Meet the Senior Pastor - Peoples Church
Meet the Pastor

Senior Pastor Greg Eilders: "My wife Elaine and I have been in ministry since 1984, serving as youth pastors for 4 years and one previous pastorate in Minnesota, prior to moving back home to Bourbonnais, IL in October, 2000. We had a burden to reach the hurting, wounded, and lost in Kankakee County.

"We have overseen the building of a new worship facility in Bourbonnais, IL. The church has seen steady growth from small beginnings, to a thriving congregation now worshipping in two services on Sunday, with an emphasis on discipleship in order to reach the community to which we have been called. Peoples Church is a positive influence in the area, with many active ministries to impact our community.

"Elaine and I have three children: Nate is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University with a degree in Business. He is an outside sales representative with a major electrical supply company. Nate married Megan Sherman on July 12, 2014. Preston is also a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University with a degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. He is employed as a microbiologist at a pharmaceutical company and married Jade Dralle on June 1, 2012. Alyssa is a recent graduate of Olivet Nazarene University with a degree in Marketing. She married Clay Bass on August 4, 2013.

"Each one is involved in some form of ministry at Peoples Church as well."
