Pastor & Lois Blonn
 
 
In 1978 two separate groups, Faith Word Ministries, under Bill Blonn,
and Calvary Independent Church, led by Ron Brown, merged together to become known as The King's Community Church.  By 1981 Pastor Brown had stepped into glory, and Pastor Bill Blonn assumed the office
of Senior Pastor.
 
Under the leadership of Pastor Blonn and his wife Lois, the church continued to grow and soon a larger meeting space was needed. Then in 1984 we purchased an "onion warehouse" which we renovated, and soon began to hold services in our new location in South Holland. Five years
later we added a gymnasium and worship center which tripled the size of the facility. Since then our Children's Ministry has met in the old worship center, while our Youth Group  has met in their own youth center in the gymnasium.
 
In August of 2003 Pastor Bill and Lois retired from full time ministry and installed the associate minister, Pete Tassio, as the new senior Pastor. Pastor Pete and his wife Debbie have been in relationship with Bill and Lois since 1976, and started full time ministry in the King's Community under Pastor Blonn in August of 1984. On October 7, 2006 Pastor Blonn, at the age of 79, entered the presence of the Lord. Although he is greatly missed, we continue to experience God's abundant blessings, grace and guidance; a tribute to God's faithfulness and keeping power.
