  • Nick hunt

    nyc coordinator

    Me and my wife Jenn have served in youth ministry at College Church in Olathe for over 15 years. We have four kids, Noah 13, Brooklynne 11, Carter 10 and Jentry 8.  I am the General Manager at Rush Truck Centers of Kansas located in Olathe and serve on the Board of Education for the Spring Hill School District. Jenn teaches 4th grade at Wolf Creek Elementary School in Spring Hill, KS.


    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 at College Church 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 event last year.  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 sons either hunting or on the golf course.

  • robert click

    South Central Representative - KC first

    Rob is the Pastor to Youth & Families at College Church. He is a graduate of Southern Nazarene University and had the privilege of serving in churches Texas, Oklahoma, Idaho and now Kansas.


    Rob has been married to his wife, Sarah, since 2011. Together they have 3 girls whom they adore spending time with.


    Rob is an extroverted maximizer, who’s always got a new idea. He loves seeing students encounter God’s greatest for their life through relationships with their peers and the church. His favorite moments in ministry happen in his home, on the basketball court, over a good cup of coffee or meal, spending time with a small group, and wherever else God wants to use him.

  • Travis Johnson

    Northern REPRESENTATIVE

    Travis is very lucky to be married to the love of his life, Katrina. There were blessed on Thanksgiving day 2016 with their daughter Elizabeth. She brings so much joy into their lives! Travis and his wife attended Kentucky Mountain Bible College before moving to Kansas City. He am currently working to finish his Bachelor of Arts in Religion. In the Summer of 2017, Travis received his District Minister’s License in the Church of the Nazarene.

    Travis' favorite food is anything cooked on the grill (or smoked) or Fried. He can’t choose between them. He has a love for music and drama. He has always loved to act and sing. It has been awesome to see how God has used his passions to help him minister to those around him. He loves all different genres of music but some of his favorite artists include Casting Crowns, Jeremy Camp, Tenth Avenue North, Pillar, Skillet, Lecrae, and KJ-52.

    Travis' favorite verse is 1 Corinthians 10:13 - “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”
