Aaron and Nicole Olinski

Lead Pastors

Aaron and Nicole were married after graduating from Oral Roberts University in May 1998. Pastor Aaron began serving in ministry with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes immediately after graduating. Then in 1999, both Aaron and Nicole were hired to lead the Youth and Children’s Ministries at a church here in Melbourne. Their first son Drew was born in 2002, and second, Derek, in 2004. When Derek was only one week old their family moved to Jacksonville, FL to help plant Oak Leaf Christian Fellowship as part of the pastoral team.

Then in July of 2009 they moved back to Melbourne to plant Grace Church Melbourne as the Lead Pastors and rounded out a trio of boys by welcoming their son Dex.
