Fred and Erica Kirstein

Great Commission Ministries

IlliniLife Christian Fellowship

Fred and Erica both grew up right here in Roselle. Fred came to know the Lord through the Awana ministry here at Medinah Baptist Church and was later able to share his faith with Erica. Both went to school at the University of Illinois where God truly transformed their character and priorities. After graduation, Fred felt the call to pursue campus ministry full-time. Fred has now served with Great Commission Ministries for almost six years at the University of Illinois. He and Erica were married in December of 2006 and both now live in Champaign. They serve with a campus mission called IlliniLife Christian Fellowship where they are heavily involved with discipleship and outreach to undergraduate students. Fred is also continuing to pursue a Masters of Arts in Religion at a local seminary.
