About My Family

I grew up in Brainerd, Minn., where I learned to love baseball, broom ball and spending all my time with close friends. I am married to the beautiful Natika Nichols and am the father of two joy-filled, strong-willed babies. I am currently transitioning into the full-time work of church planting. I love local sports, books, blogs and roundtable discussions and am not afraid of a question I can't answer. When I am not at home or in the office, you can locate me at one of the local coffee shops. Feel free to pop in. I love people more than projects and am probably looking for a distraction anyway.

About My Church Plant

My aim is to plant a healthy church somewhere in the greater Minneapolis metro. 

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.
