Testimony: It was in his middle school years that Nick really had his first exposure to the Gospel and to church, through a youth group bowling event. That was the beginning of his being at church to hear God’s Word (even though he was the only one from his family to do so). It was on a Sunday morning that he responded to an altar call and made his commitment to follow Christ. Soon after, as he grew as a Christ-follower himself, he also became a key leader in his youth group, encouraged and mentored by his youth pastor and a couple of the key volunteers in the youth ministry. During the summer between his junior and senior years of high school he worked with a ministry called Mission Arlington (in Texas), an experience that challenged him spiritually and physically, teaching him to rely on God more deeply than he ever had before. It was during that summer of ministry that Nick sensed God’s call to full-time pastoral ministry.
