My name is Nick Loyd. I am the Lead Pastor at Pathways Church in Mill Creek, WA. We are an in-formal, borderline irreverent, non-denominational, and open-minded church that tries to take God seriously but refuses to take ourselves all that seriously. You can check out our tribe at www.findpathways.com
I’m 38-years old this year. I have a beautiful and gracious wife, Tania, and two kids . My family is teaching me to slow down and celebrate life. I enjoy sports, fitness, nerdy board games, podcasts, lots of HBO TV shows, hop farming, beer snobbery, video games, music, coffee, and lots and lots of books.
I like to express my thoughts through words. I am a follower of Jesus of Nazareth. I don’t belong to or vote for any particular political party or pledge allegiance to an ideology other than Christ. And the things I write and think may or may not reflect the broader views of the church I belong to.
But, most of all, I am trying to let God replicate Himself in me. Many times I fail. But, when I get to the end of my days, I want people closest to me to say, “we sure saw a lot of his God in him.” So, God, take all that I am…my imperfections and hangups, and rewrite your DNA in me. May I be a beautiful living imitation of You.
