With 20 years of experience, Pastor Solís began his ministry in his local church as youth leader and worship ministry. During this time God called him to start different praise and worship teams in local churches and missions.
With a lot of experience in youth ministry, Pastor Solís has devoted years to create evangelistic youth programs such as camps, concerts and conferences in different parts of Latin America and the USA. He worked as a missionary in southern Mexico for three years. He is currently studying a Master of Divinity degree at Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary in Chicago.
His passion is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, make new disciples for Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, Church growth, and work to connect our congregation with the community.
He is happily married with Laura, their children are David, Joshua and Denalyn, all of them take care of two “heavenly creatures…” Yoshi their doggie and Wilbur the new immigrant feline of the house.
Pastor Solis enjoys listen and record music (all of kind!) good movies, reading, and lately he is facing the contradiction that represent eating tacos, and workout at the gym!
We have a broad, diverse membership from the near western suburbs of Chicago, including River Forest, Oak Park, Forest Park, River Grove, Melrose Park, Maywood, Bellwood, Berwyn, Brookfield, Broadview, Westmont, Westchester and Elmwood Park.
Our church has a convenient parking lot at the corner of Lake and Thatcher. The building is handicapped accessible, air conditioned, and includes a fully staffed nursery. We are open and welcoming to one and all.
For service to others, Christian fellowship, and family fun, RFUMC is the place to be!
We are also home to the Mosaic Montessori Academy.
