North Area DirectorS

Reid and Nikki met as sophomores at the University of Northwestern, where Reid played football and Nikki played soccer. Being fall athletes, they were always around one another and hit it off right away. Okay, it was way more complicated than that, but a great story. They were married in 2011 and serve as the campus directors over Bethel and Northwestern.

Both Reid and Nikki were impacted in college through Campus Outreach and saw how much believing in the gospel of Jesus Christ changes everything. Reid, studying biology, and Nikki studying marketing - graphic design, felt a pull on their hearts to change their vocational direction to making Christ known to college students, in the same way others had done for them. Discipleship is needed, and college is the perfect time when students start asking the question, "what do I believe?" We love seeing the power of God at work in students lives at UNW and BU and getting a front row seat to see hearts move from death to life.
