423 Youth

At 423 we are passionate about leading and building up the next generation of disciples for Christ. John 4:23 talks about a time that is coming where Christians will worship Jesus "in spirit and in truth". We want to help show the youth of Austin what it truly means to worship Jesus like this. 423 is our weekly youth group for 7th-12th graders to come together, have fun, laugh, worship, and understand the truth behind this scripture and so much more.

Youth Pastor

Nick is a born and raised Texas boy. From Abilene to Beaumont, and finally to the great city of Austin, TX, Nick has been on a journey for a real life-changing experience. After a long battle of waging war in the world, God led Nick to Northwest to find that life-changing experience, Jesus! After being radically changed and experiencing Jesus in the truest way, Nick ran hard after God with the calling of leadership and encouragement. On the way, God saw that Nick should not continue down this path alone and put in his life the next best thing other than Jesus, his beautiful, encouraging, strong wife Christina. It was love at first sight (for Nick at least). Now with his helper, Nick leads the young adults and youth groups with a passion for prayer, worship, reading God’s word and great community. Nick enjoys spending time with God, relaxing with his bride, reading new books, BBQ-ing, ultimate frisbee, playing guitar, listening to music, and the great outdoors. Nick and Christina are looking forward to the arrival of their first baby in May of 2017.
