- 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.

Fellowship with Fellow Believers
So I just came home from another bible study. An its really starting to dawn on me how high of an opinion I have of myself. Since I spend every morning in God's word an in prayer I have come to think of myself as something as a spiritual prodigy. But what I have come to see more and more often as I am around my fellow believers. Is that I have so much to learn an I am far from this mass of wisdom an insight I for some reason feel that I am. Which really goes back to what we were talking about in lesson, a lot of it was about humility. An I'm so glad that God has shown me my faulted thinking and has humbled me. And more so that he has given me many friend's in him as well as teacher's an example's I can look towards. As the bible says never deny correction but be happy for it. An all I can say is that I am so happy that God is raising a powerful force in this generation's believers. And that he is giving me many wiser men to turn to for wisdom and Godly council.
