- My name is Nick Ford. I am a pastor in my home town of Stafford,Ct. I was raised by two amazing God loving parents, who always told me about how much Jesus loves me. I came to know Jesus as my personal savior when I was eight years old and for the next seven years God slowly worked on me until brought me to the point where I wanted to be all in for Jesus. So as a sophmore in high school I dedicated my life to Jesus and its been a wild ride! When I was a senior in high school God called me to ministry so when I graduated I attended Word of Life Bible Institute for one year. And was then called back home to work as a church intern in a local church in my home town. Following my internship year God brought me across town to another little church in need of a Youth Pastor.I have only been here for little over a year, but God has done some amazing things in me and through this ministry. We have a long way to go and a lot of growing to do. But God has blessed this Rural Youth Pastor, and I hope he'd use me to be a blessing to you too.

Doers not just Hearers
Today in this mornings devotional I read in James about being a doer of the word not just a hearer alone. This is a topic that many of us, including myself on many occasions, need to really apply to our lives. How often do we sit in church or listen to a speakers sermon and in the days to come forget the topics they were speaking of. Now I do mean remember what they were talking about specifically but the lessons that they taught us from the Lord's Word. We as God's servants and students most concern ourselves with not just remembering what we have been taught. But to put into practice what God's word has said, this is something we often struggle with but its something that we do need to work on.
