  • Sergei Marchenko,
    Teaching Pastor & Elder (staff)

    Pastor Sergei was born in Kyiv, Ukraine. Raised in a non-religious, post-Soviet family, he met Christ at age 16 through American missionary neighbors. Sergei is a graduate of Moody Bible Institute and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and is ordained in the EFCA. He served in Kyiv for 3 years, and spent 8 years as pastor of Christian Fellowship Free Church in Chicago before coming to Chatham in 2015. Sergei and his wife, Gillian, a published author, live in Hazelwood with their daughters, Elaina, Zoya, Polina and Evangeline. Polly and Evie, who was adopted from Ukraine, both have special needs, and the family is glad to be involved in the special needs community.

  • Ben Rico, Worship Leader (staff)

    Ben joined our staff in 2016. He previously studied cello performance at North Park University, where he became increasingly involved in worship leading. Ben’s fervor for serving and leading his church and university communities in worship of Christ quietly grew until God directed him to Chatham. He continues to write and perform music both inside and outside the church. Ben loves grabbing coffee with people to learn their stories of faith and connect with them. Ben and his wife, Linnea, live in University City.

  • Sarah Gregor, Office Manager (staff)

    Sarah is usually the first voice you’ll hear if you call the church office. She’s served on staff since 2002, honing outreach skills along the way. Having grown up attending church but not truly knowing Jesus until her 20s, Sarah embraces opportunities to help people better understand the Gospel. She also loves worshiping the Lord in song with Chatham’s Praise Band. Sarah and her musical husband, Paul, are both lifelong St. Louis area natives who grew up in North County. They currently live in West County along with their parrot, Shamrock.
