We are New Life.
One church, many locations.
One family, many backgrounds.
One message, many stories.
But one cross, one gospel, and one God.
Chris and Krista Ophus — Pastor
Chris began to follow the Lord seriously when he was 18 years old and a senior at Palatine High School in Palatine, IL. After a few years at a community college, Chris felt called to understand his new beliefs more deeply and entered Biblical Studies at Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL. As he was completing his education, Chris married Krista. The two felt called to move to Mexico to work in a cafe student outreach. While they were in Mexico Chris and Krista saw how many people were migrating to the U.S. and became convicted to move to Chicago's largest Mexican neighborhood, Little Village. They have been living, working, and serving with New Life in the Little Village neighborhood since 2005. Krista is a school teacher in the neighborhood, and Pastor Chris currently leads the congregation at Little Village Karlov. God has blessed them with two sons (Jonathan and Isaac) and a daughter (Hannah). They love living in Little Village and are excited to see God's work grow in their barrio.
