Kevin Groben

Senior Minister

I am blessed to have my wife (Teresa) and our two beautiful girls (Diana and Emilia) in my life. I enjoy hanging out with my daughters, playing games, and relaxing with my wife. I am an avid Bears fan, Star Wars fanatic, and I enjoy playing video games. My greatest desire is to live my life for God's will. Each day is a new adventure learning to live in a way that pleases Him. I am pleased to serve a God who works through my sin and brokenness to build me up in Christ and has given me the ministry to assist others in this endeavor. Moreover, I love to to read, study, and teach God's word because through it He speaks to us, calling us into his presence.

John Helton

Associate Minister

I currently serve as the Associate Minister here at South Side. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio where I attended Cincinnati Christian University and graduated with a BS in Youth & Children's Ministry. When not at work, I spend my time in Chicago, watching Netflix, or watching sports. I am most passionate about the Cincinnati Reds, superheroes, food, and youth ministry. My goal for my ministry is to partner with families in leading their kids to Christ, and to show them God's unchanging love during their often trying teenage years. I hope to see you this Sunday at 10:30!

I was hired as the Preschool teacher's aide/secretary in 1986. Then in 1996 I was offered the position as teacher and later offered the position of Preschool Director. It seems just like yesterday when I began teaching here. Now I am teaching some of my students' children. I love being a part of the children's first school experience.
