*NOTE* (I'LL BE TRAVELING FROM JULY 3RD TO THE 17TH SO COMMUNICATION MAY BE SPOTTY)*NOTE* The south Parking lot. Water fill available but not close enough to parking location for RV's to stay hooked up. The parking lot has a good grade going from West to East so we suggest parking North South along the woods and grassy field. Menards, Aldi, Walmart and plenty of dining close by. RV center is also just down the street. Suggested Local Attractions:Starve Rock State Park, Joliet Prison (many movies filmed here), Route 66 Museum, Rialto Square Theatre We have a biking and walking trail just across the street.

Age:

55-65

I'm a Pastor, a Patriot and I enjoy RVing and Motorcycling. Details: I'm a Husband, a father and a pastor. While I was born in MI my family jokes that I'm a native Floridian. I'd love it if God called me to serve in FL or TN someday but I'm confidant that I'm currently serving where He has called. When I'm done with my current call I'd love to travel the country in my RV serving churches as an interim pastor, pulpit fill or even plant a church at a camp ground someday. Home Town: My home town is Sterling Hgts. MI. I'm a missionary currently ministering to the peoples of Illinois in the Chicago land area. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Don't know yet Skills or Expertise to Share: I'm a chef as well as a pastor.

    Host was very friendly and gracious- thank you for the hospitality! Church parking lot with a good amount of space and privacy. We stayed here while visiting Chicago and it worked well for us as a home base.

    Great location, fairly level. Communication was great, had no issues getting to the location. Plenty of space to turn around and to either unhook a toad or keep it connected. Near lots of shopping, restaurants and ice cream (Stricklands). Thank you again!

    Great place to stay and start our Route 66 journey. Thanks so much to our host for sending us tips for finding propane, pizza, touristy spots we needed after he met us at the parking area. The walking path on the fronting road was great for pup walks too.

    our stay at Messiah was super quiet and the location has easy access to all Joliet and even Chicago has to offer. Hosts were super nice ans there waa lots of space. Thank you Messiah for hosting us as we began our Route 66 cross county adventure!

    There is plenty of room at Messiah. I only have a mini camper, but this would be ideal for a big rig.
