Nick Intintoli, Praise Team Leader.
Nick's love for worshiping with music began as a child singing in the Children's Choir at his home church in Arizona. As a member of Peace for 10 years, Nick has been involved with the music ministry throughout that time. In addition to leading our Praise Team since the beginning of 2018, Nick is on the church council where he is responsible for worship & music and the communications/IT committees.
