A letter from Pastor Hutz Hertzberg

Dear Friends:

Just yesterday (Sunday), Pastor Lutzer and I announced to our congregation how the Lord is leading Lynne and myself to our next ministry chapter……and wanted to share this update with you as well.

After almost seven years of full and wonderfully challenging ministry as Executive Pastor here at The Moody Church, we have come to the conclusion after a remarkable series of providences, confirmations, along with counsel and prayer that God is calling us to serve as the first Executive Director of a new organization: The Orchard Network (incorporated name – actual name may change). The Orchard Network in a newly formed 501c3 with its own board and staff – birthed out of The Orchard Church with campuses currently in Arlington Heights; Barrington and Itasca. Rev. Colin Smith serves as the Senior Pastor.

The focus of The Orchard Network is to mentor and deploy a multitude of next generation Gospel leaders primarily for the church as pastors, planters and re-starters. This equipping and sending will be in partnership with many other churches, seminaries and organizations.

Our last day at The Moody Church will be October 15th. The exact starting date with The Orchard Network is yet to be determined.

Your prayers are greatly appreciated for the significant transition demands for both us, and The Moody Church in these coming weeks.

Gratefully His and yours,
