Nick and Katie have been married since July 2008 and had their first son Isaac Daniel, in March 2012 and their second son, Cayden Nicholas in November 2014. They are expecting their third child in April, 2017. They love being parents and are thankful for these two blessings!
Nick became a Christian his freshman year of college at the U of M. Men on the Campus Outreach Staff Team came to his dorm room and invited him to play frisbee and cultivated a friendship with him that changed his entire perspective of what it means to be a person who is saved by grace.
Meanwhile, Katie was a student at the U working 3 jobs and taking 18 credits a semester, with very little time or interest in growing spiritually. Her goals were to graduate and get a good job until a few women came into her life her Junior year of college. After investing in Katie, Katie suddenly realized her life was empty and void of true friendships and a growing relationship with Jesus. She considers herself so incredibly fortunate to have been discipled by Samantha Poteat for her last 1.5 years of college. She learned how to read the word of God and open her life up to other Christian women, and her life vision drastically changed after seeing how knowing Jesus radically changed the rest of her life.
Since the beginning of their marriage in 2008, Nick and Katie Shepherd the Resource Staff Team. Nick serves mainly as the CO Minneapolis Resource Director, directing the operations and administration for the ministry. Katie is spending her time investing in the women in the Resource Team and is also passionate about leading worship music and song-writing.
