The Pentecostals Of Chicago

"The Lighthouse Church of All Nations in southwest suburban Alsip, IL is known as Chicago's 'Bridging the Gap' Church. This 2,200 member non-denominational ministry is led by the dynamic Senior Pastor Dan Willis. You may know Pastor Dan Willis from the Pentecostals of Chicago Choir, the All Nations Choir or host of the television show I'm Just Sayin'.

"Pastor Dan, as he is affectionately called, founded the church at the young age of sixteen. He and his wife Linda have led this body for over thirty years, having started with small storefront in Oak Lawn.

"A vibrant speaker, Pastor Dan teaches in conferences and workshops across the nation on cross-cultural ministry, music and leadership development.

"Today, The Lighthouse Church is home to over sixty different nationalities, making Sunday mornings a time of vibrant worship and contagious praise."

Indeed - he's got a helluva choir.

1. Wow.


2. "Rev. Dan Willis and The Pentecostals turned out The Apostolic Church of God in 1991 as they helped Saving Grace Ministries celebrate their 5th anniversary," Phillip Richardson writes. "The Pentecostals' energy was electrifying and an integrated choir of this size and magnitude was groundbreaking."


3. Launch Rev. Dan Willis and The Pentecostals Radio here.


4. Sort of recognized by MTV.


5. "This group, now known as The All Nations Choir, has six albums to their credit and have performed with artists from Celine Dion and Kirk Franklin to missionary trips in the orphanages of Kingston, Jamaica."


6. "There is so much joy in what we do."
