Thomas McArthur

Campus Pastor The Chapel Mundelein


Thomas grew up on a corn and bean farm in rural Iowa and met his wife and Marybethe while attending Iowa State University. The two were married in1997 and, together, have four sons who keep them busy attending sporting events and theatre shows. Some of their favorite activities as a family include going hiking at Lake Michigan, taking Cinder (the family dog) for walks, and finding fun places to eat in the city. God called Thomas into full-time ministry in 2007 after 13+ years in the marketplace, and he’s been with The Chapel ever since. Thomas loves connecting with residents of Mundelein, meeting people where they are in their spiritual life, and helping them experience life in the Kingdom of God.


As Campus Pastor at Mundelein since 2010, I’ve seen our campus continue to grow in its passion for the community and focus to make a difference. Located in a residential area and just down the street from Mundelein High School, we are strategically positioned to reach our community. One of the unique ways we make a difference for people is through outreach ministries such as Free Lunch Friday, where we serve free lunch at our church once a month to Juniors and Seniors from MHS. While our church facility may look small, we offer a powerful and intimate worship and relational space across three services each weekend. From our thriving Chapel Students ministry for middle school and high school students, our Chapel Kids ministry for infants through 5th grade, to our weekly Thursday night prayer meetings, we are seeing lives transformed and impacted by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.


Join us this SUNDAY at 9AM and 11AM for a time of worship, teaching from God’s word and fellowship.


Get connected with one of our kingdom communities and a group of friends ready to run hard after God together!



Chapel Kids is the children’s ministry at The Chapel. It is our desire to partner with parents to raise up children that carry the Christianity of Jesus, pray heaven to Earth, are a force for good and belong to the greater kingdom community. We currently offer Chapel Kids on Sundays at 9AM & 11AM for students K-5th grade. Weekly lessons are also available online!


Chapel Students is for students grades 6-12. Our student ministry is designed to help your student come alive to God and learn how to live an all-in life as a follower of Christ.

Chapel Students meets every Wednesday at The Chapel Mundelein from 7:00-8:45PM.
