Rev. Dick Wisdom

The Aurora District is composed of 82 clergy and 66 churches from Sugar Grove to Yorkville to Morris on the west side all the way to Lombard, Orland Park and Wilmington on the east side. It is rich in diversity, gifts, and graces as clergy and laity together seek to make the love of Christ a reality in each community. As this new district webpage develops, visit it often as we plan to add new material regularly. In the meantime Godspeed in your journey of faith and discipleship!
