Christian Ministry—Pastoring/Church Planting
Bible Teachers and Preachers
Pastoring and/or Bible Teaching
Nick Lica is the pastor of a Baptist church in Czech Republic.
When did you trust Christ?
I was raised in a Christian family and attended church all of my life growing up. I read the Bible from my first class in school. My mother influenced me spiritually and impacted my life. I developed my relationship with Jesus through my adolescence, and when I was 18 years old I confessed Jesus as my Lord and Savior and was baptized. My only wish in life was to serve God.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
Some of the defining moments in my life include: three years of Bible college in Olomouc, where my faith in God was formed for ministry; 10 years of theological study at TCM Haus Edelweiss Austria; personal Bible study; and relationships with mentors and friends.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I want to attend the Forum to be encouraged, to develop my skills and experience, to learn practical ways to revitalize churches, and to receive practical tools.
What is your ministry?
I am a pastor of Karlovy Vary Baptist Church. We are a very small church, so I am responsible for many tasks, including preaching, teaching, and pastoral counseling. My passion for ministry is to see the church grow both spiritually and numerically.
What are your past leadership roles?
I was the pastor of a Baptist church in Vikyrovice for 11 years. I have been the pastor of my current church since 2010.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I am a pastor who loves the church. I want to see it grow. I have been involved in full-time ministry since 1999. I hope to lead my church and other churches through the revitalization process.
