Rev. Steve Wu
Last Wednesday I was perturbed when I read an article about Willow Creek Chicago's Rev. Steve Wu and his stepping down because of "sexual impurity. I'm not just talking about the plethora of rants on how Rev. Wu's misgivings are an example on how religion is false. We will probably never know what happened with Rev. Wu and frankly, I don't want to know. I respect Rev. Wu's privacy. He is probably married and has a family. The thing that gets me is that the best that Willow Creek, this bastion of seeker-sensitiveness, could only issue a short explanation that Wu had fallen into sexual impurity. That's it? Don't you think that, in a time like this, the church can be more forthright in what it believes so that the world doesn't think we're some veiled community whose practices are ancient and steeped in tradition? Sure, everyone in the Christian community knows what is happening to Wu, counseling, accountability, spiritual guidance - all of that.

The pastor, Rev. Steve Wu, could not be reached, and the church would specify what took place.
Wu, 43, moved from California's Silicon Valley in early 2006, hired by senior pastor Rev. Bill Hybels to lead Willow Creek Chicago, the downtown branch of the South Barrington-based church. Under Wu, Willow Creek Chicago began holding Sunday services at the historic Auditorium Theatre in October 2006, becoming Willow Creek's fifth campus and drawing a diverse congregation of more than 1,200 worshipers to the new church. "We would ask you to pray diligently for Steve in these difficult days," the statement concluded. Wu has a unique background, with roots in corporate and ministry settings. In Silicon Valley, Wu held leadership roles in Genesis Technology Inc. and Twin Peaks Software. After that, he entered religious life and started a church. Before moving to Chicago, he was a pastor at Crosswinds Church in the San Francisco Bay area. In the 2006 church news release announcing his arrival, Wu expressed excitement about his new role as pastor of Willow Chicago. "I so look forward to the day we can say, 'Look what God has done in this place,' " he said.

Wu first became familiar with the Chicago campus when he briefly visited a monthly gathering last October.The next day, driving back to Chicago after meeting with Small in Barrington, Wu said he felt the tap of the Holy Spirit and knew God was calling him to Chicago.Wu said he initially had objections about moving to Chicago, and was particularly opposed to the prospect of leaving California's warm weather and fishing."In the weeks to come, my heart completely changed," Wu told the gathering of approximately 250 congregants."I fell in love with the city." Wu spent years working in California's Silicon Valley providing leadership in various capacities to Genesis Technology, Inc. and Twin Peaks Software.Then, twelve years ago, he started a church and most recently served as a pastor at Crosswinds Church in the San Francisco Bay Area.With his initial objections about moving to Chicago behind him, Wu is now committed to building Willow Creek's Chicago campus."I so look forward to the day we can say, ,Look what God has done in this place,'" Wu said.
