  • Nick Hunt

    Vice President

    nyc coordinator

    My Wife Jenn and I have served in youth ministry for the past 20 years on the Kansas City District.  We have four kids, Noah 18, Brooklynne 16, Carter 14 and Jentry 12.  I have been in the commercial vehicle sales industry for about ten years.  I have also served on the Spring Hill Boar of Education as well as the Kansas City District’s NYC coordinator for the past 10 years.  Jenn teaches 4th grade at Wolf Creek Elementary School in Spring Hill, KS and serves on our local church board at Grace Community Church.


    We love serving the youth of the church and enjoy entertaining at our home in rural Spring Hill.  

    I am a product of the local Nazarene youth ministry here in Kansas City and also a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps.

    I have enjoyed planning and executing trips for our youth group while between youth pastors as well as coordinating the District’s NYC events in 2015 and 2019.  I look forward to planning many events for the district in the future.

    In my free time (which is VERY little) you can find me and my kids either on our Jet Skis or on the golf course.
