Jill Richardson serves as Lead Pastor at Resolution Church in Chicagoland. She has published five books and contributed to others from Lillenas Publishing House and Christianity Today. Favorite topics for writing, speaking, and Facebook ranting include: grace, the terrible messages we send to teenagers, risk taking and fighting fear, communicating with and learning from the Millennial generation, being a Christian in a post-Christian world (without being a jerk), church, writing, missions, and travel. Her MDiv comes from Bethel Seminary in St Paul with an emphasis in theology and preaching, and she is in the midst of a doctorate program at Gordon-Conwell in Leadership in a Changing Church Context. In another age, she also studied English at Washington University. She has an unnatural love for Middle-earth, chocolate marzipan, old musicals, fish tacos, and Earl Grey. She believes in Jesus, grace, restoration, kindness, justice, and the Cubs. Her passion is her tagline: Picturing Faith with the Next Generation. She can be found at jillmrichardson.com.
