SENIOR PASTOR, Richard Mosley, Jr.
Rev. Richard Mosley, Jr., was called out of retirement to serve Hartzell Memorial United Methodist Church in Chicago, IL. For over 26 years, Rev. Mosley served congregations in the Northern Illinois Conference of the United Methodist Church, including North Lawndale, Oak Park, Morgan Park, Waukegan and Evanston. Pastor Mosley's education includes certification from the Harvard Divinity School Leadership Institute for Faith-based Community and Economic Development, the Kellogg Executive Scholars Certificate Non-profit Management Program at Northwestern University, and "The Art of Organizing for Democratic Change and the Mission of Liberation" from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. Former Executive Board service includes Protestants for the Common Good; the Evanston Housing Commission, Connections for the Homeless, and Interfaith Action in Evanston and the Open Communities of Evanston. His passion for social justice and improving lives inspired him to create an endowment for Curt's Café, a restaurant-based job training program that aims to keep young people out of the criminal justice system, and he received the Curt's Café Life Changer Award in 2016. He has served as a teaching pastor at the University of Chicago Divinity School, McCormick Theological Seminary and Garrett-Evangelical Seminary.
