Meet Nick Hurst! Nick has been serving at Grace for 4 years now. He started serving as a volunteer in Grace Students and when he saw a need on Sunday mornings, he began serving faithfully then too! He hasn’t limited himself to only one part of ministry; Nick first started serving on audio, and then on camera, and now on lights. He has developed his skills throughout these past years and as a result, has been able to teach others how to serve in these areas as well. Nick’s leadership has grown immensely! He served at Merge Camp this summer and said that, “ministry is not just telling people the gospel. It sometimes is about preparing people to receive it and setting up others to be able to tell it.” As Christians, we are called to serve and that has motivated him to continue serving as well as his giftedness, his enjoyment, and fruitfulness in his ministry.
Working from behind the scenes allows for the scene to take place and Nick has worked diligently for our Sunday morning services to happen the way they do! Colossians 3:23-24 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Nick says that serving “has broadened my perspective on what worship and ministry in general are.” Nick, along with the team, is able to create a distraction-free environment during Sunday mornings at Grace. No matter where a person is at in their walk with the Lord or in their everyday life, we want them to feel welcomed! Our production team does a lot to make that happen. Tech ministry is an awesome opportunity for volunteers to use their talents to help produce our Sunday morning service. Our team has diverse needs, with people who serve by operating cameras, using the sound board, programming lights, using production equipment, and more.
