were her first exposure to missions and new cultures in other parts of the world. They opened her eyes to devastating poverty but also to hope and full dependence on the Lord in ways that she had never seen so clearly before.
Nicki worked many years as a sales and marketing manager in the hospitality sector which gave her opportunities to develop her skills in management, sales and marketing/communications, administration and working with the public. She currently spends a large majority of her time and energy volunteering in her community and church. She has worked countless hours planning events, working with different people in a variety of ways, building relationships and networking.
In late 2016, Nicki heard a sermon at a missions conference that would change the course of her life. The message was clear: as a Christian, we have three choices. We can GO as a missionary, SEND by assisting in financially enabling others to spread the hope of Jesus, or DISOBEY the commandment to make disciples of all nations. This caused her to assess her life and become more deeply involved in missions. Through much prayer and consideration as to where the Lord was leading her, Nicki began to look for an opportunity that would allow her to use both her passions and her past corporate experiences. The Lord led her to TWR Canada where she feels blessed to be able to use her experiences and excitement to be a part of furthering the gospel around the world.
In her cross-cultural experiences, Nicki noticed the clear presence of media and has become more interested and aware of the role technology and media plays in furthering the gospel, especially in developing nations. At TWR Canada, media, radios, programming and online resources have become an asset to many and have opened the door to expanding the reach of missions around the world. She is excited to share how missions and media overlap and how we can use this asset for God’s glory and the world’s salvation!
