Welcome To Progressive
Worship Experience

You are in the right place at the right time, to experience the true and unconditional love of God. We are committed to ministering to the whole man, the natural and the spiritual. We are located at 4500 Frontage Road, Hillside, IL 60162, a western suburb of the Chicagoland area. Here at Progressive Ministries we serve and provide outreach throughout our local communities of Melrose Park, Maywood, Broadview, Bellwood, Berkeley, Westchester and Hillside.

Progressive is a non-denominational, full gospel, spirit filled church. The spiritual leaders of this house are Senior Pastor, Apostle Donald L. Alford and First Lady, Pastor Gloria Alford.

Whether you’re single, married, single again, with or without children – no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done – we invite you to experience the difference here. Jesus loves you just the way you are! Progressive Life-Giving Word Cathedral is made up of less than complete people, just like you, following Jesus – it’s a place where hurts are healed, needs are met, and dreams become reality.

Life brings many seasons of love and happiness, sadness and pain. Many times the hard seasons may cause tears to come. Romans 8:37 says "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." Therefore, we are Raising Conquerors for Victorious Living.
