Who We Are

Family Christian Center, born as Evangelistic Temple, has been a part of the Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland community for over 50 years. Under the dynamic leadership of Senior Pastors Steve & Melodye Munsey, FCC continues to make a vital impact the region and across the nation. FCC is dedicated to reaching the lost at any cost, building the Church and establishing God’s Kingdom. FCC has gained a national reputation for the innovative use of the visual and dramatic arts. Pairing time-honored values of the founders, Bishop Frank & Ruth Munsey, with cutting edge leadership, FCC has become one of the fastest growing churches in America, expanding to multiple campuses (City Church – Chicago, IL) through the leadership of Pastors Kent & Alli Munsey.

Following the example of Jesus, Family Christian Center is committed to showing God’s love to a hurting world. Through the ministry of Operation Care, 5 million tons of food have been distributed to local families. The hospital ministry sends chaplains to 23 local hospitals. Those in 5 prisons in the Northwest Indiana-Chicagoland area receive hope for a new life through FCC’s prison ministry. In addition, FCC provides spiritual and financial help to missionaries in more than 10 countries, supporting orphanages, schools and churches through world missions. Locally, FCC is building lives through Equip, a ministry that provides free classes from quality instructors on a wide variety of subjects. In addition, those who are interested in a career in full time ministry have the opportunity to receive hands on training through FCC’s Cross College.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our services are specifically designed to reach every person in the audience no matter what your unique preference or style may be. We value the fundamentals, yet continue to find creative ways to connect the gospel with our everyday worlds. You can expect passionate worship, an opportunity to receive prayer for any need you may have, the ability to call a friend who may need prayer during our "cell phone prayer" time in the service and you can always expect an incredible message to be preached from Pastor Steve Munsey. We value creating opportunities for you to encounter Jesus no matter where you are at. Our pastoral team makes themselves available after the service to spend time with those in need. While you are enjoying your service time, know that your children are also experiencing a top level service that is relatable to their age group.

What is the community like?
Our community at family christian center is very diverse! We are a multi-cultural church that believes in the power of community. We are passionate about serving with our gifts and talents in the church and helping to impact our community and our personal worlds. We value family and the next generation. It's very common to see an entire family serving on a team!

What if I'm not a Christian?
If you are not a christian, and are simply "seeking," you will love our church. Pastor Steve goes out of his way to find unique and creative ways to present the gospel to a sight and sound generation. You never know what to expect - horses, camels, fireworks, story time, but know that you will always find a place and a space to encounter Jesus.
