Nicholas joined the staff in 2016 and currently oversees our ministry to students (grades 7-12). Nicholas also oversees our community outreaches. Prior to coming to Bridge, Nicholas planted churches in Pittsburgh and Brooklyn with the CityReach Network and saw many people come to Christ. BCC’s vision is to begin planting churches in 2017 and Nicholas will be instrumental in developing a strategy that will move us closer to this goal.
Nick & his wife, Georgia are both graduates of the University of Valley Forge and have a heart to see lives changed by the power of God. A native to Lansdale, Nick moved back to the area with Georgia in August of 2015. On any given day, you may see Nick building relationships with people in town or hanging out at Main Street Pizza. Watch out! The self-proclaimed “Prince of Lansdale” has returned and he has a mission to share God’s love with our community.
