Welcome to Dr. Jim Renke and his wife Kris.

The UMR RLT is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Jim Renke as the next UMR Regional Minister. Dr. Renke is currently Sr. Pastor at our Village Green Church in Glen Ellyn IL. He has served there for over 13 years leading it through a building project, adding multiple services, incorporating a Hispanic ministry, and helping the church engage with other local evangelical churches on missional projects within the local community. Dr. Renke has also been the cluster leader for the IL pastors and has served on the UMR RLT for the past couple years. Jim and Kris are the parents of 4 adult sons and are the proud grandparents of a very special granddaughter.

Dr. Renke will take over the role of RM on April 15th. After that time Tim Blackburn will still be available to serve as requested, but requests will need to go through Dr. Renke moving forward. If you wish to make contact with Dr. Renke and welcome him, here is his contact info:
