Our Story

We are simple people on a simple, yet profound mission: to experience as much of the love and power of Jesus as we can, and to share that love and power with everyone we meet.

Our adventure started in 2012 when Todd and Susan Cosenza (members of Living Word Church) felt called by God to establish a new church in the Northwest Indiana area. We are a part of a family of churches called Lifelink Chicago, which includes Living Word Church in Lansing, Illinois, CrossPoint Church in Crown Point, Indiana and Mercy Hill Church in Munster, Indiana. Out of the three churches, 22 families came with the call of God on their lives and the fire of God in their hearts to bring a fresh expression of Kingdom life and power to the Griffith area. The three home churches held a worship and prayer service at the Griffith YMCA in January of 2013 and the leadership team felt like that facility should be our church plant home. We have been meeting at the YMCA each Sunday morning at 10 AM since our formal launch service on April 14, 2013.

Are you without a church home and ready to encounter God’s love and power in a fresh way? Then come visit us and see what God is doing!
