“Nick has a gift for looking at the way things are and envisioning the way they should be; the way God designed and desires them to be.”
Laura Stocks, Missionary In Kenya
“I first met Nick at a community pastors event, he was the one person in the room that made you feel like you wanted to go up and shake his hand and get to know him. He just projected that image of outgoing, but unassuming, friendly but grounded in his own self-differentiation.
In talking with the youth and youth leaders of my church, I quickly came to know that Nick had built the kind of youth program at Ore Creek that I wish we had at the United Methodist Church; the right blend between giving the youth Christ and giving them enough room to be themselves, a good balance between reflective time and fun time, all packaged in love and genuine concern for their well being.
Observations from Nick's neighbor: Frequently took walks with his wife and children around the neighborhood, visiting with neighbors as he went. Once came across Nick out in a local park on a Sunday afternoon kicking leaves with his family.”
Fred Finzer, Pastor Of Hartland United Methodist Church
“Nick is committed to seeing the fruit of Christ lived out in others lives. He is authentic and creative with people of all ages. His passion is serving the church and growing in discipleship. I have seen that fruit in his life and in the way in which he lives.”
Tom Looker, Engineering Professor
“He taught us how to serve God from a young age.”
Ashley Harrington, Teen Missions Staff Person
“Nick has an ability to lead in a way that loves and challenges at the same time... The focus Nick had when leading changed the way I pray for my kids... Jen’s passion for the Lord and involvement in the lives of others is contagious.”
Steve Cusick, Father Of Two Boys
“Pastor Nick is one of the best Pastors I've ever had. He's a really cool guy, you can tell he likes to get involved in the kids lives, and tries to help them out. He's one of the reasons I want to be a youth Pastor.”
Luke Bolinger, High School Student
“You'll love the way Nick connects with people through disc golf. He's the only person I know who plays disc golf without smoking pot... If you commit to Nick for the long haul, in about 20 years you are sure to have the perfect Santa Claus for all your Christmas events... But Seriously... Nick possesses a rare blend of deep relational skills mixed with a natural bent towards finely tuned organizational skills. When I met him he was a youth pastor for two separate age groups, the backbone of our county-wide youth pastor's network, and the driving force behind his church's planning for future growth. He will work 80 hours a week if you let him. (Please don't let him!)”
Derick Steele, The Warrior’s Path
“Nick is one of those few people with both a huge heart of compassion and the organizational skills to pull off whatever arises out of that heart.”
Brad Killian, Youth Pastor
“We will never forget our first missions trip to Honduras working with Nick and his team from Michigan in 2004. They were helping build a feeing center here in Honduras and we were here for our first 3 month fact finding mission exploration. Nick whole-heartedly invited us to be part of the team without even knowing us. We had the privilege of working alongside of them for that 2 weeks and it was that time period that "caught" our hearts and sealed the call for our permanent placement here helping the impoverished people in the mountains of Tegucigalpa. If Nick had not given us that opportunity, I don't know if we would be here today.”
Randy Lundrigan, Missionary in Honduras
“Nick has a passion and desire to live his life and make decisions with genuine integrity and excellence in all he strives to do, be, accomplish, etc. He has a vision/goal of influencing others with that same integrity and excellence in people that he comes in contact with throughout his daily life - personal, work, leader, pastor...He does this with all seriousness and strength.
Nick desires to share, influence, plant his passion and love for our Savior Lord Jesus Christ in the lives of others; so that they may in turn do the same with people that come across their paths. He strives to build not just a saving knowledge of our God, but a lifestyle worthy of Godliness in daily decisions, functions, walks of life, A lifestyle of purity, morality, wholeness, thankfulness - all because of what Jesus did for us. He does this not to be 'legalistic' but to be the best he can be and rise to the call and task. (Ecc. 9:10, Col. 3:23)
Nick's preaching and written word is strong, attentive ("takes you there"), full, knowledgeable, life applicable, imaginative, adventurous, convicting, firm with some gentleness....”
Rob and Karen Rehnlund, Church Facilities Manager and Secretary
I first met Nick in Honduras while he was leading a youth missions team. His leadership abilities resounded as he rallied his team to press into the tasks at hand, showing his leadership by example from a servant’s heart. Nick has also proven his servanthood outside the normal responsibilities of church by helping establish our organization’s efforts to fundraise through the sale of coffee in the US. Anyone employing Nick would soon find his dedication an asset to their objectives and benefit from his suave understanding of multi-media and promotion.
Derm Westcott, Missionary to Honduras
Nick is a humble man of integrity whose love for the Lord is obvious and contagious.
Karen Moeller, Pastor’s Wife
Because of his love for God and his family, and because of his integrity, Nick is an example of the kind of Christian we should all aspire to be.
Joel Perry, Missionary To Iraq
Nick has a gift for spotting potential in people and encouraging the growth and development of that potential in the individual. Nick's encouragement and investment in my life has been a major influence in my coming to know Christ and in the growth of my relationship with God since then.
Rachel Miceli, College Student in Spain
Nick Dimmick is a natural leader. He is a self motivated entrepreneur of church systems and growth.
Nick Dimmick played a large part as my youth pastor and friend in shaping me into who I am. As my youth pastor, he encouraged service to others and how to live differently from the world. Through mission trips and service projects, Nick gave me and many others a taste of what living in full service to God is like, and how to continue loving and serving every day.
As my friend, Nick has given much of his time to help with every problem and minor inconvenience I’ve taken to him. He has never changed his attitude or willingness to serve inside or outside of working hours. I consider him as good a friend as any other I’ve ever had.
