Who we are

Christ Healing Evangelical Church (USA) Inc., a non-profit religious church organization, was founded on the 15th of February 1993 and was incorporated by April 15th, 2003. The church was an evolution of what started as a house fellowship meeting in the rented apartment of Pastor Talabi at 5817 N. Kenmore Avenue on the North Side of the city of Chicago, to encourage and strengthen fellow Africans and friends from different backgrounds. According to the direction and the leading of the Holy Spirit, and under the leadership of Pastor Adegboyega A. Talabi, the fellowship gathered momentum with increased attendance of people from different backgrounds, and a vision was born.

There was a spiritual yearning and a need for identity among those who were present then, as the number of families grew to 15 within one month. Having received strong commitment from the people, Pastor Adegboyega A. Talabi then organized the members who would constitute the original incorporators of Christ Healing Evangelical Church (USA Inc.) in 1993.

The Church continued to grow by leaps and bounds, enjoying tremendous growth in the years following.

As the membership began to grow, the church moved from the apartment into a storefront at 2422 W. Schubert Avenue on the near north side of Chicago, and there it continued to enjoy great success.

After its 10th-year anniversary in 2003, the church had grown to a membership in excess of 200 active members, including children. Therefore, there was a need for an expanded role of the church to care for the spiritual well-being of its membership through Christian worship, discipleship, and outreach. This necessitated a need for a bigger facility, and so the church leased another facility at 2324 W. Nelson Street, Chicago.

In 2002, with the collaboration of the Church leadership and the entire members, Pastor Talabi and his wife, through the leading of the Holy Spirit, led the church to acquire an 8.74-acre plot of land in South Holland, Illinois. Thereafter, through the commitment of its members and the community at large that made financial sacrifices toward the construction, Phase I of Chapel of Praise was completed and dedicated to the glory of God on June 20th, 2008.
