Hi! I’m Grant Glowiak and I am so excited to serve all of you as the new Youth Director. I am currently a student at Chicago Theological Seminary working part-time on a Masters of Divinity and eventual ordination within the UCC. I grew up right next door in Western Springs and I look forward to working and living in such a blessed area as ours. After graduating from Lyons Township High School (which I hope will not be too controversial) I attended Grinnell College and majored in religious studies.
Upon returning I continued my involvement in the church I grew up in, First Congregational Church of Western Springs, and after a short break from academics began my studies in Seminary. I am eager to learn the ins and outs of both the church and the youth programs. My priorities are maintaining the long-standing tradition of fellowship and outreach as well as bringing some new practical and theological concepts to bear on our youth.
Please feel free to introduce yourself to me and I sincerely look forward to meeting all of you!
Director of Youth Ministries
