Meet the Pastor


Ed Taylor | Lead Pastor

Ed married his best friend, Kim – who is awesome at everything that he is terrible at – in 1988, and they have two kids. Their son, Edwin, is a Columbia College Chicago grad and professional photographer, and their daughter, Janelle, is the lead singer/songwriter for Arcade At Midnight. Ed is a movie junkie, a singer/songwriter, a mediocre guitar player, a fan of N.T. Wright and C.S. Lewis, and he ran his first (and probably his last) half marathon in September 2012.

Ed is a graduate of Lincoln Christian University and has been full-time in ministry since 2005. Ed planted Quest Church in Arlington Heights, in 2013, and since November 2015 has also been leading The Anchor.
