Nick Newman is the founder and lead pastor of Propel Church. Born in Charlotte, NC and raised in Mount Pleasant, NC, Nick has had his fair share of trials. Before Christ, Nick was a drug dealer and getting high became a daily routine to function for him.
During that time in Nick’s life he was stuck, and tried to get out over and over again. Yet the only thing that could overcome his addiction was Jesus! It was not until he was propelled into an authentic relationship with Jesus that Nick found FREEDOM! Something we all desire. Nick knows without a shadow of doubt that God is calling him to propel people into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ! Nick says, “If the God who could love me enough to meet me where I was, love me, and still desire a relationship with me, surely thats His desire for all people!”ust of 2011 God rescued Nick from that lifestyle and he has been clean since. On that day, Nick said, “God use me”. Three of the greatest words he had ever spoken and God has done just that!
Nick met his wife, Tori, in July of 2012, a few weeks before she left for a Bible School through YWAM. During the time she was away, they skyped, prayed, and read scripture together knowing that though they were far from each other, God was growing them closer together. Nick and Tori married on January 11th, 2014 and know that God is calling them to display a biblical marriage and the love, grace, and mercy of Jesus Christ.
