Phil Pace - Connections Pastor

McHenry born and raised, Phil Pace and his wife, Donna, have four children, one son-in law and two beautiful grandkids! The Paces have had a connection with LHC since its inception but started attending regularly in 2021 when they moved back to the McHenry area. They bring nearly 30 years of ministry experience to LHC having served in various roles such as youth ministry, worship leading (Phil), cross cultural church planting in Italy and administrative work with Avant Ministries in Kansas City. Phil also gained a love for coffee while working for a nonprofit coffee house in the Kansas City’s urban core. Service, helps and hospitality are his primary gifts and he is passionate about helping people experience God’s goodness through worship. Phil is a self-proclaimed coffee snob and would love nothing more than to meet with you over a good cup of coffee.
