Michael raczak, council secretary
The Raczak family has resided in Naperville and attended Alleluia! since 1996. My wife Mimi and I have two adult daughters, Kristin and Anne.
My degrees include a Bachelor of Science in Education and Special Education and a Masters of Science in Special Education from Northern Illinois University.
In my early years at Alleluia, I participated as a member of the stewardship committee under Pastor Michael Nelson. This involvement spanned several years. I have also served as the Church Communicator for the Alleluia! Council for 2+ years. Although a non-voting member, I had the pleasure of assisting several Councils. In 2017-2018, I was elected to the Church Council as a full voting member.
Volunteer activities for the Raczaks have been varied throughout the years. They
have included: landscaping, Loaves and Fishes volunteer coordinator, DuPage Pads volunteer, communion servers, Alpha clean up crews, event night set-up crews, Race for a Mission volunteers, pancake breakfast crews, and Game Night scorekeepers.
I am currently retired. I have served children as a teacher, consultant, and special education administrator. For the last 20 years in my career, I was a principal in Indian Prairie District 204. I have also served several professional and community boards, which have included the Association of Persons with Severe Handicaps, Association of Illinois Middle Schools and the Indian Prairie District 204 Board of Education. In my tenure on each Board, I was blessed to serve as President.
