Pastor Bice has been serving in pastoral ministry since graduating from seminary in 1982. He grew up in a pastor’s family in Ohio and the Chicago suburbs. His ministry has taken him to churches in Indiana, Tennessee, and Vermont before returning “home” to Illinois. In 2002, he and his family came to Sterling, and Pastor Bryan has served as our pastor ever since.
Pastor and Chris have two adult children, two grandsons, and two granddaughters. In addition to a love for the pastorate, they enjoy outdoor activities, especially hiking and biking. They’ve hiked beautiful trails in Vermont, New York, New Hampshire, Maine, South Carolina, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, California, Alaska, Utah, Nevada, and the Grand Canyon. Pastor’s bucket list includes hiking the entire Long Trail in Vermont.
