Hi I'm Nick
I'm a Financial Adviser, a Private Pilot and I'm a Mormon.
I'm married and the proud father of four children and two grandchildren. I'm a financial adviser by profession and I am a Partner in a large regional IFA Practice. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and in my spare time fly as a private pilot. I initially learned to fly when I was 17. I take a keen interest in modern and classic cars and enjoy painting in various mediums. I enjoy travel and seeing the rest of the world. I have a particular passion for France where we holiday each year. I work for my local council as a volunteer youth mentor, working with young people to help them become part of society. I love food of all types and enjoy inventing new dishes.
Why I am a Mormon
It was my dear wife who introduced me to the Church. From the moment I met her, I saw in her, the Light of Christ shine from her being. As I met other members of the Church I quickly recognised that each of them had something special and I wanted to be like them. As I was taught the essence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I began to understand that having faith in, and a testimony of Jesus Christ and His restored Gospel, that I could find real purpose and an understanding of what this life on Earth is really all about. More importantly ~ I now know where I'm going after this life! The doctrine taught within the Church made absolute sense to me and the knowledge that Heavenly Father (God), His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost were three separate and distinct personages made me realise that clarity and truth had once again been restored to the Earth. To know that we have a living Prophet on the Earth today who receives revelation from Deity is a great comfort and blessing to me and my family. I am grateful to know that after this life we have the opportunity to be with our families together forever.
How I live my faith
I joined the Church in 1983 and have served in many varied callings since that time. Throughout much of my time in the Church I have been responsible for teaching youth and organising events such as annual camps and conferences for young people. I have served as the Bishop of the Oxford Ward and on the Stake Presidency of the Reading England Stake for 9 years. I currently serve in the Public Affairs Department of the Church responsible for helping others learn of the Church and our faith. On Sunday's I have the great privilege of teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the adult gospel doctrine class.
