Leadership Team

ChristLife functions because every member has a role to play: not just the pastor! From custodians to nursery stewards and everyone in between— we're so thankful for the opportunities God's given each of us to serve Him!

Pastor Jeff Warix

Jeff Warix

Senior Pastor

Jeff worked in the business world for many years before answering God's call to the ministry. In 1992, he sold his home in Delhi, quit his job, and pulled out all the stops. God ended up sending Jeff, his wife Debbie, and their 9 children to Utah to work for 10 years as Missionary Church Planters before calling them back to Illinois. Jeff began at ChristLife in 2010.
Jeff is anxious to equip each Christian with the spiritual tools they need as well as to see them use those tools for God!
