Funeral Planning

The death of a loved one ushers in a cascading well of complex emotions. Willow Creek's funeral team offers officiants (pastors) that can help you plan your loved one's memorial or funeral. 




The prayer team serves through compassionate presence and is available before and after each service. You can also submit prayer requests through the Willow Creek App or directly to Thomas Anderson Jr. at



Marriage Ministry

Willow Chicago is dedicated to reflecting God's grace and truth by encouraging Christ-centered relationships and marriages, and by embracing those who are relationally broken.
