Pastoral Staff - Peoples Church

Pastoral Staff

Executive Pastor Nick Pacholski and his wife Amy

We've been attending Peoples Church since 2004 and are happy to call it home! I've worked as a social worker for several years working with adults, teens, and children while also serving as the Youth Pastor. In the fall of 2015, I transitioned from social work and now serve as the Executive Pastor. Amy works for Kankakee Trinity Academy as a Preschool teacher. We have been married since June of 2009 and spend the majority of our free time chasing around our three little girls, Makayla, Kinleigh, and Emerlynn! We have a passion and vision to reach our community by coming along side and empowering young people and their families.

"I was called to Peoples Church in October 2011 and absolutely love the direction God is taking us as a church. My passion is to love and serve people with the gifts and graces God has given me as a Worship Arts Pastor. It is my desire to encourage and equip people to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ through participation in worship, music, drama, visual arts, sound ministry and media ministry.

"I am extremely grateful for the unending support of my husband Bob. He is retired from business management and is an Engineering Professor at Olivet Nazarene University. We enjoy spending time with our three children and three grandchildren."

Rachel and I have been married since 2006.  We were recently reconnected to Peoples Church in 2016.  We were eager to get connected and it didn't take much time at all.  Our kids love the children's programs and look forward to coming to church each Sunday.  I started out in music ministry as a teenager at a small church in Momence, IL and have been excited to get involved and use my passion for the Lord.  Peoples Church has given my family the connection we needed and has allowed us to grow.  My hope is to see you and your family drawn closer to God through the church and the music ministry. 

Doreen and I grew up in Kankakee. We got acquainted when Doreen's family began attending church. She was 11 and I was 12 and we have been friends all these years. We began ministry as youth pastors in our home church. We have pastored in the Chicago area as well as Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan. In conjunction with pastoring I have served as K thru 12 principal in schools in Chicago and Milwaukee, as well as serving as campus pastor at Bay de Noc College in Escanaba, MI. I currently do a Sunday morning radio broadcast over short wave radio that reaches 68 countries. We love it here at People's and looking for a long relationship as we work together.
