Our Story

How it all started...

Pastor Keith and Lannaea are high school sweethearts who've been married for almost 20 years.  They felt the call of God to minister at an early age, and worked to fulfill that call by first graduating from Oral Roberts University, then coming home to minister to teenagers and young adults.  After serving as a Youth and Associate Pastor and planting a church with his close friends in ministry, Keith felt the Lord prompting him to do "A New Thing" and quit his job at the height of Covid to plant a church on his own.  At the same time, the leadership at Calvary Church of Orland Park was praying about the next steps in their multiplication mandate.  After successfully launching a 2nd campus in Oak Lawn, they felt the Lord telling them to "Do a New Thing" and launch a campus that would embody their mission to "Join with Jesus to transform lives" in a new, distinctive way.  Through a series of God-ordained encounters and relationships, and after completing a year-long church plant residency, Hope Collective of Calvary was birthed. 

Calvary Reformed Church

We are a church family who is apprenticed to Jesus. We are learning from him how to live like him. We have different politics, different educational backgrounds, different ethnicities, and different bank account balances but what brings us together is Jesus.

Expanding the Vision

Hope Collective currently consists of Sunday morning services and weekly discipleship groups.  However, we are looking to bring the gospel to diverse audiences through various mediums and multiple spaces.  We believe that God has called us to do a "New Thing", which will consist of podcasts, music, missions, counseling, special events, leadership conferences, and, eventually, a private, Christian school.  
You are invited to take the journey with us! 

Where we are headed...

Hope Collective officially launched on September 24, 2023.  We are excited for what God has already done and look forward to everything that He has promised for the future!  Ultimately, we are and will always be headed in whatever direction the Lord navigates.  We feel blessed that God has called Hope Collective to "Join with Jesus to Transform Lives"!
