We’re a community of university-aged adults from campuses and neighborhoods all throughout Chicago. We gather to use the ancient text of the Bible to navigate the present crossroads of university life and young adulthood.
This season of life is often when we start to grapple with big questions: Where do we come from? (Origin) Why are we here? (Purpose) Are good & evil real? (Morality) What happens to us when we die? (Destiny) We’re also making decisions about higher education, work, marriage, family, politics, and religion. Life is a gift—complex, wonderful, and terrifying—and best lived in community. Join us as we journey with God as our guide.

Our annual retreat at Gull Lake Ministries
October 7-9, 2022


Pastor Eric and Rebecca Targe are passionate about discipling and reaching university students for God’s Kingdom. They live on  the southside of Chicago with their daughter (“Cece”) and son (“Teddy”). Rebecca is a Chicago-Native and is a Registered Nurse, working in women’s health at a downtown Chicago hospital. Eric is originally from New York and is the Pastor of University Students and Disability Ministries at The Moody Church; and an adjunct professor at Moody Bible Institute.


When not playing with his kids or hanging out with his wife, you can find Pastor Eric searching for new and peculiar restaurants throughout Chicago, reading a good book, playing board games, or cheering for the New York Yankees.
