message about the grace and love of Jesus. Our lives have been so profoundly impacted by the experiential knowledge of God’s grace and love that we want to share it with others.

At the Chapel we want to create a culture and atmosphere where people can come experience the same. We believe it’s these experiences that cause us to grow in love in faith in Him. We want the Chapel to be a place where people can come together and connect with others to feel a sense of family and strength- a place where anyone can come as they are and get to know Jesus in a powerful way!

We hope you will consider visiting with us in the very near future because we look forward to getting to know you and your story. We meet Saturday nights at 6:00pm.

God’s highest and best be yours in abundance!
