Meet our founding pastor, Bryan Garfield

Bryan Garfield is the lead pastor and founder of Church on the Rock.  He likes rooting for the Chicago bears, going to the gym, and camping out with friends. He started the church in 2000 after pastoring various churches since he was 18 years-old. What started in a home, then to meet-ups in a movie theater, now has become a large and growing congregation that worships in our own three-story building set on a lawn full of soccer fields and an event pavilion. God has really been faithful!

Bryan's married to his wonderful wife, Carmen, and has four grown-up kids, two in Illinois, one in Missouri, and one in California.
