Derrick Gaetke

Derrick has been attending Church of the Beloved since October 2016, first at Downtown and then as a regular member of the South Loop campus upon its launch. He joined the Pastoral Search Committee out of a desire to serve the church that he’s called home for almost five years. He hopes that with the coming of new leadership the church can enter a new phase of serving Christ and continuing to spread the Gospel to Chicago and beyond. Whenever he finds a spot of free time he enjoys reading, playing games (video and board), and relaxing with his wife and their four cats.
