LECLAIRE, Iowa—LeClaire Baptist Church has called Nick Oliver as pastor. Nick was previously associate pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in Des Moines and then pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Fort Dodge, Iowa. He and his wife, Jessica, began their new ministry in LeClaire on Oct. 8.

The Lord called me to pastoral ministry at a camp in Colorado when I was 14, and I have been preparing for that ever since,” Nick says. “The path to ministry has taken different turns and stops, but God always led the way.”
