Pastor Tom Harcus

Vision and Equipping

Tom has been a follower of Jesus since 1978 when Jesus invaded and irreversably changed his life as a freshmen at Purdue University. He is privileged to serve Crossway through equipping, evangelism, and leading the overall vision for the church. One of the greatest joys in his life is Dawn, his wife and partner in ministry since 1986. Their life together has been shared with three choice children. They love their date nights and they stay very active enjoying exercise of almost of any kind (including ultra-triathlons), hiking, hunting and fishing. Tom loves hanging out and discovering people's stories from every possible background, interest, race, age and political persuasion.

Pastor Clark Richardson

Teaching and Admin

Clark's greatest joy is seeing how the word of truth regularly and radically changes lives and grows people into committed followers of Christ. His best friend, companion, and ministry partner is his bride of 24 years, Tricia. They stay busy with two kids at Wheaton College (Jake and Kailin) along with 3 others still holding down the fort at home (Luke, Sam, and Grace). Clark enjoys running, lots of different music, and in general most all outdoor life.

Pastor Mike Dunford

Children and Youth

Mike’s passion is leading young people into a deeper more intimate walk with Jesus. As pastor over children and youth, his greatest desire in ministry is to connect students with God’s Word in a relevant and practical way and inspire them to make a difference in a world that doesn’t know Christ. Mike is joined in ministry by his best friend and faithful bride of 16 years, Lorianne, and 4 energetic kiddos—Ethan, Lincoln, Sydney, and Avery. As a family, the Dunfords enjoy outdoor activities of all types (hiking, biking, rollerblading, and camping) and love spending time with friends.

Pastor Jerry Kennell

Shepherding and Missions

Pastor Jerry has worked in Brazil for over 40 years as a missionary to two tribal groups, and at present is working to get the translation of the New Testament into the Katukina language ready to be printed and delivered to them. He married Gloria in 1962 and the Lord blessed them with five children (four boys and one girl). At present Jerry is participating as an active pastor at Crossway Chapel, thrilled to see how God is moving in North Aurora and surrounding communities as he gathers people to hear the gospel message.
