Commuter marriages create new ministry

Mark Eldred had been singing in the choir at Fourth Presbyterian Church for six years when love struck. A new season had begun, and Gillian Hollis walked into rehearsal after moving to Chicago to pursue her master’s degree at Northwestern. She took her place in the soprano section among several other new members. Eldred was drawn to her and managed to overhear her talking about swimming with one of the other choir members. As he approached her, he decided to introduce himself as a fellow swimmer. Six months later, they were dating. Today, they have been married for six years.
