About Pastor Padraig McGuire

Preach with hands-2

Pastor Padraig McGuire joined us in ministry on September 20, 2015. Pastor McGuire is known by many in the community as he had served with us several years ago as an interim. We know him to be a spirit-filled person who preaches with conviction about the grace and love of Jesus Christ. He is a gifted teacher, thoughtful leader, phenomenal musician, and tireless worker.

First, his name…

Padraig is Irish for Patrick (translates to Peter). Pastor McGuire began using this  spelling after his father and namesake’s death to honor his memory.

As further background…

Pastor McGuire was ordained a minister in the ELCA in 1995. He has served a number of congregations throughout the Metro Chicago Synod over the last fifteen years as Interim Pastor, Regularly Called Pastor, Parochial School Teacher and Cantor (Lutheran for chief musician). He brings a great depth of experience and education, including a Master of Theological Studies degree and Master of Divinity Degree. As a trained musician, he brings this gift to his pastoral ministry. If you would like to reach Pastor McGuire, please contact the church office at 847-367-5787 or send an email to pb1552@aol.com.

Asked to articulate his view of ministry and Christian witness in one sentence, Pastor says it is…To bring light and hope to the place we find ourselves in Jesus name.
