Jim J

Jim Johnson

Jim has been attending ACC since 1992. He and his wife Nancy are proud parents of four very busy, sports oriented kids: Allison, Annie, Matt, and Mitch. Jim is a self-described "sports nut" (Go Sox!!!) and loves coaching his children's teams when he can. His favorite sports moment was being in attendance at game 2 of the '05 World Series when Scott Podsednik hit a walk-off homerun!

He enjoys the opportunity to be a servant leader to the people of ACC and the surrounding community and seeing the life-changing power of Jesus Christ in peoples lives. He looks forward to the day when his boys will be the first brothers to play pitcher and catcher for the White Sox at the same time.

 

Jordan

Jordan Kerr

Jordan is married to Vickie and works at Abbott Laboratories as a Senior IT Engineer. He enjoys grilling and barbecuing (pulled pork is his specialty), designing electronic control systems for around the house, playing video games, and watching football on Sunday afternoons. In the past he worked as a professional actor in the Cleveland area where he performed pieces onstage as well as murder mystery dinner events.

God has given him a heart for shepherding and encouraging others – he is energized by seeing people cross the line of faith and then grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus.

 

Jim R

Jim Ray

Jim is a software developer at Discover Card Financial Services in Riverwoods, IL. He and his wife, Su, have two sons, Nate and Dan, and two daughters, Margo and Melody.
