Edwin and Jackie Melendez have been the Senior Pastors of Culture City Church since 2002.


After planting two churches, one in Milwaukee, WI and one in Cleveland, OH, they were called back home to Chicago to take over the church where they both came to know Christ.


Their passion is to reach people by representing God through love and the teaching of the Gospel. Over the years, they've dedicated their lives to the local church and maintain a vision to change the culture by helping people find their purpose in Christ.


Their family consists of three sons, three daughters-in-law, and five grandchildren.
