“Preaching is an avenue that helps students unpack the amazing gift of the Gospel.” – Nick Person
“Be who you are and use the tools God gave you when you preach.” – Nick Person
Nick Person has been in full-time ministry for twenty-plus years which truly is a gift from the Lord. The thing he is most proud of is not his years in ministry but the family with which the Lord has blessed him. He has been married to his best friend and the better half of their dynamic duo for almost 16 years, they have three pretty amazing kids, Ava, 13, Jax, 11, and their youngest Nash, 7. He currently works outside Nashville where he gets to fill the role as Teaching and Next Steps pastor. He loves a good burger, a cup of coffee, and a movie that will make him cry and laugh. He worked in student ministry for 14 of his years in full-time ministry, but still gets to travel and invest in students. He feels like he will always play a role in the lives of students as long as he can.
