Meet Our Team
Pastor Joshua and Gina Sherif
Joshua and Gina Sherif have a heart to live and share the Gospel and to equip others to do the same. Joshua is originally from Egypt and Gina grew up in central IL. Their Mid-East meets Mid-West story has led them to North West side of Chicago where they are raising their two children.
Troy and Joy Lane
Troy and Joy met in college and made their home in Indianapolis after getting married. It was there that they were able to work in the Church and in local schools while clarifying their passion for community and intentional discipleship. Before leaving Indianapolis for Chicago, their family grew as they welcomed their two children into their family. Hearing of New Life’s vision for making disciples across the city by building Christ centered communities in each of its distinct neighborhoods, Joy and Troy recognize that God has been preparing them to help gather a community of believers seeking to love and serve the north side neighborhoods of Avondale, Logan Square, and beyond. Joy is blessed to be able to use her experience and passion for worship, team building, and journeying alongside women as they seek Christ. Troy loves to build new relationships in near by neighborhoods and spend time walking alongside others as they grow in their relationship with God. Together they are excited to explore the city and discover opportunities to invite more neighbors into the calling to be the light of Christ in Chicago.
