Senior Pastor


Jim Nicodem has been the senior pastor of Christ Community Church since its start in 1984. Born and raised in the Midwest, Jim received his BA from Wheaton College and his MDiv. and Doctor of Ministries from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Jim and his wife, Sue, have been married for more than thirty years and have three grown children. He loves to hang out in Chicago, where he can watch the Cubs play (no better park than Wrigley) or listen to the world-class Symphony Orchestra. The local Starbucks also sees a lot of Jim, accompanied by books (mostly biographies) or friends. Other hobbies include hiking and biking. 

He is also the author of two works: Prayer Coach and Bible Savvy. The topics of prayer and Bible study have been life-long pursuits and passions to help people grow in their walk with Christ.
