Dave Gruthusen

Pastor of Adult Discipleshipoffice: (708) 925-9296 ext. 304

Dave Gruthusen grew up in the northwest side of Chicagoland, and received Jesus in 1974 as an 8 year old.  He received his college degree at the University of Northwestern (MN) in 1987, and an M.A. in Educational Ministries from Trinity International Divinity School in Deerfield, IL  in 2002.


Dave has served in full-time ministry since 1990 in churches in Minnesota and the Chicagoland area.  He served in a church minutes away from Harvest Rolling Meadows as the church planting movement was getting started.  He is humbled and excited to be a part of it here in Palos where he is the Pastor of Adult Discipleship overseeing all men's and women's ministries as well as small groups.


He and his wife, Kresson, have three teenage children:  Tyler, Jordan, and Talia. Together they lead a small group.


Oh, and Dave is both a Sox AND a Cubs fan, as all true Chicagoans should be!
