Pastor Nick is featured in an article, “Genuinely Different Leaders for Genuinely Different Times,” published in Te Deum, the magazine of his alma mater, Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, Ohio. The article tells the stories of some of Trinity’s more recent graduates:

Trinity Days speaker Diana Butler Bass told her audience on September 29 that we are living in a time of "massive cultural change." Individuals have less confidence in their clergy than they did a decade ago. Fewer people attend worship. Many under age 40 did not attend church as a child. 

"This is our time, genuinely different and genuinely challenging," she said. "We have to figure out how to lead in times like these."

Some of Trinity’s more recent graduates have faced today’s challenges head on. They are guided by God and innovative  ideas—not big salaries or numbers in the pews. They are defined by vision and fortitude—not  years of experience. They have taken what they learned in seminary and proven themselves genuinely different leaders in genuinely challenging times. What follows are a few of their stories.
