Rev. Jerry Bimber, Senior Pastor


Reverend Jerry Bimber has been the pastor at Lombard since 1999. The son of a pastor, he has lived a lot of places, but Findlay, OH is what he thinks of when he thinks of home. He attended Hobe Sound Bible College for three years, but is a graduate of Malone College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

He is married to Kathy, and together they have four children: Jack, Lauren, Brooke, and Taylor. 

He has served on numerous boards and church committees, and is currently a member of the Lombard Lions Club. In his down time, he enjoys reading, family time, and sports of all kinds. As pastors go, he still has a mean fastball!
