In case you have not been introduced to me yet, my name is Lee Nicholson, and I am the new youth pastor for Christ UMC. I started August 1st and I am very excited to be here. Tim Beck is a friend of mine, and has told me how great you are as a church for years now. My family and I live in Plain Township, just 10 to 15 minutes from here. I have been involved in youth ministry for twenty years in four different cultures; Minnesota, Kentucky, United Kingdom and now Ohio. All four cultures speak English of course but all have different customs, from fishing to the proper way to make tea. In addition I have been teaching at Malone University as an adjunct professor of youth ministry for the past 6 years. But most recently I have been trying to live as a missionary to the local culture of North Canton by working at Starbucks. This past year I felt the push from God to return to full time church ministry and here I am.
