Crusaders Church in Chicago under the leadership of Apostle John Eckhardt, is the headquarters church and international apostolic base for the IMPACT Network. Crusaders is a powerful inner-city church not only impacting Chicago, but with a vision and divine mandate to bring apostolic reformation to the nations.

Having started as a small storefront church, it has grown to almost 4,000 in weekly attendance meeting in several locations. Apostle Eckhardt has developed the church as a training center, equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. Thousands have been trained in intercession, praise and worship, spiritual warfare, deliverance, gifts of the Spirit, evangelism, and prophetic and apostolic ministry.

Crusaders Church is patterned after the Biblical model of the Antioch Church from the book of Acts. Antioch was a multi-cultural apostolic sending church that released ministries to influence the world for the Kingdom of God. Strong anointed leaders have been raised up at Crusaders, with many apostolic and prophetic teams having been sent out to minister in the nations, always seeing tremendous results.

Crusaders is also known as a church of powerful praise and prophetic “Tabernacle of David” worship - a place where believers gather to worship and seek His face, expecting to experience the presence and glory of God.

If you are in the Chicago area, we invite you to be a part of our services. Your life will never be the same!
