Dr. Nick Gatzke,
Nick’s role at OBC primarily consists of preaching,
teaching, leadership, and pastoral care. His number one passion
in life is preaching the Bible in a clear and relevant fashion
because, through the message of the cross, the Holy Spirit
really does radically change lives!
Nick and his wife Amy long to see the reality of Christ and
His Kingdom penetrate individual lives and communities in this
world of chaos. Jesus’ message provides us with a profound
hope and membership into the vehicle of God in this world--the
Church. Therefore, at OBC we have a zeal for seeing people
grow in their faith, helping them to identify their spiritual
gifts and empowering them to use them, and encouraging them
in a missional lifestyle that exhorts them to take up their
calling as ambassadors of King Jesus in their jobs, neighborhoods
and social networks.
Nick holds degrees from Moody Bible Institute (B.A.), Gordon-Conwell
Theological Seminary (M.Div), and the London School of Theology
(PhD). Nick is married to Amy, his partner in life and ministry.
They have been blessed with a daughter, Alexa Ivie. In his free time, he loves to read, engage in good
conversation with friends, play golf, and to periodically head
up to Fenway Park for a Red Sox game.
