About Us

Our Pastor

Rev. Nick Jordan, his wife Melinda, and their sons, Milo and Thomas, moved to Bartonville in July 2014. (Okay, Thomas didn't arrive till 2016.) Immediately before that, Nick had worked both as a hospital chaplain and a Starbucks barista. He completed his M.Div. at Duke Divinity School in 2009 and a Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) residency at Duke University Hospital in 2010.

Nick is passionate about helping people to understand the entire story of Scripture and to imagine how we might see our own lives in Christ as a continuation of that story, how we might see ourselves as a people God has blessed and embraced in order to send out to bless and embrace others. (Feel free to subscribe to the sermon podcast via iTunes. or click the "Sermons" tab.)

Some of Nick's recent favorite places to find some goodness, beauty, and truth:

  • Read: The Abundance by Annie Dillard; Swimming in the Sun by Albert Haase; Commonwealth by Ann Patchett; The New Parish by Paul Sparks, Tim Soerens, and Dwight Friesen
  • Listen: That's My Story: John Lee Hooker Sings the Blues; Requiem by John Rutter
  • Watch: Boyhood (dir. Richard Linklater); Calvary (dir. John Michael McDonagh); Life Itself (dir. Steve James)
  • Contact information:

    Nick also sometimes writes on his personal blog, Mostly Consolation.
