Nick's days studying at Indiana University's business school were characterized by the ministry he served in as a student. In 2015-2016, Nick continued on this work entering into full-time ministry aimed at sharing the gospel with college students on IU's campus through the organization Cru. One of his disciples during this time was Randy Gooder's youngest son Jonny. Through his friendship with Jonny, Indy Vineyard became Nick's place of healing, whenever he was back home in Indianapolis. In December of 2021, Nick moved back to Indianapolis and has cherished getting to dive back into the vineyard community and a chance to step up and serve students once again. Nick has been passionately pursuing a love of rock climbing since his freshman year of college 11 years ago and has traveled all over the country, Canada, Mexico and Spain climbing up 1000s of feet and has even "slept" on the side of a rock wall. Nick's joy is his strength and his laugh can often be heard echoing through the youth room.
