Speaker: Kurt Von Eschen- Worship Pastor- Willow Creek Community Church- Crystal Lake Campus- Crystal Lake, Illinois- United States

Kurt was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. His worship roots began as a young child by watching his Mom lead worship at a small Bible study in their home. His passion to serve others in worship was awakened after moving to Seattle, WA where he experienced powerful times of worship where God’s presence was evident. This ignited a purpose within Kurt that changed the course of his life. Kurt began his serving journey with kids, then students, young adults, and adult ministries.

Kurt is passionate about building God’s church and has a burning desire to see the church become radically engaged worshipers. His heart has always been to simply serve in whatever way is needed to serve God, the church, and to reach more people for Christ. In 2010, Kurt joined the Willow Creek creative team where he currently oversees the Worship and Tech ministries at the Crystal Lake regional campus.
Kurt spends a large portion of his time pastorally; coaching and developing individuals on his teams in skills, passion, and the heart of servant leadership.

Kurt has been leading worship for close to 30 years. 12 years as a paid staff and 18 as non-paid staff & &olunteer. He has served in churches from 8 to 25,000. Over the years, he has led worship nationally, internationally, and across multiple church conferences.

Kurt’s other passion is his family, being a husband to his wife of 18 years Mary, and father to his 4 kids: Grace, Judah, Zoe, and Torah. Kurt also enjoys playing sports, playing Xbox, and listening to the latest worship music.
