Face Time with Jim Popovich

Geneva resident Jim Popovich, 46, was at work as executive pastor of his church, The Well in Geneva, when he answered nine questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.  

Where did you grow up? Ruskin, Fla.

Who would play you in the movie of your life? Rocky – Sylvester Stallone. I don’t mean that in any biased way, I just loved his heart.

First job? I was a pool man for my father’s pool maintenance company.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A baseball player. I became a pastor instead. We planted this church, but we also planted another church in Wheaton, called Life Church.

A book or movie you’d recommend? “Deep and Wide: Creating Churches Unchurched People Love to Attend” by Andy Stanley and the movie is “Parental Guidance”

Favorite charity? Making Waves

Hobbies? Guitar player in The Well Worship Team. I love football and basketball, too.

Favorite local restaurant? Tusk Thai in Batavia

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I literally ran into Mike Tyson at a mall, walked right into him. We bumped shoulders walking past each other. I turned around to talk to him, but one of his bodyguards stopped me.
