Connect City Church Leadership
Connect City Church launched on June 1st, 2014 by Pastors Nick and Jill Nelson. Together they have been in full time ministry since 2001, including youth pastors, discipleship directors, worship pastor, small groups coordinators and more!
Hi! I'm Nick. I have lived in Michigan most of my life, although I was born in Ohio. I have really enjoyed living in southwest Michigan since our family moved to Battle Creek in 2012 from the southeast part of the state. I didn't even know there were other colors besides maize and blue ;-)
Jill and I have been married since 2000 and have two kids, Kylah and Tyler. Leading 3C is a family thing for us. We also really like hanging at home, playing outside and watching a good movie! I like eating Mexican food and sipping on my fav drink, the raspberry white mocha. Water sports, ping pong and casual exercise keep me going but my fav is pastoring 3C!
One of my life verses is Deuteronomy 29:29. It reminds me that I'll never understand everything because I'm not God. It also encourages and challenges me to consistently do what I have learned and know to do according to His Word!
Hello! I'm Jill and I was born and raised here in the mitten ;-) I love Battle Creek more and more each day and I've known that there is plenty of color in the world we live in (not just maize and blue ;-) Anyways, I have always loved being around people and helping them live the life God has for them.
Nick and I have been married since 2000 and love our two kids, Kylah and Tyler, that God blessed us with. They both provide plenty of laughter, joy and character building in our home. I love that they both have a heart for God and the church! I really like Mexican food and (very) slowly sipping on a hot chocolate with extra whip. What's even better is enjoying that with someone else!
One of my life verses is Jeremiah 29:11. It really encourages me and reminds me that God has always, and continues to have a plan for my life. This includes an overall life-purpose as well as a reason for breathing today!
This is us! We love spending time together outside, inside, eating, drinking coffee or hot chocolate, playing and chilling on the couch with a good movie. We also really like connecting with people. 3C is a family thing. We love watching our kids interact with other kids and people of all ages. We get a #happyheart seeing them serve God's Kingdom and the local church on a regular basis!
