Personal Bio

Born and raised in Indiana, Michael Poorman is a die-hard fan of the Indianapolis Colts.  Before coming to Parkview, Michael, his wife Alison, daughter Maddie, and son Caleb lived in Indianapolis.  When he is not cheering on his favorite team, Michael enjoys spending time with family and friends, exploring the outdoors, and running.  He has run The Chicago Marathon with Team World Vision 3 times! Completing his education at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana, Michael received a Bachelor of Arts in Education.  At Parkview Community Church, Michael serves as the Operations Pastor and it is his responsibility to ensure the church is operationally strong. This includes overall “operational readiness” as it pertains to facilities management, supply management, and security.  Michael also strives to help others find their purpose and uses Ephesians 2:10 as his guide: “ For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”  Driven by the values of honesty, integrity, and servanthood, Michael’s strong leadership skills help him lead the First Impressions of Parkview and is committed to the meaningful connection of its attenders.

On August 26, 2021, IL Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an Executive Order mandating that masks be worn at all indoor gatherings. Although churches are exempt from the Executive Order, out of respect for governing authorities, Parkview has continued to ask staff, leaders, volunteers, and those attending Sunday gatherings to wear a mask while indoors. We are grateful for our people’s understanding and willingness to do so. The Governor recently indicated that his Executive Order will be rescinded on Monday, February 28th making masks no longer required in most indoor settings. In anticipation of that, on Sunday, February 27th Parkview will return to a “mask optional” policy.

While the mask policy has once again shifted, our commitment to your health and wellbeing has not. We remain dedicated to thoroughly cleaning our public spaces before and after our gatherings. Masks and hand sanitizer are still readily available to those who want them.

Navigating these difficult days has not always been clear or easy. Whatever your perspective on current realities, as fellow Christians, let us allow kindness, grace and compassion characterize our interaction and relationships. In the words of the Apostle Paul, “Let us be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

I look forward to being with you on Sundays.
Grace and Peace,
Ray S. Kollbocker
Lead Pastor
