Nick started attending East Valley Church when he became involved in the youth group in junior high about 25 years ago. He and his wife, Arlene have four growing children, Niko, Penny, Piper and Presley.
Nick asked Jesus into his heart at the age of 6 with the guidance of his parents. He was baptized at the age of 11 by immersion. He started to take his walk more seriously as a junior in high school when his youth pastor recognized him as a leader and encouraged him to "step up his game". In college, Nick served as a part-time missionary as a junior high student ministries coordinator for Santa Clara Valley Youth For Christ. He also served under Pastor Pat in youth ministries at East Valley during that time and for a total of 12 years. Nick has served in college group ministries, pastoral search teams and in more recent time, lead a small group for young married couples alongside his wife Arlene for several years. They also serve as Sunday School teachers for elementary ages. He currently serves on the East Valley Church Ministry Planning Group and helps out on Tuesday nights with "Big House". Nick enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, coaching Niko's sports teams, camping, barbecuing and short walks on the beach. He loves the Oakland A's, Golden State Warriors and even the future Las Vegas Raiders because he says the "Raider Nation" is everywhere.
