Louis C. Love Jr.

Born and raised in South Bend, IN, Louis Love serves as the pastor of New Life Fellowship Church in Vernon Hills, IN, which he planted in 1997. What began as a church plant built upon the expository preaching of the Word of God quickly blossomed into a heart-felt urgency to spread the truth of the historic teachings of the Reformation to the people of central Lake County. Before the church plant, he served as the pastor of New Hope Baptist Church and New Life Baptist Church. Joyfully married, Louis and his wife, Jamie, have three adult children and eight grandchildren. In his spare time, Louis can be found reading and discussing theological works from the Puritan era, rummaging second-hand bookstores and, weather permitting, grilling for family and friends.

To see more of Louis’ story, see his chapter “The Doors of the Church are Opened!” in the book “Glory Road: The Journeys of Ten African Americans into Reformed Christianity” (Crossway, 2012).
